As we know that Duora 10 is developed with two cross sections (1) with Aero Type section for speedy racket handling, this side is suitable for backhands. (2) Box type frame which is suitable for powerful shots or smashes.

We used the Box type frame section for hitting the smashes and 3rd line clear. Performance from 3Rd line is good and smashes got power. But it is very strange, even if you tried the Forehand side ,it will generate the sufficient power .

Observations:

Overall, Duora 10 generates good power from 3rd line and better smash power. Both the fame sides are good for taking the smashes

Z Force 2 is equipped with improved Aerodynamics frame. It is head shape is unique and smaller as compare to other Yonex Rackets which helps in offering better power on shots. Yonex used thinnest shaft which further improve the swing speed of the racket.

If you play single game than you can easily play cuts and drive shots with more accuracy but if you are a doubles player then you may feel some sluggishness in responding to net area. It is a head heavy racket with extraordinary power on hand.

This unique capability makes this racket suitable for a different shuttle game.

Balance point of Racket:

Balance_Point_Badminton_racket_Khelmart_main_concept

Balance_Point_Badminton_racket_Khelmart_main_concept

Balance point of the racket is a point where we can balance it. Balance point defines the overall dynamics of the racket. Based on balance point a racket can be classified into 3 types:

Head Heavy Configuration:

 

If you try to balance the racket on finger and find out that its balance point is closer to head side (it means weight of the racket is more toward head side) than racket will said as head heavy configuration.

 

Head heavy racket are suitable for those player who love to play powerful shots. Due to moment of inertia, Head heavy configuration offer better power on shots so player can perform better smashes, better punch shots along with drive and cross corner shots.

Yonex Voltric series is most popular in head heavy series, Thrax Furious series is head series in Thrax Racket.

Yonex Voltric 5 is most popular model in Yonex Voltric series which offers better power on shots along with fast racket swing speed. Yonex Voltric series is equipped with Tri Voltage system which offers better power and better swing speed.

Head Light Configuration:

If you try to balance the racket on finger and find out that its balance point is closer to handle side (it means weight of the racket is more toward handle side) than racket will said as head light configuration.

Head light badminton rackets are consider as fast and quick as because of lesser weight on head side. This type of racket helps in fast swing speed which results into quick drive shots, quick drop shots and you can surprise your opponent by lightening fast swing speed.

 

Yonex Nanoray series represent the head light series which suitable for all round type of players. Nanoray series is good for those who love to player fast and quick shots.

 

Yonex Nanoray z Speed is very popular racket in Nanoray series and already recorded the fastest badminton smash.

Stiffness of the Shaft:

Stiffness_Badminton_racket_Khelmart

Stiffness_Badminton_racket_Khelmart

Shiftiness of the shaft is very important characteristics of a racket. Stiffness represents the amount of bending of a shaft. If shaft of racket is stiffer than it will be difficult to bend it. Stiff shaft transfer the maximum power to shuttle and suitable for those who love to play with more power on smash and shots.

Stiffness_Badminton_racket_Khelmart_concept

Stiffness_Badminton_racket_Khelmart_concept

Stiffer Shaft Rackets:

We know that if a shuttle hold on string bed for some time than there will be power on shots while on other hand if a shuttle repelled immediately after contact to string bed then there will some power loss.

Power on shuttle is transfer from string bed and it is depend on flexibility.

Stiffer Shaft offers lesser repulsion thus results into less power on shots. Rackets developed with stiffer shaft provide better control on shots.

As stiff shaft provide better control on shots so it will be suitable for players who love to play fast game with control shots on net area.

To handle the stiffer shaft rackets, advance level of badminton skills are required by player.

Yonex Voltric Z Force II is stiff shaft racket which offers extra ordinary speed and control to shuttle.

Flexible Shaft Rackets:

Flexible shaft are tends to flex during shuttle impact. With this action, shuttle holds on string bed for bit longer time and thus results into good repulsion. This action allow shaft to work as spring which Store energy during shuttle impact and releases it with more power.

So we can say that, Flexible shaft offers better power on shots as compare to stiff shaft.

As shuttle holds on string bed, so flexile shaft racket provide lesser control on shuttle and it is bit difficult to manage the shot control with flexible shaft.

Flexible shaft rackets are suitable for beginner to intermediate players.

Material of Rackets:

Material_Badminton_racket_Khelmart

Material_Badminton_racket_Khelmart

Following are some of the popular rackets used in Rackets

  • Aluminum Allow for beginner rackets
  • Carbon graphite material
  • High Modulus Graphite material
  • Durable Grade Graphite Material

Different player required different type of racket and behavior of racket is also depends on material used in shaft and frame.

Rackets made with aluminum material will be heavy in nature (around 100 gms) and offer less flexibility to player.

Rackets made with carbon graphite material will be lightweight in nature and can sustain better impact and bending strength

Nowadays, manufactures are using higher grade graphite material for making the known as high Modulus. HM graphite provides better strength to racket along with better flexibility and durability.

 

Frame shape and cross section of the racket:

There are two type of frame shape is very popular among the players.
