Badminton is game of Fun and Passion. The Critical Parts of Badminton Game is  Badminton Racket.
Badminton Rackets are very expensive as compare to other sports goods , more over it is very important to understand different parameters and attributes of Badminton Rackets before go for badminton shopping offline or online badminton shopping. We must understand that for a new player , it not mandatory to buy very costly racket or top end features , he or she can opt
Badminton Rackets cost around 800-1600 Indian Rupees.
In this post we shall discuss some important aspects of buying brand new badminton rackets. Lets us discuss about fundamentals of Badminton Rackets,
following are the key parameter of Badminton Rackets:
1.Weight, the balance
2.Head shape
3.Flexibility
4.Grip size
Normally Badminton Rackets weight vary from 80-120 gms. There is direct relationship between badminton weight and player performance. Heavy Rackets gives more power but it is obvious it takes more energy while playing power shots or smashes. Light weight Rackets will offer more swing and will take less energy during power play.
One of lightest badminton Rackets is Karakal SL-70, Weight of this Rackets is around 70gms without string and over grip. For showing  the Weight of Rackets, different manufactures are having there own systems. For instance Yonex (Words Leader in Badminton Rackets) uses U
system, 4U= 80-84g , U= 95-100g.
Now Les us discuss the Balance of Badminton Rackets. We can categorize the Racket Balance into three categor:
1.Head Heavy
2.Head Light
3.Even Balance
Heavy Head Rackets gives more power and stability while lighter head rackets enable player to swing rackets very rapidly, incase of evenly balance racket its provide the natural feel.
Rackets normally comes with very various head shape :
1.Oval Shape
2.Isometric Shape

Isometric Shape rackets give enlarge sweet spot.
The flexibility of the racket relates to how much flex there is. A stiff racquet will have less flexibility and as such it is unforgiving for a beginner. A flexible racket will obviously have more flex and this will give a beginner a bit more power, as you will have a kind of sling shot effect, but the downside is you will have less control. You should only buy a stiff flex racket when your technique is up to scratch, otherwise you may get shoulder problems, as the vibration from hitting the shuttle travels through your arm and into your shoulder joints.
Grip sizes also come with different systems. Yonex badminton have their G system, which ranges from G2 (the largest)to G5 (the smallest). Other brands use small, medium and large.

  3. This is very nice article.
    I’m 40 yrs & plays out door using Lim-25 for 5yrs now. I loved the racket. I’m a hard hitter using yonex Mavis plastic corks. Recently my racket needed a string change. Thinking if it is worth buying a new one. My preference is the racket should be lightest possible. What would you suggest sir ? No budget constraints.
    What sting would you suggest fo my old racket ?
