Badminton Racket Reviews


Visitors: 164

If your looking to buy a new badminton racket, chances are your going to look for some sort of review of it. There are hundreds of these reviews on the internet, and the best to look are the forums. This is all well and good, but you need to view these with a little caution.

The problem with online badminton racket reviews is that they are all personal. One size does not fit all. Every badminton player is different, with different style, technique and ability. Here is where the problem lies. If one person says that a badminton racket gives them more power, or control, how do you know it will do the same for you?

You don't. What you need to do is know your own game inside out. Only by knowing yourself will you be able to tell if a racket is going to suit your game.

Let me give you an example. The most expensive badminton rackets are designed for control, they predominantly have very stiff flexibility, which means you have to generate the power with your technique. These kinds of racquet are for advanced players, the manufacturer assumes you are good enough to use them, and you have to be, or else your game will probably get worse with these advanced rackets.

Now if you are a beginner or a novice player, reading an advanced players’ review of these badminton rackets will not be much use to you. Many of the reviews are based on the top end models because people have spent a lot of money on them, and they want to tell the world all about them.

There are also other factors to consider, the most important being the string tension used in the review. Strings change the behaviour of rackets, period. Make sure the reviewer states the string tension used, this will give you more of an idea if it relates to your own game. If you don't know the importance of stringing tension, then just reading the review will be of little use to you. As i said before, you need to know your own game and ability beforehand.

This may sound a little negative, but take badminton racket reviews with a pinch of salt, they can only ever be a rough guide to you.
