You should be aware of several factors as a player when choosing a new badminton racket. Essential ones are weight distribution and the flexibility of the shaft.
The rackets are available in weight classes between 70-90 grams (approximately). Weight distribution has a big impact on the style of play that reflects you. The lighter a rack is, the faster it is to play with, and at the same time, a heavy racket gives more punch.
The most normal weight class is around 83-87 grams, where you get both excellent power and control in your game. If they are lighter than this, you will get a fast racket movement, especially in front of the net and on the defensive, while a heavy racket will give excellent power in your offensive strokes. There are three types of weight balances:
- Main Light
- Even balance
- Head heavy
The headlight racket allows you to add a lot of speed to your game. It is especially in the defensive and flat game that you will benefit most from this weight distribution. You can hit the ball back quickly with a quick racket swing while maintaining good control.
As the racket's head is the headlight, you should add more power yourself, as not as much is generated in the headlight weight class. But with the fast game of badminton, you see more and more people using these lightweight models.
Usually, it is mixed and doubles players who choose these badminton tracks. That said, we, of course, see lots of men's players, mainly using anything other than racks that are headlights. For example, if you are a back-court player who often gets setups, it may be an advantage to play with a different type of racket, which may generate slightly more power.
The weight class is a mixture of the headlight and a head heavy weight distribution. The neutral badminton racket has the weight distribution in the middle, and these we also call even balance racks. This weight class will give you both a hint of power and control and thus refers to a wide range of players.
It is a rock-solid choice, and anyone can play with this type of rack for badminton.
Usually, we see that single players are excited about the head heavy models with lots of power. In singles, you have more time than in doubles to hit your shots, and hence you can make it difficult for the opponent if you come with a badminton rack with enough power.
The flexibility of the shaft
The basic rule is that the more experienced a badminton player you are and the faster your swing, the stiffer your shaft should be.
That's why there are three different stiffnesses, so it's essential to find out your needs and current level.
