Try to get your timing right, it’s makes you swing faster not slower. It’s a decent all around racquet I did pretty well with it but it was too flexy since I’m used to extra stiff racquets. Try to get timing on point so consistently try to hit the sweet spot.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a badminton racket light?

In theory the only way to make a racquet play lighter is to remove mass from the head. People will add weight to their grip to make the balance point lower. Now, this is true, and the balance will alter and become lower.

How do you start stringing a badminton racket?

Start from top center, keep on stringing until B9. Go through B12, directly to A11, and then straight to A10, down to B10 and tie off at B8. (Opposite side: the same procedure.)

How do I know if my badminton racket is good?

Different types of badminton rackets range from 70g – 99.9g in weight. Rackets that weigh less than 85g are termed lightweight – they are the best rackets for new players. Some advanced players also prefer light rackets because of the faster swing speed and maneuverability.

How long does it take to get used to a racket?

For me, it depends. It takes a while (4-6 weeks) to really hit all shots cleanly with a racquet and not think about it, but once I’m used to it I can switch back pretty easily.

Do I need to restring my badminton racket?

Over time strings will wear, lose tension, and inevitably will break – but when should you consider restringing your badminton racket if they have not snapped? If you feel a noticeable drop in performance, loss of power and/or control, or a dull hitting sound, fresh strings from a reputable stringer could do the job.

How do I make my racquet heavy?

To make a racquet swing heavier without substantially increasing overall weight, you can add two 2- to 3-inch strips of TW tungsten tape to the inner hoop of the racquet’s tip. This will result in a 5- to 7-point swingweight increase.

Do professional badminton players use light rackets?

Usually, beginners and intermediate players prefer to play with lighter badminton racket due to their enhanced stroking capacity and comfortability. Whereas professional players prefer to play with slightly heavier badminton rackets because they provide more powerful shots.

Do rackets lose tension?

Strings begin losing tension the moment your racket is taken off the stringing machine. As tension drops, you lose control and the ability to generate as much topspin especially if you play with a polyester tennis strings. In general, polyester tennis strings lose tension quicker than multifilament strings.

Is it hard to string a badminton racket?

No, it’s not that hard. You need to know how to pre-string the racket (thread the strings through) then use the machine to tension a string and then clamp it. Another important skill is tying off the strings well.
