Hi

I am looking at getting a new badminton racket and wanted some advice. I currently play once a week with friends and am not looking at play competitively but would like to upgrade my badminton racket.

I currently have a Carlton Enhance 40 Racket which has been ok but I would like to upgrade to something lighter and with a graphite/carbon frame.

My budget is around £30 and I have seen a few models but am undecided. The models I have seen are below:

Carlton Airlite Power Racket 85g - £24.99
Dunlop Graviton AP 8300 Racket 83g - £29.99
Yonex Nanoray 9 Racket 88g - £30
Yonex Arcsaber SigmaRacket 87g - £34.99


If there are any other models that anyone can advise then this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

    Thought you were talking about the noise when you play badminton.

    To be honest, its horses for courses.

    What I recommend would suit my play style, swing and strength.

    Best bet would be to either go into shops and swing some around, or ask friends to play a game with theirs, and decide from there.

    String tension is almost as important as racket, once you have the right one!
