1. Most badminton rackets, including the handle, are about 68 cm long. The badminton racket head is usually no longer than 29 cm while the strung surface is around 28 cm long and 22 cm wide.
2. Yonex badminton rackets come in two major head shapes - isometric or square and oval. While oval is the traditional badminton racket shape, the isometric shape has gained in popularity because of its wider and enlarged hitting area.
3. The shaft and the head frame of a Halex badminton racket are made of metal. While regular frames are made of steel or aluminum, you can choose lighter badminton rackets, which have graphite or titanium frames.
4. If you are a defensive player, choose a lighter SportCraft badminton racket for better accuracy and control. An attacking player should opt for a head-balanced racquet, which has slightly more weight in the head for extra power.
5. If you're a beginner, start with lower string tension of around 20 lbs, adjust it to 22-23 lbs as you become more adept at the game, and go up over 25 lbs only when you become an aggressive player. Remember that a racket with high-tension strings helps a hard-hitting player but is of no help to a lighter hitter.
6. If you are a power player, opt for a stiffer badminton racquet, which will add power to your shots. A flexible badminton racquet is better suited for defensive players and lighter hitters.
7. A yonex badminton shuttlecock is a combination of 16 nylon or authentic feathers fixed in the base, a wooden cork, string, and glue. The feathered badminton shuttlecocks are said to have better flight, but don't last as long as the nylon ones.
8. Choose a dark-colored badminton net made of fine cord with an even thickness. Badminton nets usually come with posts for quick and easy set-up.
9. Invest in a good pair of shoes designed for badminton movements. Make sure your shoes are lightweight for faster feet movement and have gum rubber soles to grip the surface and prevent slipping.
10. Not only does a racket bag let you conveniently carry your yonex badminton rackets, they also protect your rackets against accidental damage. Our large selection lets you choose from bags that hold one or multiple rackets.
