There are different component of racket for example Grip , Material , Head Shape , Shaft Flexibility , Balance , Material , String Tension .
What is Grip of Badminton Racket
The grip is from where you hold the racket . It is denoted by G in Yonex badminton racket , it comes in variance from G1 to G5 .
whereas G1 & G2 is having large diameter and it is designed for those who are having relatively large hands.
Smaller grip size will allow for finger power/ wrist action to be used whereas a bigger grip size will utilize more of arm.
There are different ways you can grip/ hold your racket depending upon your style of play ( How to hold the racket ) .
G4 is the standard grip and most of the Yonex badminton racket comes in this size only .
|4 inch||3.75 inch||3.5 inch||3.25 inch||3 inch||2.75 inch|
While in Lining (another badminton racket manufacturing company) comes in S1 and S2 Grip sizes
Weight of Badminton Racket
Most standard badminton rackets comes in weight from 85-92g( Without the string and grip ). It is donated by U.
U and 2U considered to be power racket and it is recommended for professional players and if you are beginner I would recommend you for 3U i.e Light racket .
For heavy weight racket more finger and wrist is used and for light weight arm is used
|75-79.9 gm||80-84.9 gm||85-92 gm||90-94.9 gm||95-99.9 gm|
Head Shape of Badminton Racket
There two types of shape either Oval shape or Isometric .
In Isometric shape there is larger sweet spot for beginner to play more efficiently
If you are beginner I would recommend to have Isometric frame , the reason is larger sweet spot make it easier to hit a shot without putting to much power and result into better short .
- Oval Shape
While on the other side, Oval shape badminton rackets will be with small small sweet spot and it will result into more power .
I will recommend these type of rackets to professional or advanced players .
Because of small sweet spot more power will be delivered and more accuracy is required.
Material of Badminton Racket
Badminton racket is made up of either Wood , Aluminum, Steel , Carbon ,Graphite , Aluminum & Steel .
If you are beginner and just starting we will recommend for Steel / Aluminum .
if you are intermediate then you can think of Carbon Fiber and for professional we will recommend for Graphite as it will be most expensive one.
