Which badminton racquet is right for me?
Steel: The most durable, but slightly heavier. For all play, especially rugged use.
Aluminum: Lighter than steel; a little easier to control. For all play.
Composites: (Such as graphite and titanium alloys) Very light and extremely rigid; provide the best control. For advanced play.
Single Shaft: The traditional design; lightweight and suitable for all play.
Twin Shaft: Stronger than single shaft; ideal for rough use.
Monofilament Nylon: A single strand of nylon; relatively responsive and strong. For all play.
Multifilament (Braided) Nylon: Multiple strands of braided nylon; stronger and more responsive than monofilament. For advanced play.
Coated-Steel: Braided steel wire with a thin coating to prevent rust and fraying; the strongest but least responsive. Ideal for rough use.
