Racket weight is a personal preference, but a head heavier racket does add more power if you have enough strength to control the racket. Head heavier rackets are not suited for all players. Lighter rackets are easier to control, but you give up some power if they are too light.
Consequently, what is the heaviest badminton racket?
E.g. HEAD Airflow 3000 Racquet (73 gms) or Yonex Arcsaber FB Racquet (73 gms). Heavier Racquets (>86 gm): These racquets provide more momentum & speed to the shuttle. These badminton racquets are well-suitable for the players with strong shoulders and for those who can handle heavy racquets for their power-packed game.
Secondly, how do you know if a badminton racket is heavy?
Any racket with a balance point of 285-290mm (length measured from the bottom of the racket handle, without any replacement grip being applied) is considered a balanced racket, while anything lesser than that is considered head light, and anything more is considered head heavy.
What is U and G in badminton?
U represents the weight of the racket, while G represents the length of the racket. Each racket should be marked with its weight. Most badminton rackets manufacturers use 1U, 2U, 3U, and 4U to indicate the weight of the rackets, with 1U being the heaviest and 4U the lightest. 1U: The weight is 95-99 grams or more.
Do heavier rackets give more power? Yes. Heavyweight tennis racquets (+ 300 grams) help to produce more power behind the ball and can help to maintain control in a faster swing. Heavier racquets are mostly used by Professional, Tour, Advanced players as well as those who want to generate more power.
In general, head-heavy rackets offer higher hitting power but require more control to wield correctly. They’re built to propel the ball at high speed by using large oversized heads, lighter overall weights, and longer and stiffer construction.
Designed to update the Voltric series, Yonex Astrox rackets are head-heavy and aimed at players that seek as much power as possible. However, Yonex Astrox rackets, while maintaining the power of the Voltric series, provide more speed and acceleration thanks to a new type of graphite material; Namd.
A:Astrox Smash is best since I’ve played from both of theses astrox have
|Head Size||95.3 sq/in|
|Head Shape||Isometric Shape|
I won’t discuss the marketing or technology behind the Astrox preferring to leave the “techy” information the geeks. This review sample is slight head heavy, medium/stiff flex, standard size head and a “boxy” frame which means there are no additional aerodynamic qualities.
The fastest smash achieved in actual competition belongs to Denmark’s Mads Pieler Kolding, who unleashed a shot timed at 264.7 mph (426 kph) playing for the Chennai Smashers in India’s 2017 Premier League.
