The Babolat X Feel Blast badminton racket is described as a head heavy stiff racket that delivers power to the user.

My findings were different to the marketing, which makes me wonder whether this is down to the completely different feel on the string bed or the string/tension combination that I feel, simply didn’t deliver.

Babolat make fine badminton rackets and I wonder if a change of string in this racket could prove to be a lot more interesting.

If you have used this racket yourself please feel free to add your comments below, especially if you have had it restrung.
