This is a great racket to hit with. Headweight is not too much to become fatiguing. The sleek lines on the racket allow for low drag, fast flowing hitting and it’s easy to understand why this racket has to be one of the biggest secrets in badminton. Clears flowed beautifully and easily. I must mention the string felt really good too. It’s my favourite gauge although a touch oily on the surface for me to consider it a stock item.
Drop shots were sharp. There’s a good feeling on contact that gives you confidence in the shot you select. Slice works well. The stringbed provides a good, solid hitting area although not as stiff as some rackets I’ve tested over the years.
Onto the smash. Again, the frame moves well and there’s plenty of power to dial in as when you need it. The head isn’t too heavy to inhibit the swing speed, and the stiffness is sufficient to allow some flex without altering timing. Smashes were accurate and steep.
Flat drives were quick and again, there is no sign of fatigue. The racket continues to move well and deliver crisp, drives with little backswing.
