Choosing the Best Badminton Racket for Your Play Style
Deciding on the best badminton racket is one of the most significant decisions facing any badminton player from beginner to professional. It's where your game starts and ends. With so many options, it's important to match the best badminton racket with the type of game you play. Li-Ning has simplified the process and caters its rackets to a number of distinct play styles by offering Boost, Combat, Drive and Instinct series rackets. For more details on finding the right fit for you, see the Li-Ning Badminton Racket Guide at the top of the page, including comparison charts and specifications on every Li-Ning badminton racket we carry. Your choice of the best badminton racket reflects the way you strike the shuttlecock and a number of other factors that define your game. Therefore Li-Ning manufactures only the highest quality options made from carbon fibre designed to be durable, to be highly responsive on the court, and to exceed your expectations.
Find the Right Li-Ning Badminton Racket Series for Maximum Enjoyment
First, determine what type of badminton racket from the various Li-Ning series best compliments your style of play. Offensive players may prefer the Combat or Drive series, known for their maximum striking power and lightweight, aggressive strength, respectively. Others may wish to minimize reaction time with the Instinct, maximize command of the badminton racket with Boost, or develop well-rounded, balanced play with more than one series. Once you have decided on the kind of badminton racket you prefer, weigh the following five important characteristics to narrow further your search: grip size, balance point, overall badminton racket weight, flexibility and string tension.
Grip Size is a Factor in Badminton Racket Feel and Play Performance
To determine the ideal grip size for you, remember that you will need a badminton racket that feels comfortable and won't slip in your hand. Consider a smaller grip, which is a popular option among players because it extends the hand and allows for intricate net play, greater accuracy, power, and deception. Extra-small sizes are also available on many Li-Ning badminton racket models. The balance point, or distribution of weight, of the racket, influences power, defence, comfort and general steadiness. It also determines how heavy or light a badminton racket feels overall.
A Badminton Racket can Weight Between 72 and 89 Grams
A Li-Ning badminton racket can range in weight between 72 and 89 grams, so make sure your selection is correct for your play style, play level and athletic ability. The weight of your badminton racket affects offensive momentum and power, as well as defensive play. Li-Ning badminton rackets also come with various shaft options, from flexible to stiff, so consider how much response you need when making your choice. For enhanced power, performance and control, choose Li-Ning strings, available in various diameters and colours, for your online badminton racket purchase. Striking the shuttlecock with the right string and string tension can be gratifying and help lift your game.
