Badminton - Wikipedia

Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock (also known as a shuttle, bird, or birdy) with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor.

The shuttlecock (or shuttle) is a feathered projectile whose unique aerodynamic properties cause it to fly differently from the balls used in most racquet sports; in particular, the feathers create much higher drag, causing the shuttlecock to decelerate more rapidly than a ball. Shuttlecocks have a much higher top speed, when compared to other racquet sports. Because shuttlecock flight is affected by wind, competitive badminton is played indoors. Badminton is also played outdoors as a casual recreational activity, often as a garden or beach game.

Since 1992, badminton has been an Olympic sport with five events: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles, in which each pair consists of a man and a woman. At high levels of play, the sport demands excellent fitness: players require aerobic stamina, agility, strength, speed and precision. It is also a technical sport, requiring good motor coordination and the development of sophisticated racquet movements.

Basic Badminton Equipment

Uniform

There are few restrictions on the clothing for badminton matches, but players tend to wear short pants and short-sleeve shirts, with flat-soled training shoes. Older regulations – similar to those in tennis – stipulated that clothing had to be 75 per cent white, but this is no longer a requirement of the modern game.

Shuttlecock

The shuttlecock is made of a small piece of cork, coated with leather and 25 to 28cm wide. On its base are attached 16 natural or synthetic goose feathers, forming a cone. It must be a maximum of 70mm in length and 68mm in width, and should weigh between 4.74 and 5.50 grams.

Racquet

Badminton racquets – like their tennis counterparts – have progressed from simple wooden construction to the use of sophisticated lightweight materials such as aluminium, graphite and titanium. They have a round head containing a rigid mesh of synthetic strings for hitting the shuttlecock, a shaft and a non-slip grip. The head can be a maximum of 23cm wide and 29cm long, while the overall length is a maximum of 68cm. It should weigh between 85 and 100 grams.

The court

Badminton matches are played on a court that is 6.1m wide and 13.4m long, with specific markings for singles and doubles matches. The playing area for singles matches is slightly narrower than the court at a width of 5.18m, while the playing area for doubles matches uses the full court width and length. There must be clearance of 2m on all sides, and a ceiling height of 12m for high shots.

The net

The net in the middle of the court is 76cm wide, and is made of a fine mesh of dark-coloured cord, so that it can be seen through, while remaining visible at all times. At the top of the net is a white strip to clarify its position. The net is held rigid by a pair of posts either side of the court, with its top at a height of 1.55m.

hey there, the rackets you are looking for are more of an attacking racket.

Have you tested any of these rackets at the store by swinging it?

Maybe you should give it a go before deciding your purchase.

How about the newest nanoflare?

If you're around PJ area, you can drop by SS2 Titan badminton store which is owned by my friend smile.gif

Well, the seller claim it's a 'tax free' racquet, which sounds like a parallel import that explain of lower price, not sure make sense or not?

If me I won't take the risk, I know someone selling badminton stuffs told me before, for Yonex their profit margin is low, if the price is too low confirmed is counterfeit. You can check on other countries selling price, most are even more expensive than here after currency conversion. Most probably it's grade AAA that looks exactly like original, or from missing container tongue.gif

Hi guys, i want to ask recommendation for racket. Im playing for double and more to control type, not heavy smasher. I was thinking of buying Yonex DUORA 10 SP, Yonex DUORA Z-Strike, Yonex Astrox 99. Is it good or you guys can recommend for me.  biggrin.gif

You can try Arcsaber11 if you want. Quite known for double players and it is a balanced racket. If you not a heavy smasher, meaning you don't like heavy head racket, right? You can find at this website if you want. I normally buy racket at here (https://www.sunriseclick.com/) Yonex dealer.

There is no way you can get Yonex racquet anywhere in the world that is cheaper than in Malaysia. I've been checking out their price be it in Asia or Europe. Not need to mention US. Their price is the sky. Hahaha. Only place that's cheaper than Malaysia is Bangkok if you are looking for Victor. thumbup.gif

Unless you really like very stiff racquet. Else Arcsaber 11 won't suit.
Only buy from Sunrise if they have sale. Even during sale, their price are not really that cheap. Only competitive to those reputable shops price when they are not even in sale. thumbsup.gif

Just bought this pair of Apacs shoes SP-608F. The shoe sole at the heel's side is a bit high, you can easily twist your leg if you land on it after a jumping smash or when you chase the shuttlecock. Apacs is a very experienced badminton manufacturer, this shoe is quite disappointing besides it's nice appearance. Not recommended

I noticed Sports Direct is selling the Yonex Duora 77 and 88 at very cheap prices. RM210-220 respectively. Genuine??

p/s: Looking for a balanced racket, deciding between the Duora 7/77/88

P/s: Vsmash shop in Kuchai is selling legit yonex rackets? I notice they have quite a good range of DUORA rackets which I might get from them...

now all i need is a true head heavy racket, something similar to the yonex z force 2. looking at the gosen gravitas 8.0 for now.. hmm hmm

in case anyone wondering, both my apacs are strung with fleet powertech nano 80 @ 26lbs, my yosen bg80 @ 27lbs, mizuno bg65 @25lbs

i was thinking of 24lbs on the mizuno but decided to go for 25 because 24 would be too bouncy to my liking. will give impressions once i have more play time with it biggrin.gif

also if anyone has experience with gosens please do chip in!

I was considering an Arcsaber 10 as I love the white colour but opted for the Duora 7 instead due to it being slightly more balanced than the arcsaber. I think the arcsaber is stiffer too.

apologies for the late reply, however this is a fake and not even aaa grade as there are many errors with it. it can be visually confirmed as a fake by looking the cap as its not sporting the new energy cap.. as many has said.. if the deal is too good to be true... then most prob its a fake.

this is a real one for comparison

Hi guys , I’m looking for yonex badminton racquet . I saw sport direct selling at a affordable price , especially their yonex arcsaber 69 at rm 89 .

SportsDirect sells original racket.

The only difference is the model that Sports Direct carry are usually outdated models.

Hint - check what is the maximum tension for those rackets. newer Yonex Racket can go at least lbs.

Thanks!

Previously I use NS9900, I bought one BS11 Taiwan at JB (working there 2015) after recommended by a friend SSC Sports. Last year bought one BS12 China at Temerloh (working there 2018). I try to switch back Yonex but feel not same. Timing you hit shuttlecock sudah tak sama. BS fast swing

My friend bought it. I tried last week, the head is lighter than my AX99 Orange, both same specs 4U. The AX99 LCW is much easy to use, quite similar swing speed with AX88D (4U).

Arc11 warranty tension at 24lbs max only not 26lbs. Can string higher than that but the frame is ridiculously fragile and anything above 26lbs your frame/grommet will sink in no time. Not for high tension user..

How long is your SHB-65 alpha? Mine 1 year ++ still no open buaya, but base tread started wearing already and the grip not so good anymore. I'm thinking to get 65Z2, but the price not cheap. My experience on Asics Gel Rocket was not bad, also last me 1 to 2 years time, but recent Asics design is quite narrow and I only wear wider version of shoe. I prefer Yonex shoes' grip are better, I think it's same theory as good grip/performance tyres worn faster than normal tyres.

with that budget, i think can try Gel Blast but it's a little heavier although for me negligible. else, can look at Gel Blade.
i hear many ankle twisting case when wearing Rocket though.

i dont mind heavy.. as long as support and cushioning good. I'm not a ultra fast player anyway.. biggrin.gif I heard Gel Blade cushioning is not as good as Rocket, but a very much lighter shoe.. not for me i guess. I'll try to look up the blast. Thanks!

arcsabers still plagued by the grommet sinking problem?
astrox got such issue or not?

Use different set of grommet then problem solved, the original astrox grommet tak leh pakai, my 88S got very minor sinking mark after 3-4 times restring with original grommet, then ask shop help me change their grommet then now remains the same, no sign of getting more serious sink at all.... lost count how many string jobs already rolleyes.gif

My astrox 88d no such issue, I still believe sinking problem mostly depend on stringers, if they don't turn the grommet properly when restring, any rackets also will face the sinking problem.

Tried both. I prefer Force. More feel in smash. Btw Ultimax is $3 more expensive. I restring $2+ Force at Bangi shop. 😁

Surprise can last 4 games. I tried dimgrey but can’t last 1 game. Prefer RSL Ultimate. Maybe we are that bad of hitting. More of the hit went to the feather rather than the cock. 😁

You may want to try Kizuna. Cheaper on line. I tried the 63. Not much difference compared to Yonex’s. 😁

I don't really take too much concern on the hitting sound tongue.gif
Bangi shop charge $29 for restringing Force
They charge $32 for Ultimax
If you like nice sounding ones, 63mm will definitely sounds better than 66mm tongue.gif

Was my favorite string, but not long lasting. Feel good when power play.

Can anyone guide me or some heads up on buying a proper badminton shoes? I recently changed to Gel Rocket 8 and sprained my ankle twice ( left then right) in the span of 1.5 months, which I suspect my shoes could possibly be the culprit as I never have any issues with previous shoes.
