Even Balanced Badminton Rackets

Posted by Yumo Pro Shop on

Even balanced rackets have a balance point that is more or less near the middle of the racket making it all-rounded and well suited for most players. The advantage of an even balanced racket is that it is suited for a wide range of shots and play-style.  The disadvantage is that while it is all-rounded, it does not excel in any particular aspect.   Popular Even Balanced Rackets: Arcsaber 11Arcsaber FDArcsaber FBArcsaber 6FLNanoray 800 (slight head heavy)Duora 10 (slight head heavy)Voltric 70 E-tuneVoltric 8 E-tuneVoltric 7Bravesword 12Bravesword 9NJetspeed 10 (slight head light)Hypernano X 800Meteor X 90
