Head Heavy Badminton Rackets

Head Heavy badminton rackets have a balance point more towards the head therefore giving you more momentum in your swing.  

The advantage of a head heavy racket is that it will be easier to hit smashes and clears as the momentum from the heavier head will increase your racket head speed, applying more force to the shuttle, resulting in more power.

A disadvantage is that the racket will be harder to handle.  The heavier head will be slower to swing, slowing down you reaction time which is important when playing defense.  It will also place more stress on your arm and shoulder, accumulating fatigue at a faster rate.
