    I am wondering how much the difference is. I beleive that the maximum length a badminton racket can have is 670 mm. Also I think that my arc 10 is 665 mm long, and it is classified as long. Does anyone know of any rackets longer than 665 mm and closer to 670?

    Thanks

    The length of Arc 10 should be 674/675mm instead of 665mm. Its design is the long handle.

    Max. length by IBF is 680mm. 675 is the standard length for 'long' racquets.
