    First sight at Masai Kedai Bagus. I dont know whether is new brand or not. Made in Japan with a Ricky Subadja (former double Indon player) recommendation on advertising sheet with the racket. Mostly tension string up to 28lbs. Price between RM 199 - RM 299 depend on model i.e storm, lightning etc. Not bad looking. Anybody please clarify...

    i can tell you it's not a new brand.....i think it is among the first if it is not the first to use a badminton legend(if i may say so) name as a racket brand like Yang Yang.....HART is name after Rudy Hartono and it's allready been in the market for quite a while

    I can also confirm this is not a new brand. In Singapore, HART brand is known to be the low end of rackets (at least not many high end models are available). They are commonly seen being sold at very cheap price at budget or thrift shops.

    My friends bought this HART racket, don,t know the model. It's cost him Rm250. He told me that the shop owner recommend it to him, its weight around 75g, head heavy, oversize, with vibration damping, long shaft and can take 33lbs. I've tested his racket and surprisingly it seems that its quite powerfull. My friends defense seems much faster now and his smashes seems more powerfull than with his previous racket, Yonex carbonex 20. The first time he shows his racket to our badminton group, everybody was like 'huh', wth HART ??? hahahahaha.

    Actually, when HART first came out, it was supposedly endorsed by the legendary Rudy Hartono, and there is where the name HART came from.
    I am not sure Rudy is still endorsing that now though.

    today I went to Racquet World at pertama complex to search for a racquet, I asked shopper to recommend a racquet within budget RM200. He told me that if I'm not going for Yonex, then he will recommend HART Infinite Nano Flex 81 racquet(WT 81-83g, recommended tension: 28LBS) which price of RM180. If I go for Yonex, then he will recommend carbonex 21 SP, RM180 . Then he told me again, HART Infinite Nano Flex 81 racquet is better than Yonex carbonex 21 SP and is very good sale on all the HART racquet.:eek: Lastly, I also have bought the HART racquet. I have not tested it yet, can't wait to test it.:D

    From last month when I was there, RW hardly promoting Hart racket on their display hanger which I think about 80% of the whole brand. It s that means HART is the new "idol" know at KL? 5 racket sold on 2 hours? Wow!

    I've used Hart Nano 81 & 83

    First time, I used 81 with tension of 26. I feel so light but lobing, smashing, I felt much better than Carlton nano 9500. Because it's so light, i can control easily and not much pressure on my arm. Then, I bought 83. It's little bit more heavier but amazingly, when you smash on the sweet spot, you can hear "BOOM" sound. haha... good to try one. But still HART doesn't have top rackets, like YONEX Armotec 900 series. if you are close to pro, you fell little soft. that's what shop onwer told me.
