Yes, I am a newbie to badminton, but I believe I have improved to a certain level because I have been doing research on badminton and have been practising often (four times a week). So can someone help me to how to execute a jump smash? Also I want to ask what kind of racket is suited for me? I have a techno racket, which I believe is crap, it is a tec9.5. I am planning to buy a racket in Hong Kong. I also have used other rackets, just to use it because it is lighter than my racket a lot, so I believe that I should get a lighter racket because I have been using a heavy racket. Any suggestions would be great!
