I have a friend who's not serious about playing the sport, but loves to play it as a leisure sport. He has the urge for ultimate power, so trying to convince him the "proper" way of playing badminton is useless since all he wants out of badminton is knowing he has a superior smash. The problem he has right now is trying to figure out what would people consider the most powerful racquet to be, which can help generate the most power. He says he is willing to work on his arm, forearm muscles along the way, while learning to adapt to the racquet, so stiffness/head heaviness is not a problem for him I guess. I know I'll probably get lectured that badminton isn't all about the most powerful smash cause I know someone's gonna say it..lol...but someone try telling that to my friend since all he wants is power. I'm just letting it be and just trying to help him find a racquet that suits his needs.
