    I don't know if you've noticed that the seller can't spell badminton?

    These are old rackets that aren't worth much more than 10$ each.

    If you want a decent racket, go to your local sports store and buy a middle range Yonex/Victor racket. If you want good rackets at low price, you can look for APACS rackets or similar brands.

    I have no clue of what brands are available in the UK, but there are probably other brands you could try too.

    You should stay away from eBay non-store sellers because they are mainly selling the crappy rackets they used in high school and think they are amazing because they compared them to the other kids' 1$ rackets. You should also stay away from most eBay store sellers because what they sell is mostly fake. Try Squash_Mart if you wanna buy from eBay.

    A decent mid range racket will usually cost around 50$ and high end rackets will go from 150$ to 250$.

    In the UK you can add Carlton to the list of notable brands.
