    I'm getting back into badminton after a few years off. My racket is a Yonex Ti-6 Long, 2UG4 strung with BG-65. Not sure what the current tension is.

    I'm looking for a capable replacement and have not been keeping up on all the equipment changes.

    Primarily a doubles player, play with a good mix of power and placement. Defence is a must.

    Anyone have racket suggestions, string type and tension. All comments welcome

    Thanks

    So I've settled on the NS9900, what about string and tension? We play primary with plastic
    Was thinking BG-80 @ 24

    Suggestions?

    bg80 is amazing at 25+
    24 may not bring out it's full potential

    i would also recommend trying bs11 if you want something a tad head-heavier than ns9900
