    We've all talked about which racket in our opinion suits us the best and which racket generally is the best for our own style of different shots.

    The racket which has been the worst for me is the Ti-3.

    Its not powerful in my opinion, awful balance...... can't never play with this racket, never have.......

    does anyone here have a worst racket?

    ps exclude the b-450 and b-550 and other steel rackets

    I don't own one, but I think you would have a hard time coming up with many positive things to say about the Iso 60 Light, except for its low price. I think it is lacking in virtually in all departments.

    I've only used high end Yonex rackets, so really I don't have a worst racket.

    Yea the steel rackets arent bad at all. Someone was using my rackey so i grabbed one of my friends. Very heavy, but i got a good clear. Worst racquet I have ever played with are those ones that come in a badminton + volleyball set.

    I would say those plastic badmitnon racquets they sell at the dollar store. They seem to flex a little too much when I attempt a smash :)

    i think the Ti-3 isn't that bad. it seems ok for me but just not good enough....... i know i'm a fussy person! hehehe..... but personally out of all the rackets you people mensioned, the Isometric 60 Light is the worst....

    Also, the Isometric 86 VF is hopeless to

    Well...I am still using Ti3. I think it is not the worst racket at all. I can say it is ok (avg power, weight, control...etc) with the reasonable price. I guess the worst racket I have played was the racket that used for physical education class in school.

    Ah, this brings back memory. I remember that I was using a racket for PE. Did a backhand (without touching anything else except the birdie - honest!), the racket snapped and wrapped. I had to apologize to the instructor profusely since it had become useless. :(
