    The Thai National team uses a training racket made by Tailai (150gm) carbon...
    Does anyone know where I can contact the manufacturer???
    All my searches turn up empty.

    I think you can just use a simple old style wooden rackets which would cost you very little and serve the same purpose. I think this is as effective when you do your shadows etc

    Sorry, I do not recall seeing the brand. :(

    agreed, use an older, or more affordable steel racquet.

    The 160g training raquet I have is crumbling from the inside out, it rattles more and more after each practice now :crying:

    I ended up ordering a kimoni 150g training racquet from puppy sports in HK, only $49USD, still a far cry from $10 for a steel racquet :p
    I may end up buying some lead tape and experiment with that on my steel racquet, since I am just trying to increase overall racquet weight, not just head weight.

    Anywho... best of luck to you.

    TaiLai is a good shuttlecock brand. The factory is in Guangdong Province.

    Just happens to be the racket Thai team uses and thought it might help to find Tailai if it is made in Thailand.
    Can you help or are you just bored? Thanks
