    Hiya I was wondering what ever happened to Head rackets?

    I quite liked the Helix 5000 and now their £130 Head youtek Neon 8000 is like £55, which I'm interested in getting.

    So my question is what happened to Head, and has anyone tried head badminton rackets?

    They moved away from badminton. Their rackets had a really nice value for money but they never had a big breakthrough.

    Agree^
    Head had some good rackets and you could always find a good deal in the UK. However they 'quit badminton' so stocks wont be getting replaced.

    I used the metallix 8000 tour and power helix 8000 and enjoyed both.

    Same as what the people above have said I believe they have stopped producing badminton products. I borrowed a head metallix 10000 of a friend for a couple of weeks and it was lovely balance racket to use that felt very solid. I recommend trying them.
