    Why no one wants to talk about this racket? Is it hard to find? Or it is too expensive?

    After reading the official site, the racket seems to have a lot good stuff in it.

    And I am thinking of getting one, can anyone point shops that sell it? Thanks.:)

    Hello,

    I'm from germany and Oliver is here a popular badmintonbrand. I know many players who play with Oliver or owned an Oliver Racket.
    First of all all Oliver rackets are produced in China. I got this info from Oliver Sport.
    An expensive racket produce in a country where Yonex only produce their very low end models? Most people will go for the japanese build ones.
    The range of rackets ist a little bit confuse. They produce for more products for recreational players than for professional players.
    Their range of high quality rackets isn't cheap compared to Yonex, Victor, Li-Ning, Babolat...
    The most asian people tend to stiff rackets. This is my speculation.
    The Oliver rackets don't match for many players.
    Their strings are very poor.
    Their feathers are ok. Not excellent but good.
    They have the eplon range. They have a good and own design and are decent models.
    Honestly most things in sports are image, advertising, sponsorships of the heroes. I think this is the problem why some brands are not famous.

    Well I'm not too sure about this but the Eurostar was a stiff - racket type which was good as a doubles racket, and perhaps single. I've only tried it once - its my coaches racket. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?

    I think every brand have his good rackets and have rackets that fits any player. But like 2 post before said. due advertising, sponsership and all other stuff some brands cant get their way through. I got some older version of Oliver and I think they are just as good as any other brand, but you need to find your racket. Atleast the prices of Olivers are good for me. for about 100 euro you got the high end of Oliver for yonex you pay around 150 euro's.

    Never heard about the eurostar before and yet i am living in europe :p

    I once owned the Oliver P800 Power. In terms of badminton-beginners, it was a decent attacking racket!

    sorry, i can not give a good comparison with common rackets. ask j4ckie! he is playing t50 and many li-ning, yonex and pandas.. i would say it is quite stiff but just not too much for my liking.
