    Looked at som tennis rackets using Zylon 360:
    Zylon has been of interest in the airforce industry due to it being stronger/lighter than Kevlar :) (its a polymer material).

    I sense the Nano-technovolgy is just in its infancy so far for badminton-rackets..

    As far as I know, Zylon has been used for a while by Babolat in their tennis line-up

    Yes I know, the quote on top is from Babolats web :)

    Sounds like an interesting material for badminton.. But woven Nano would perhaps be even better :)

    I don't think we'll have the technology to weave nanotubes for a long time. :p
