    Well, the weight of the racquet does affect the feelings of swinging, and yes, I do care about the weight. (as long as it's not 1U; too heavy)

    About the grip, I don't care as long as it fits, the only thing I care about the grip is the color

    Gotta be blue

    hi my question is referring to same racquet ... but different U & G s.

    I noticed most of good players know which racquet that they prefer to use

    eg. A prefer MP-100 while B prefer Ti-10

    but I noticed, they do not even bother about the grip size (G s) and the weight (U s)

    as long as A play with MP-100, he is happy
    as long as B play with Ti-10, he is happy

    Ok, correct me if I am wrong. I assume the "good players" u referring are the ones got sponsors, not just a above average club level player.

    Then, maybe when the sponsor provide the rackets, they've already limited the range. Say, generally within a range of Us and Gs, which won't make too much a difference. For example, G2, G3...

    The rackets with extreme features, like 4U, U seems not very popular among sponsored rackets anyway. Therefore, within such a small range, maybe top players don't really need to "care" about selections, since they won't be that much different anyway.

    The weight isn't THAT much of a deal, especially when compared to balancing. If i'm looking for manuverable racquet that feels light in the head, a 2u racquet balanced way to the grip would be better than a 3u racquet balanced at like 30 some centimetres.

    And yea, I can definitely see how int'nl lvl players don't worry about marketing hype and catchphrases such as musclepower and titanium, but go with the racquets that feel the best to them. However, it can't be denied that musclepower really does affect string bed repulsion, and that ti threads can increase stiffness.

    As for my racket, its about 103 grams and feels good just that theres so many scratches on the head because of too many shuttle pick-ups (I'm still trying to master that without hitting the floor.)

    I think LB may be right.
    What if the sponser only give you 2U racquets? You can either take them or leave them, which you would you pick? (especially they are probably free)

    No, I don't think kameha2 is referring to ppl who have sponsers.

    Perhaps this is the way it is in Asia. I know of ppl who don't know sh*t (or don't care) about grip size, weight, etc but they sure are good. Well as ppl have said..... it's your skills that matters, not the racket.

    I agree. I don't know much about those U's and G's. But the skill is foremost the most needed factor in badminton.

    kameha,

    allow me to add in eventhough i am only a beginner

    personally i dont care about the U's and G's ... after 10-20 shots i guess we will get used to it.

    I agree with swijaya. My grandma bought me a racket last time and I started using it for practice and I was terrible (never felt that way with any racket) I had the thought of using a different racket but then I sticked to my new racket and eventually I got the hang of it. So mainly the problem is my attitude.
