    Default A racket for my mum...

    Hi all,

    Its coming up to my mum's birthday and in recent months she has got into badminton, joined a club, will be getting coaching and I'm glad to say she really enjoys it. She has got progressively better and I think I want to buy her a new racket. Currently she has a nanospeed 100 which she enjoys but I still want to get her a new racket. I want to spend around £50 and I think the racket has to be flexible as she still struggles to generate powerful clears and her smashing isn't that great so I want to buy a racket which will aid her in these two areas (but it needs to be light). Anyone got any reccomendations? (doesn't have to be YY) I was looking at the Arcsaber 002 btw.

    Im using nanospeed 2000, its head light racket, and it has the smallest size grip, so if you add a karakal grip it will be even head lighter

    It has medium flex and cost £66, its over your price range but an extra 16 pound for a good racket

    ob done for a good racket.

    as an fyi:
    I have played with nanospeed 300 which is a ~£50 yonex racquet, and I have played with a head power helix (8000) and would take the Head over the low-end yonex any day of the week

    Yes I was thinking along these lines but she is quite arthritic so i'm not sure she would cope as well with a slightly head heavy racket.

    Maybe Arcsaber 3FL? I hear it's pretty good. Don't know the price though. But it's your mom...so don't be so cheap.

    3FL is £106 ish which is quite a lot for a person who plays once a week. If she starts playing more then maybe (maybe get my dad to chip in and do a joint present :P)
