    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.

    arcsaber 3FL is 106 if I'm not wrong, so it is out of question

    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)
