    Default Coming back to badminton recommendations

    Hi all,
    After not playing badminton for around 2 years I am planning on getting back in to the game and joining a club however I am not sure on which racket to purchase. Previously, I seemed to suit lighter rackets but I am only willing to spend around 70 to start with until I feel I am reaching higher levels.

    I look forward to what you have to say

    Thanks,
    Josh.

    IMHO - depending on where you're buying, you can get a good Muscle Power or Carbonex for that price. If you want something more advance, be ready to spend double..

    if you don't mind a little bit head heavy racket, I would suggest apacs lethal 70 which is on discount right now..
    slightly head heavy, and also stiff

    this rackets are designed by one of the BC members.
    they are on par, if not better than most of the top brands and half the price.

    give them a try;

    I quite like the look of the stats of the Arcsaber 008, I'm just waiting for a reply to an email I sent to a local league asking if there are any places at some local clubs. Then it can be all go

    I probably would be interested if one of the clubs I've emailed had replied. Surely it can't be so hard to find somewhere local to play!
