    Default What happened to Head Badminton Rackets?

    Hiya I was wondering what ever happened to Head rackets?

    I quite liked the Helix 5000 and now their 130 Head youtek Neon 8000 is like 55, which I'm interested in getting.

    So my question is what happened to Head, and has anyone tried head badminton rackets?

    They moved away from badminton. Their rackets had a really nice value for money but they never had a big breakthrough.

    Agree^
    Head had some good rackets and you could always find a good deal in the UK. However they 'quit badminton' so stocks wont be getting replaced.

    I used the metallix 8000 tour and power helix 8000 and enjoyed both.

    Same as what the people above have said I believe they have stopped producing badminton products. I borrowed a head metallix 10000 of a friend for a couple of weeks and it was lovely balance racket to use that felt very solid. I recommend trying them.
