    Default Y-joint

    I got this racket tonight and the storekeeper said that the Y-joint (see the picture) would has better control than T-joint.

    Anybody has experience on it?? In fact that this racket's technology is 16 years before and I have seem somebody using this racket in All England Open when I was small.

    hard to answer.
    1. control is a word that is not too well define in general
    2. relative to which racquet?

    I have cut the string and hang it up, so I would have no chance to test it.

    In tennis, Y-joint would provide less torique hit, so the shopkeep claim that Y-joint will have better control.

    But I think there is something different in badminton world, so the Y-joint is not popular in badminton.

    The weight is only 2U, the head is not heavy.

    I have seem the similar design used in All England Open for more than 16 years. But in fact that it is quite fresh for me. If I can get another one, I must try it.
