Which racket is better at rear court clears? Stiff or flexible rackets?
Dear all, what type of racket would give me an edge at clearing from the rear court? Would a racket with a stiffer shaft be better?
Pls share. Thanks!

Stiffness depends on how you swing. Maybe a flex racket will suit you better or a stiff one. But if you have problems with clearing back to back, don't buy a racket. Work on your technique.

Definitely flexier rackets are more user friendly, ie easier to generate power consistently and repeatedly, even if you have good technique. Otherwise you'll see all pro players using MX80 and VTZF.

To most people, the most expensive ones they can afford.

if everything else is constant, then a racket with a flexible shaft will make it easier to get the shuttle from one end to another.

This is my sharing.
yy mp10 head light and flex - no power and cant clear.
Yy ns990 head heavy and extra stiff. - need to push little hard for clear.
Yy ti10 even balance and stiff - same as ns990.
Yy vt70 head heavy and mid - little bit better than ns990 for clear.
Yy vt80 head heavy and stiff - much better than vt70 and effordless.
Apac lethal 12 even balance and flex. - same as ti10.
So, hi end racket may help for clear ... is that answer you..

Well no matter what racket you use, if your arm strength is not good enough, it still won't work.

for myself. if its a stubborn defensive player over the side and i need to rally with clears, my at900p, any day.

there are some people i know, just from a wrist snap is able to send the shuttle from base to base with a nice loud "pop" sound(ignoring the fact that they have been playing for decades though)
it still boils down the combination of one's wrist/forearm strength, and one's ability to generate fast arm swings.
if one has a weaker forearm, wrist, then most of the power generation comes from the fast arm swing, a flexible racquet will bend during the swing and allow for a good transfer of power. giving this person an extra stiff racquet will cause problems as there's still a limit to how fast most people can swing.

Please read the Thread heading. We are not talking about arm strength or how to generating power. With everything being equal, which racket is better at clearing. Please read post #3 and # 5.
