    Default Wooden-frame badminton racquet brands

    Hi! I was just wondering which brands were considered as respected wooden-frame badminton racquet makers?

    Thanks!

    I think all of them no longer in this line of business

    However, the popular brands I call still recall are:

    1/ aeroplane from china
    2/ Dunlop from England
    3/ yoneyama (yonex or yy) from japan

    yy is probably the most innovative of all,

    Fusing a layer of carbon into the wooden frame

    and they later also introduced the carbon shaft rackets.

    So much I can recall even though I never play with them

    Also,it's probably highly unlikely, but do stores still carry these rackets in large cities? Or would I have to stumble across them on the internet?

    Stores would definitely not store wooden rackets anymore. Best to check auction sites. Good luck!

    Hi.
    I would like to add -
    1. Slazenger
    2. Silver Grays/ Grays
    3. Kawasaki
    as I came across as well as played with them during the 70s. Of course they are already out of production since then and you'll be hard pressed to come across one in good, usable condition.

    Hi Cobalt.
    These look interesting and I would be interested to get a couple. I've checked their website but it looks like they may not ship to Singapore where I am. Wondering if you have any suggestions that may help me get my hands on these?

    I checked the website but cold not find that they will not ship to Singapore. Take a look at this link:
    http://www.manufactum.com/Kategorie/...onditions.html
    it mentions:
    For delivieries made to EU member countries the currently valid VAT will be charged.
    For deliveries made to non-EU member countries the amount of VAT included in our prices is subtracted.
    However, the price increases by the amount of the corresponding import sales tax for your country. The exact amount of the customs duty depends on your country's legal regulations and the individual product.
    You will receive a certificate of origin printed on the invoice. We will not always be able to avoid longer delivery times. In such cases, the order can also be carried out in partial shipments.
    At the bottom of that page you could also select if you wish to deal with any of the 4 countries they are based in. And maybe you should send them an email first...
    info@manufactum.com

    Hope this helps...

    Hi Cobalt.
    Many thanks for the info...I'll try emailing them and see if I get a response.
    I would be v. keen to try as bamboo has a great characteristic of flexibility and strength. I think it would work well with a whip-like motion, ie: using a lot more of the wrist and more importantly less of the shoulder, of which I have an old injury. The other advantage I can see in relation to that would be there's less movement of the body during the execution of a stroke (more wrist, less arm swing) and would disguise your strokes better imho.

    I hope you are successful! Let us know how it goes for you!
    Bamboo is a great material, no doubt, but I have some concerns about how well it will play as a badminton racquet. Traditionally, the good badminton racquets were made of ash, and some of willow; they actually have the whippy characteristics you are seeking. Ths is the reason why willow has always been and still is, the wood of choice for cricket bats. The bamboo racquets may very well end up just a great collectibles, but if I were you, I would not place too much hope in it being a solution to your problem.

    You may want to look at some headlight of evenly-balanced racquets that are moderately flexible, or have the whippy characteristic you are looking for. I woudl recommend the Trinity2 or the Precision from Panda Power, or maybe even the Arc7.

    Hope this helps...
