    Lightbulb Advanced racquet for a beginner.

    I have played badminton occasionally or when someone invited me but recently I developed interest in playing badminton and I want to play it regularly. I do not own any racquet but I am planning to buy one before the month ends.

    Now, I am wondering to buy the Arc Saber 11 of my relative, who received it as a gift but prefers another line of racquets. Is it okay to use an advanced racquet if I am just a beginner?

    It is okay to use an advanced racket even if you're a beginner, but don't feel that the racket will make a very big difference in your game, it's more about learning technique an that's how you will improve!

    make sure the racket is real, as they got it as a gift!

    It's more than alrite, but I would suggest trying out the ArcS-11 on courts to gauge how it feels.

    The gd news is, being an even-balance racket with stiff (but not so stiff) shaft, it is suitable for beginners as a starting racket imo.

    It's ok to use the advanced racquet - won't do any harm.

    Usually, we recommend mid range racquets initially as people tend not to want to spend too much to get started. And then as they play more, they might like to buy a different racquet with some slightly different characteristics.

    A beginner can use any racket s/he wants, though if it was something very head heavy and stiff (cough, VTZF) s/he might have issues.

    I'd be more concerned over what kind of string tension is on the racket. Something really high might be hard on a beginner.

    For a beginner, ANY racket will do.

    SmashAndDash is right on the string tension.

    Too high n u will not have sufficient power to return the birdie. Too low n u will have little control of the birdie. To b on the safe side, beginners should b using string tension in the low 20s, somewhere between 20-23 lbs.
