    Just be safe and don't buy it . The way it is stringed though, it seems like a badminton racket to me... I'm no pro at squash nor badminton so i can definately be wrong

    There's no boubt about it, thats a Squash Racket. The shaft and sheer size is too big to swing in the way you do in Badminton. It may not look like the current squash rackets but that is an old racket. So don't buy it unless you want to use it to strengthen your arm for badminton sots.

    I'm pretty sure it's a badminton racket. For one thing the string looks too narrow for a squash racket.I don't think squash rackets are that long either. I really doubt the seller would confuse a badminton racket with a squash racket, the weight difference is massive. Also I have seen wilson badminton rackets with that type of shape before.

    I think it is a badminton racquet ,for the shaft will be too slim for a squash racket ,and I guess it has another name "water-drop racquet" .

    The racket is a badminton racket. As other has said, Wilson has badminton rackets which looks like squash rackets i.e the Sting series. Well actually I think this racket actually belongs to the Sting Classic series.

    Scroll down this website (it is in Jap unfortunately and you need a translator if u dunno Jap). You can find the section on it
