choosing a racket for beginer
Hi everbody I am an average player getting back to the field after 15 years looking for yonex racket aroung $50 to $70 what do you recommend.

lower end musclepowers or carbonexes. youre better off getting a nice ($100+) racquet. There arent very many good options for under $100.
personally i like the carbonex 8600light

I agree with Powerboy, perhaps try a Carlton Powerblade Superlite, that should be jsut slightly over your budget, if not within.

Get a Armortec 700 or 800de or that MP 100, but these might be way over your budget. The lower end MPs are not very good.

armortec 800 is WAY more than $50-70.
I would recomend a oval head racquet for beginners, at least for the first year or two before getting an iso head. this is better to establish hitting the sweetspot and punish you more for making offcenter/bad shots xD
Carbonex all the way!

I don't really understand the rationale behind the idea of starting off with oval then switching to iso as you get better. Wouldn't that make your learning curve even longer?
Let's say I had a clone and both of us started playing badminton at the same time. I start with an iso racquet while my clone starts with an oval one with the exact the same characteristics. At some point in time, both of us get good enough that we can hit the sweetspot consistently. Now my clone switches to iso, and he'd need some time adapting to it. Once he adapts to iso, he won't be any better hitting the sweetspot than me, but he needed extra time to get to the point I'm at.
I understand it would be ideal to learn to use both types, but what's the point of learning to use oval for someone who intends to only use iso. You'd only be punishing your self needlessly.

youre under the imrpession that iso is always better than oval, thats not true. In an oval, when you hit the sweetspot exactly, there is much more power then hitting the (much larger) sweetspot in an iso. Therefore, if you learn to use an oval first, you'll hit the exact center of an iso more often, reducing the chance of bad quality shots. Even if you only intend to ever hit with an iso, learning to use oval first is good because that way, you can apreciate hitting the exact sweetspot more.
also you said that an oval player would need time to adapt to an iso racquet. This was not true for me (might be for others) as i immediately picked up an iso racquet after playing oval for 3 years.

I guess its whatever racquet headshape that fits you. I grew up with iso, I love iso. But I do agree that beginning with a oval does not seem to help shorten the learning curve, but why must we end up in oval?.. is that the ultimate?
