    Hi Queen, and welcome to the forums!

    Choosing a racket is rather hard, especially if you've never really read much about it, or tried some rackets out. If you are a beginner a flexier racket is suggestable, but other than that we can't help you much...

    and just to add, with badmintonrackets there's no such thing as "better"..just 'different' ( or "special")

    i have actuelly read alot, but i didnt understand!! i have always got my rackets and never bought them, and that is why i dont understand so much in them. any way, can u answer me what do they mean when they say stiff ? is it when the string is so tight and when the smatch is very hard ? or it is more like when u can do better net play? and why i dont see a big different in the weight of the racket!! By the way where do u play ? have u been in a badminton school a broad?

    having a stiff racquet is not reccommended if ur not ready for it. it will take 2 much strength trying 2 flex the shaft and could end up damage ur wrist. same with strings, too high tension could also result in injuries. a novice to intermediate player should be using a flexable racquet until they are ready

    having tighter strings have a higher potential of smashing power, but only if you can flex the stringbed which would require direct sweetspot hits, you need to be very advanced to do this every shot, so no tighter strings does not make you smash harder unless your pro. if you just started, start at the lower end, high end racquets are harder to use if you have just started.

    You might want to start with a racket which is moderate flex. An MP88 would be a racket to try to see if you want a racket that is more flexable or stiffer.

    Default 9000...

    Hallo Queen!

    The best price for NS 9000 among other internet shops or regular sport shops in Basel (Switzerland) is around 149 Euro.
    There are 2 different rackets (NS 9000 S and NS 9000 X)
    S= Stiff
    X= Extra Stiff

    You can surf below site:
