    Default WTB: Racket suitable for beginner (Auckland NZ)

    I have a friend who is just starting badminton, not sure if hes fully commited yet, so does anyone have a decent racket? ISO head, hidden T-joint, not too stiff, hopefully well under NZ$100?

    Thanks.

    For a beginner, i think a clone would do the job just fine. Try finding "clone brands" like apacs. They have a wide variety of clones, including the lastest arc saber 7, which is edge saber7!

    I agree, clones would be good. But its hard to find clones or any other cheap decent rackets in NZ...

    Low end isometrics are the best suitet racquets for beginners, as far as yonex is conserned. They are cheap and very durable.

    Yeah but Muscle Power 21s are low end Yonex rackets. They are cheap. Not too sure about how durable they are though. Not got one.

    After a search i found that the mp21 is at an average 10 more expensive than the most expensive iso racquet(iso65lt). Again, waste of money.

    Well , It's only 10 of a difference and it is a good racket for a beginner but I hear what you are saying.
