welcome to BC...........
new member, new thread, same questions...........
1. weight - consist of 2U(90-95g), 3U(85-89g), 4U(80-85g)
2. shapes(head) - oval shape and iso head
3. flex(shaft) - flexi, medium flex, still, extra stiff (flex = more power generate from racket, less control, stiff = less power generates from racket, more control)
4. grip size - G3, G4, G5 (G3 bigger than G4 bigger than G5, G3>G4>G5) #base on Yonex code, may differ from other make.
for beginner, like you, go for 3U, iso head, medium flex and grip size to your suit. string Yonex BG-66 @ 22lbs

thats awsome seriously i suppose i am now a lil more literate on those info's. thanks again for the ans but here is another thing, if you look at the attached pic which is a Victor G 7500 VI, this is the racket i have been using for a while now. honestly i have been loving it.
the string snapped 1ce but got it restranged. but 1 thing i have been finiding hard is smashing. apart from that seriosuly i think its a funky looking cool and durable racket? whats you thought on that then???
also what is 22lbs?? i mean what is this related to, is it something to do with the string tension if so how does it works???
also wat do u think abt Challenger Ti 70?

22lbs shows how tight your strings are. If you're a novice, then it's a good tension for you. Also, a lot of these questions have been answered a while ago, so try a search, or look through the badmintoncentral faqs section.

hey,don get so confuse with so many weight,size,fexlible.....bla bla bla......
the most important is what game(single/double) u play the most? what is ur style(smash lover or drop shot lover)? and which racket feels good when u holding it(a special feeling about thats it! when u holding it)? other just for the spec info only.u cant buy a racket base on spec.cheap racket can be nice too if that suit ur style.the problem is base on string.string nice then u can play more comfortable.
