If I am not mistaken this barnd is usually for tennis racquet but now they expand their products to badminton also. So far, Yeoh Kay Bin (MAS) and Tina Rasmusssen (DEN) is using this brand. I don't know which model but it is BABOLAT brand. Maybe they are other player using this brand too but I only know this two.

I just tried a Booster Lite last night with Ashaway strings at 25lbs and I really, really liked it!
The guy who owns it says it's not his 'go to' racket and he prefers it for doubles, but I played singles with it and after about 5 minutes of weirdness was wielding it like an axe!
It feels weird in the hand when you first pick it up...hard to describe.....it does feel short and a bit wooden....but after a few minutes when you get your timing back and dial in the sweet spot, it's a very versatile racket.
I'd say the power was a bit down on my Head M8k tour, but it transitions, drops....it was just so accurate too.
Anyway, I notice the Booster Lite is an old model, so what would the equivalent be in the new range? X-Feel Lite?

got a booster lite and booster ti. the booster range rackets is shorter than your typical yonex by about 1-2 cm.
my booster ti is stringed at 27lbs. its an old model but my go to racket coz its best for doubles. though u dont have the range of your normal racket, it does allow for a bit of a faster response.
yea it's like wielding an axe. not the best racket for net play but allows for quick cross courts and smashes if your opponent does a mistake.
thinking of getting the satellite nitro later

Yeah, same here. Trying to track one down is proving to be a bit tricky though.

Babolat badminton racquets not available in SG.

its available mainly in european countries. doubt it will be available in SEA for a few years.
i'm in nz so i can get it....however the price of the racket isnt very forgiving on the pocket...

I was told initially that Babolat badminton racquets might be available in SGP through the usual suspect but seems there was a change of mind in bringing them in.
Anyway, you can get it from HK, it isn't that expensive, costs around S$140.

I bought Babolat booster max last month, it really great racket.
I ditched my yonex AT700 since. Here in vietnam it cost around 70 USD. while my AT700 cost me 160 USD. Shud have bought 2 or 3 babolat instead.

Geez, if you can get one of the X-Feels for SGD140, that's the bargain of the century seeing I'm looking down the barrel of SGD340 if I buy them retail here in Australia. I've e-mailled e78 and I'll post their prices when I get them.
If anyone finds any prices on the X-Feels or Satelites, post em up here.
