    Default Head Youtek Badminton Rackets seem promising!

    Head Youtek Raptor:

    Head Youtek Mojo:
    http://www.sportchek.ca/product/inde...uctId=62716936

    I was walking around the mall picking up my corsage and walk into a retail store. The retail store had your typical high end Yonex frames but what intrigued me were the Head frames. The Mojo was quite interesting because it had the same head shape as the Brave Swords, fully made of H.M Graphite and uses Heads technology, also labeled as "stiff".

    Perhaps I should pick the Mojo up soon, give it a try as it seems good for the price.

    I think they have, its a shame as they made decent rackets, I still have a Head Youtek Power Helix 7000 and it is a cracking head light racket.

    Kindest regards,

    How could one not buy a racket called Mojo, given the chance?

    I think it was a retailer requested racket. It was, for some reason engineered in Canada, so I can assume the retailer developed the racket under the Head name. It seems quite promising and a great buy under $110 xD

    I wouldn't - it'd remind me of those detestable Austin Powers films.

    Yes, well... we Canadians sincerely apologize for Mike Myers and that drivel. (And for Jim Carey, too)
    @funkdrummer : Do give a review if you buy one of those Head rackets.

    It seems that Sportchek licensed the Head brand for badminton, which means they can start producing and releasing Head badminton rackets.

    They are probably repaints of Diadora rackets or something.
