    Default badminton racket sound?

    ive only had 2 rackets, both strung at 22 pounds. When i see people playing around the court, they always makes this big "pop" sound that i just cant generate. my smash is one of the fastest at my club, but i just can't make that cool sound. my smashes are still fast and strong how come?

    Some racket strings are developed for exaggerating the "Hitting Sound". If my memory serves right, Yonex BG85 has more of the Hitting Sound than Repulsion.
    Also the racket face must be open fully while hitting the shuttlecock.

    "I< "
    In the above figure, I is the racket face and < is the shuttle cock.
    For Hitting sound to be at the maximum,
    Shuttle cock must touch the centre (sweetspot) of the racket face at 90 degrees.

    where 90 degrees is the angle between the axis of the shuttle cock and the racket face.

    or maybe they put plastic adhesive tape on their racket head particularly on the stringbed...

    in my opinion, BG65Ti & BG68Ti have nice sound too. but these are not the best strings around.

    either damaged or mis-hit the frame.

    ok, some readings regarding to make booooooooming sound;
    1. explosive string
    2. technique
    3. bang sound?
    4. shuttlecock used?
    5. from string?
    6. string again?
    7. now, listen to some musics

    It's hitting the sweetspot with no slice and lots of force...if you get that right, then you'll get the sound. Practise with clears to get the sounds, then adopt the same technique for smashes to get the big boom.

    Learning to do the whip will make that sound; Using your wrist to hit the shuttle by swinging the racquet really fast without using too much arm. Hitting it dead on is also a factor. If you use a lot of arm, there wont be much of a pop or there will be but the wrist has more potential at making that sound. Mainly the pop comes from using the wrist and hitting the right spot.

    yup these are my favorite 2 strings.

    its not only down to equipment though. I remember i used to have really strong strokes and couldn't produce the pop and i used bg65 strung to 26lbs. Then one of the national coaches when i made the squad adjusted my technique slightly and it made all the difference. Not only did i get the sound but my shots were more accurate and a lot sharper and faster.

    So it may come down to a slight difference in technique as well.

    Different strings make different sounds, but it is easy to recognize the sound of a well hit shuttle. Some strings make "booms", others "pang", "pow". As for if you can't make a good sound but still a powerful shot, that is totally normal, the hit was bad but your hitting strenght totally compensates it, that's all.

    It might actually be the racket itself. My friend has a racket that makes a slicing sound during a smash like when a sword cuts something or deflect s something.
