    Default Which type of racket you use for playing singles and playing doubles ?

    Singles : I usually prefer medium stiff head heavy racket with high aerodynamics such as BS11 for a game of singles as most of the time I am reaching the shuttle from behind and to able to wield a user friendly racket but with slight weight in head is an advantage for me for sudden wrist acceleration or smashes which don't throw me off court .

    Doubles : I am always in position and can afford to put my all in smashes so I prefer a stiff slight head heavy racket such as ARC11 . I find slight head good for back and also for drives with net also manageable .

    Others ?

    Whatever I have in my bag that isn't broken
    All of them head light, medium flex. Except for that one wooden racket.
    Ok it may help to clarify that I only use low-mid end rackets and play badminton mostly for fun. I go for style points, not rally points

    For doubles I use a even balance racket (BS10) if it's level doubles. For wellness games against weaker players I choose something headheavier (MX80 or SW35). For singles I play with SW35 and BS10. MX80 makes me too tired for singles. Played yesterday a match with it. It's damn accurate, but it don't suit my type of singles game like my other rackets.

    If you are that particular which is good actually the you must only play one of singles or doubles. In my opinion changing racket as well as game is bad if I think in that way. For fun you can do anything
