    Default Suggest a racket setup

    I'm getting back into badminton after a few years off. My racket is a Yonex Ti-6 Long, 2UG4 strung with BG-65. Not sure what the current tension is.

    I'm looking for a capable replacement and have not been keeping up on all the equipment changes.

    Primarily a doubles player, play with a good mix of power and placement. Defence is a must.

    Anyone have racket suggestions, string type and tension. All comments welcome

    Thanks

    Ask mjstrings.ca to let you try a demo if you can.

    So I've settled on the NS9900, what about string and tension? We play primary with plastic
    Was thinking BG-80 @ 24

    Suggestions?

    bg80 is amazing at 25+
    24 may not bring out it's full potential

    i would also recommend trying bs11 if you want something a tad head-heavier than ns9900
