    I don't, for one i'll end up chipping the paint off the racket - bad if i want to sell it on. Plus fingers came long before the racket, its ok if you can do it every time but there's nothing more daft than chasing a shuttle around the court.

    You're scraping paint on the ground, you will inevitably get several tiny scratches at least which will build up.

    Although there are some less flexible players who play the game who find using the racquet as a shuttle 'picking up tool' very useful!

    Such a "meh" topic can be so amusing reading people's reason why they dont pick up shuttle with a racquet because it might scratch. In regard a racquet is a racquet whether the paint is there, don't judge it but its cover

    True but how many rackets are being sold on here with big paint chips for much much less than their original price, but a lot are being sold for near their price because they are good cosmetically.

    Probably not a bad idea to sell if you bought it at $80 and sell it at $350! Makes financial sense, there are rackets for hand-me-downs and there are those that are worth their weight in gold!

    Picking shuttles will eventually scrape the paint eventually no matter how careful we are; the degree of the scrape is what matters!

    big paint chips on the frame do not typically come from picking up shuttles off the ground... they are the results of mishits or clashes

    i use my racquet to pick up shuttles off the floor and it doesnt even touch the floor most of the time. Im usually more worried that doing this would fray the strings on the outside of the frame.

    virtually EVERYONE i know pick up shuttle with their rackets.

    the degree of success however, is another matter...

    life is too short to worry about small matters like tiny microscopic scratches on racket frames.

    Scrapes and chips does diminish a ''CLASSIC'' racket for it's resale value!

    Perhaps crappy players play crap since they've hone their skills on picking shuttles superbly instead of honing their playing skills while good players love their rackets comparatively speaking?

    However, generally speaking the majority of players do pick the shuttles w/ their kit.

    i pick it up with my racket. I've never had a major paint scuff from picking it up with my racket.
    In fact, no one should suffer from a big paint chip, unless they literally scoop the ground along with the shuttle...
    of course small paint chips are inevitable, however i dont buy my racket to sell, i buy it to 'USE', so i pick up the shuttle with my racket.
    some might say selling is inevitable as well because of whatever reasons. But small, superficial paint chip wont deduct THAT much price anyway.
