Favourite racket colour?
- Or mixed

White always looks nice on rackets but not many high end frames use white in great quantities. Black can also look pretty sleek; actually, black is the main colour on the majority of the rackets I currently own and play with. I think this is purely coincidence but black does tend to look nice. I'm not a great fan of bright colours on rackets.

I buy mine based on price, but I would like a chrome style racquet, so that's probably silver on your list.

I like crazy colour mixes, but also LOVE a pure white racquet something arc10pg.

White almost always looks cheap (eg. any racket made by Babolat).
On the other hand, if it's done well, it can look really amazing (eg. Arc10PG).
Personally, I'm less bothered about color, and more interested in texture and finish.
I like sparkly paint; combinations of matt and gloss finish; pearlescent paints; chrome and hologram finish; fake wood finish (eg. RSL Laser 800) ; unpainted graphite; exposed woven carbon.
I'm also very much looking forward to the new Trinity Pro, which is going to be black and sparkly gold - a combination I've been wanting to do for a while

At least one of the Bravesword series uses small amounts of hologram type material on the frame. It would look pretty crap over a large area - same goes for chrome.
I'd love a glossy black racket with a design done in matt black. Or a glossy white racket with a design in matt white. And by design, I mean something like on the karakal tattoo rackets.
I also like retro designs. I remember a few years ago a ski manufacturer (one of the French ones, but I forget which) brought out a couple of new skis, using modern technology, but with the graphics from an old world cup ski they made decades earlier. It would be kind of cool if one of the badminton companies with a bit of heritage did the same with their rackets.
Another interesting ski was the Rossi Scratch, which was made to look "distressed" - like it had been burned or something, so you could see the materials inside. That would be pretty cool on a woven racket.
