    Ah but you don't realize both are just as important.

    Or have you conveniently overlooked my original post above re 4U head light rackets? You can generate lots of speed with them, but the smashes won't be as fast because there is less mass.

    Btw if F=ma as you state, then how is a difference in speed a greater effect than a proportional difference in mass. It is a directly linear relationship.

    All I can say is that from personal experience, head heavier, stiffer rackets have certainly generated more power for me personally. And that's not something I concocted in my head. Something noted by my opponents as well. If it was just about speed, my BS10 would offer more power than my MX80, but as it happens it's the other way around.

    But as mentioned, it's all personal to the player. Not everyone is going to get more power out of a stiffer or head heavier racket.
    it's not just about speed nor it is just about the mass
    it's either both ! it's accelerate enough mass to the highest speed

    Aargh!
    Why does understanding badminton equipment have to be so complex?
    I'm sure the racket manufacturers/companies are having a jolly good time every year coming out with the newest improved rackets for us to buy!

    Very good one! :thumbsup

    So this equation is more appropriate than F=ma.
    Thus speed has a greater effect on kinetic energy than mass.

    • so what that tells you ?
    • head heavy = bigger mass
    • conclusion : head heavy racket does not always provide greater power or higher shuttle speed
    • now it's only stiffness left to study

    well, reality is not so straightforward

    4u headlight rackets have great speed, but horribly slow smashes

    Which probably means (most) humans can't swing it fast enough (or don't because it swings so easy already)

    guys. have you guys missed the most important part of the F=ma equation?

    it is not m, it is not a.

    it is F. F means how much force YOU have.

    when you have large F, then 1/2 mv^2 will be maximized.

    *now back to regular scheduled programming....*

    dang!

    this means that i'll have to go and buy a whole bunch of rackets with various combinations of head heavy vs balanced, stiff vs. medium, power vs speed cross section!

    only then will i know what will work best for me!

    this is going to be an expensive hobby!

    FYI if you doubt my skill or ability to generate power from stiff and head heavy racket
    here's my profile
    i'm not too old to be too weak
    and not too young to be lack of experience
    i'm above 30 and under 40
    been playing badminton for more then 20 years now
    69 kg 175 cm (quite athletic build)
    i'll be happy to be the guinea pig
    btw, this guy is a regular in our courts and one of those with powerful smashes.

    wow thanks very much man
    are you sure you're in the right position?
    I'll be happy to swap with you since you're also a big smasher
    I'll lend the rackets (SW37, SW35, MX80) and let you do the smash while I defend using my BS10

    @gendruw is an example of a big bomber with a medium stiff and even balanced rackets
    he uses Carlton Power Blade 9902

    who is your friend???
    which one??? there are 30 ~ 40 people in our group (gendruw is the Leader)
    and we use 4 courts
    it's difficult to know everyone there because we are busy playing
    so no time to talk with each other
