    Hey everyone!

    Wanted your input on old badminton rackets and whether you guys have thought of making the switch to newer models. I have a Z Strike right now but I'm kind of feeling a Arcsaber 8DX since it was a childhood racket I always wanted. Anyone still using the old tech?

    I'm an old soul at heart even though I'm not that old. I like to using rackets that I'm familiar with from the 70 - 90s. In my bag would be Yonex B-8000 Alumina Hy-power, a Cab 7 and Cab 8, sometimes a woodie like an Aeroplane 515 or Grays Superlite. They just feel so different from the current technology rackets and since I'm only playing socially these rackets work just fine.
