    In the order in which you think is fastest, which three rackets do you think are the fastest in the world. Rackets fast enough that if you had the speed and technique nothing could stop you from returning anything that comes your way on the badminton court.

    1. NF700
    2. 88S
    3. Jetspeed S 12 ii

    These three are just as an example, I don't know which are the fastest.

    There hasn't been any ground-breaking tech advancements thus people keep recommending the same rackets. Same goes with strings.

    One contender for the fastest racket has to be the Apac Feather Weight 55.

    8u racket which is the world's lightest badminton racket (at least according to Apacs themselves) outspeeding any racket mentoined above at ease.

    But pretty much any 6u or 7u will outspeed a 3u or 4u racket...

    not sure why one makes super light racket & even try to makes what already light to become even more light.
    We need weight & speed to create momentum. Pretty sure at some point, when you use light racket & then use even more light racket, you wont swing any faster so telling it will be faster are big question to me.
    I think 3U-4U are the most common weight for us average human. 5U is still acceptable but 8U.... I cant imagine anyone so weak that even unable to handle 5U racket so they need 8U racket.

    Generally the lighter the racket the easier/faster it will be to maneuver, wasn't the latter the topic of this thread?

    Wouldn't use anything lighter than 4u either but if you are talking about the fastest rackets it would be wrong not to talk about the super light ones.

    Seems there is a market for these though. I know that some of our club's mixed doubles ladies use rackets around the 6u category (but doesn't give them any chance at all once they are stuck in the rear court).

    When it comes to professionals Li Junhui, arguably on of the most dangerous rear court players over the last few years, has been using the N7 II Light which comes at 75-79g (or a reapint as many on this forum were suspecting).

    But some users here and over on the badminton subreddit have been looking for super light rackets 5u and upwards due to fatigueing quickly when using 3u or 4u, so why not if it works out for them.

    Hello

    I recently bought Carlton Ultralite 7.6 (claimed 73 gms). Just when I started getting the hang of it... it broke at 3 places in a clash. (Within 1 week of purchase)

    Thanks.

    Light rackets usually are less sturdy and tend to break easier, espc during clashes...

    Any lightweight short racket for children will be faster to maneuver than any regular racket.
