To make the choice easier for you, we already give an explanation about the badminton rackets, the stringing of badminton rackets and badminton shoes. We notice that our customers often have questions about these products.
Badminton rackets: Two things are important with badminton rackets, namely the flexibility of the shaft and the balance point. Below we will explain these differences:
• Flexibility: The more flexible the shaft, the easier it is to get the shuttle further away. When the shaft is more stiff, you have a little more control. The (female) players who naturally have less power, better opt for a somewhat more flexible racket.
• Balance Point: There are three balance points, namely Head Heavy, Even Balanced and Head Light.
o With head heavy rackets, the balance point is slightly more in the top, which gives you more smash power. Mainly suitable for the attacking player.
o Even balanced rackets are more all-round and very suitable for many players.
o With head light rackets, the balance point is slightly more towards the grip, so that you can move the racket faster. Mainly suitable for the defensive player.
• Novice player: For novice players, we recommend to purchase an all-round racket with a (medium) flexible shaft. This combination is perfect for learning to play the game of badminton. A racket with a good price / quality ratio is the RSL Hammer Z3.
Stringing of badminton racket: The racket will always be strung according to your wishes. Badmintonplanet uses an electric stringing machine, so you get what you ask for. You can choose the string yourself. Badmintonplanet has a good string for every player. Thinner strings for extra power and control or thicker strings for better durability. The recommended stringing tension for nylon shuttles is 10 kg and for feather shuttles 11 kg.
Badminton shoes: We often get the question about the size of badminton shoes. We recommend to order badminton shoes at least one size bigger than the "normal" shoe size, because badminton shoes often are smaller. However, this differs per brand, because shoes from FZ Forza are usually even smaller. In badminton shoes, cushioning, support / stability and weight are important characteristics. If you have a question about this, we would like to ask you to contact our customer service.
