The flexibility is divided between stiff, medium flex and flexible (Stiff ○○●○ Flexible). Do you have enough strength and technique, and do you want more control? Then you should choose a medium flex / stiff badminton racket. (The stiffer the racket, the quicker it will punish mistakes and the more power you have to draw from your technique and arm, but the advantage is more accuracy and control). If you do not have that much strength, you should look for a more flexible badminton racket. This will help you to develop speed in your strokes.
Info about of the balance of the rackets
The weight distribution is mainly determined by your style of play and is divided between head heavy, balanced and grip heavy. If you are a defensive badminton player, you will have to defend smashes more often and play short games at the net. Therefore, a headlight badminton racquet is an ideal addition to your playing style. Are you an offensive player and do you prefer to constantly attack your opponent, and they can only defend? Then a head heavy racket is ideal to support your offensive game even more. Of course, you can also choose the middle ground and then a balanced racket is the perfect choice.
Have you determined which flexibility and balance is best for your style of play? Select the weight class of your racket. Do you prefer a U6 racket (70-75 grams without strings) or a 3U racket (85-90 grams without strings)? Depending on your style of play, you can make the right selection here. If you play a lot at the net, if you play a lot of doubles, if you are prone to injuries or if you just want to be very maneuverable, a lighter racket is recommended. Less weight = more maneuverability.
If you are an offensive player, you play a lot in the backfield, and you are not injury-prone, it is better to select a heavier racket. More weight = more power. Determine your style of play and what you need help with during the game. The racket is and remains an extension of you as a badminton player.
