Besides the balance, flexibility and weight, the applied technologies determine which accents are emphasized in a badminton racket (offensive, defensive, speed, control etc). It is very important to make the right choice and to pay attention to your own qualities and what you want to achieve. If you keep this in mind, you will be unbeatable on the court and show your best game!
Why choose a medium flexible and balanced badminton racket?
Badminton rackets that have a medium flexible shaft and are balanced contain all the features that suit an all-around playing style. Players who prefer this type of racquet are active on the court, both defensively and offensively. So you can hit that powerful smash, but also short at the net, you are fast and agile. So the big advantage is that you get good support from your racquet in everything. Super nice if you play doubles and singles and don't have a specific playing style.
Choose an even balanced and medium flexible racket
Badminton rackets which are medium flexible and even balanced fully support your all-round playing style. These types of rackets allow you to play badminton both subtly, powerfully and agile.
Do not select an all-round badminton racket if you are looking for more specific support in your strokes. For example, more power in smashes or drives, which you get from the stiffer racquets (if you have a good technique). Or if you are looking for more maneuverability for the short game at the net or in the smash defense, then it is better to choose a headlight racket.

Info about flexibility badminton rackets
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 racket 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.
