Badminton is a very fast sport, and as such the rackets used are a lot lighter than in other sports such as tennis and squash.They generally consist of a handle, a shaft and a head. The whole length of the racket can be no greater than 68cm, and the width no greater than 23cm.The head of the racket is made up of a frame and the strings, which are usually made from nylon (though can actually be made from sheep or cow gut).
Things to look out for in badminton rackets are the material from which it is made. Some rackets are 'stiffer' than others, and some are more flexible. The weight is also particularly important. Some players will prefer a heavier racket. Some players will prefer a heavier racket, helping power shots, and others will prefer a lighter more manouverable racket making fast short movements much easier.
