Although brands like Yonex, Carlton, and Prince commands attention in badminton, starters and novices need not purchase them yet. As much as I believe that better rackets give a player the advantage, aside from the cool factor it brings, expensive gears are no use if you don’t have the basics seared in your brains.
However, for newbies who wants to own a decent badminton racket, there are many low-priced names in the market. Respectable? Yes. Popular? Not so. But even though you may not sport the latest racket, these sets of metal gear will definitely make your game solid.
