So above we explained the list of top 10 badminton rackets for year 2020, now we will compare these rackets on different racket characteristics:

Comparison On The Basis Of Racket Swing Speed:

Racket Swing speed is simply the speed to racket in which it come in contact with shuttle. Fast swing speed depends on racket frame aerodynamic and how fast you can move your hand. Fast swing speed with proper rotation of body will offer better power.


Comparison On The Basis Of Racket Power:

Racket power is amount of power which player transfer from racket to shuttle, the more power transfer to shuttle the more opportunity payer will get win the point.

This chart shows the power of racket from 1s to 10th position.


Comparison On The Basis Of Racket Weight:

Racket weight is important parameters. It is considered as if player use lightweight racket then he or she need to compromise on racket power while for getting the pure power player need to select the racket with 85 to 89 gms with head heavy configuration.


Comparison On The Basis Of counter Attack:

Counter attack is the ability of player to counter the opponent shots. If a racket is head light configuration with better aerodynamic property so it will offer better swing speed which eventfully helps in better counter attack.
