Current Best Rackets 2020

Yonex Arcsaber 11

Once the choice of the backhand master and badminton legend Taufik Hidayat. I play this one myself and I can see why Taufik chose the Arcsaber 11. It has a nice weight that makes it easy to counter-attack. But you still have enough power for smashing. And it feels like my backhand is actually getting a little bit further. Although not nearly as far as Taufiks.

  • Grip Size: G4
  • Weight: 3U
  • Balance: Even balanced
  • Stiffness: Stiff shaft
  • Shape: Isometric
  • Suitable for: Offense/Defense

  • Weight: 3U, 83g
  • Balance: Head light
  • Stiffness: Stiff shaft

Victor Brave Sword 12

This is the cheapest of the Top 5 Badminton Rackets 2020 and it is not just for the professionals. Would be a good choice for intermediate players as well and is not as high-grade as the other four. Just a very good allrounder for most playing styles.

  • Grip Size: G4/G5
  • Weight: 4U
  • Balance: Even balanced
  • Stiffness: Medium stiffness
  • Shape: Isometric
  • Suitable for: Offense/Defense

Pros: Great allround racket

Cons: Lacks a bit of power, if you don`t have the perfect technique and arm accelaration

So these are the Top 5 Badminton Rackets in 2020. Lets see what the future brings. I am sure Yonex, Victor, Li Ning and all the Others will come up with even better material soon.
