Lightest Fastest Badminton Rackets

One particularly popular area amongst players are the lightest and fastest badminton rackets. Lighter rackets are often best for beginner players, weaker strength players, junior players or those that win their rallies through reaction speed and counter attacking in matches.

In particular for Yonex - their light range have become known as the “Flash Boost” or “FB” badminton rackets. These rackets have been designed to be particularly light for players.

Generally any rackets under the weight level of 79 grams is considered a super light weight racket. This translates to a 6U of 2F weight category badminton racket. 

One of the drawbacks with super lightweight badminton rackets is that they generally are more limiting in terms of the amount of power you can attain from your shots, particularly from smashes. Some players will buy a superlight racket in the expectation that it's going to improve their speed around court without recognising the drawback of reduced power. 

We’d generally recommend for most players a heavier racket will be best suited to them, however if you’re a mixed doubles front court player or really struggle with swing speed, or a beginner wanting to avoid injury, a lightweight racket can be really great. 

Finally these rackets are great for excellent defence, with speed counter attacking with a change of pace

Our top 3 of the best lightest and fastest badminton rackets around would be:

Yonex Astrox 22 Badminton Racket - at 68grams, this is the lightest of the Yonex Astrox Racket Series, and being stiff, it’ll enable accurate shot execution.

Yonex Voltric Flashboost FB Badminton Racket - super light at 60grams, this is officially Yonex’s lightest racket. With a slightly head heavy balance, it helps subsidise the lack of weight in the racket, to enable players to attack.

Karakal BN-60 Fast Fibre FF Badminton Racket - At a tiny 60grams, this racket is exceptionally light and good value too! Karakal’s most popular racket.
