Collection: Yonex Intermediate Badminton Rackets

Yones Intermediate Badminton Rackets are hard to identify from first impressions as rackets often look so similar, so how you define and identify what’s right for you? Well firstly a general guide for this is price, you’ll be looking at rackets from around £60-120, this is because in this range you’ll find 90% of the intermediate rackets you’re looking for. Any cheaper than £60 and it’s highly likely that the materials and technologies used in the racket aren’t good enough for intermediate players and will hold their game back.

Typically there’s also some standard features for Yonex Intermediate Badminton Rackets that you’ll want to look for too. The good news is the biggest range of rackets available from Yonex is for intermediate players. Our general suggestion is if you’re looking to improve an upgrade your skills as a player a slightly more expensive racket is worth the money as it’ll help emphasise your natural skills as they improve further.

As an intermediate player, the natural strength of players vary a lot, so consider your natural strength, and based upon that it’ll help you with what level of weight of racket you want. Typically, the higher the level of player you are generallty the heavier racket you’ll want to go for as it’ll help with generating more power in the shots, but only if you’re strong enough. The most popular weight ranges for intermediates is 79-89 grams (3U or 4U as it’s known in the industry). 

Secondly is your natural whip action speed is fast you can afford to go for a stiffer racket, this will empower you to have more accurate shots. However if your natural speed isn’t so fast to generate enough power, get yourself a racket with more flexibility on it. In addition to this, a head light racket can also help here too, but it’s not always ideal, particularly if you like to be an attacking player that loves to smash. If that's the case, you'll want a head heavy racket. 

For Head Heavy rackets you’ll want to take a look at the Yonex Astrox Badminton Rackets, and for head light, the Yonex Nanoray or Nanoflare Badminton Rackets.
