Description

  • For strong, attacking players on the court
  • Fast Shot Reaction Speeds with Sonic Rebound Technology and R.T.C
  • Even Balance for all round game

Another highlight from the Auraspeed Series: Auraspeed 80X. This racket’s stiff shaft enables brilliant accuracy across the whole court as well as during net play. The even balance offers lightning fast shots, without losing any power, thanks to the Sonic Rebound Technology and R.T.C.

Hard Cored Technology Hard cored techonology provides players with optimal racket handling helping to increase your shot responsiveness. Inspired by helicopter rotor blade technology, a structure of multilayer carbon fibre and its composites, retains racket stiffness but minimises material size, reinforcing racket handling and performance.

Rebound Transition Construction

During big hitting shots and fast rallies, Rebound Transition Construction (RTC) enables players higher quality speed, accuracy and responsiveness in shots played. R.T.C technology is scientifically based, with a specifically designed structure introducing ‘reflection points’ within key areas of the racket frame. These reflection points, maximise rebound performance benefitting the player in both increased shot quality and swing speed.

Sonic Rebound Technology

Delivering players with faster racket speeds, and peak rebound performance vital in defencive shots, helping you turn defence into offence. Sonic Rebound Technology integrates with Rebound Transition construction (RTC) technology to deliver a racket made of high resilient modulus graphite (Sonic Rebound Technology) with the maximised rebound performance from RTC technology. These double-duty technologies redefine what it means to own a SPEED racket, with all-round rebound performance increasing your shot quality.

Pyrofil

Pyrofil Carbon Fibre aids playable time till fatigue, in addition to better control and racket durability for all styles of play. Originating from the car industry, the Japanese Pyrofil ultra-light carbon fibre material and its composites, enhances handling, control and shock absorption through high-intensity, ultra-light bonds. The additional benefit is a core strength, resulting in a reliable racket construction you can trust for years to come.

Compound Sword

Enhancing both attacking and defensive shots, the Compound Sword frame structure helps players to accelerate their swing speeds for steeper quicker attacks (eg: steeper smashes) while maintaining control and defense ability through greater rebound (easier smash defence). The Compound Sword frame achieves this by having three distinct structures. Firstly, the upper racket head is ‘fan-shaped’, aiding decreased wind resistance and swing acceleration. Secondly, the compound middle is designed to lighten the filler and enable fast rebound. Finally the lower racket head is built in a aerofoil structure to decrease wind resistance while maintaining outstanding anti-torsion through a ‘whipping’ style of shot, creating rapid steep attacks with satisfying control.

Buying Guide

Badminton Rackets Buying Guide

The key question to ask firstly is what style of player are you, or what type of player do you want to become?

  1. Power Attacking
  2. All ound
  3. Fast Reactions to Rallies
  4. Control and Touch, by moving players around the court to create space

As a general guide for your playing style below is the kind of racket you'll want to look at purchasing:

Playing Style

Racket Balance

Racket Flexibility

Racket Weight

Power Attacking

Head Heavy

Stiff

85g – 89g (3U)

All Round

Balanced

Medium

80g – 84g (4U)

Speed & Fast Reactions

Head Light

Medium

79g or below (5U and up)

Control & Touch

Head Light

Hi Flex

79g or below (5U and up)


In simple terms is means this:
Player with Explosive Backswing Hitting = Stiffer Shaft needed as it'll unload faster for more power
Player with Slower Backswing Hitting = More Flexible Shaft needed so that it'll unload fully at impact

If you're still unsure what to choose for yourself, we'd recommend going for a medium flex badminton racket to minimise the chances of choosing incorrectly what's right for you.

Weight:
Weight can make a real difference to reaction speeds, and power behind the hit of a shuttle. Too light a racket and it won't go far or powerful enough. However too heavy a racket and you'll find you'll be reacting too slow in fast flat rallies, where reaction speed is everything.

Most rackets are weighted around 3U (85-89g) or 4U (80-84g), this is because it's a good weight balance for players to hit hard and also be able to react fast too.

Typically singles players will use heavier rackets 3U (85-89g), this provides the player with more stability and accuracy, with a little more weight for power behind it, without compromising on racket speed too much, as quick racket head speed isn't needed as much in the singles game.

Doubles players however will usually want lighter rackets, the most popular weight for this being 4U (80-84g), this is because the Badminton Racket will offer more speed and quicker reactions in around the net and for defence against smashes.

Racket Strings Used & Tension

Again like the grip, this is customisable on any racket. However do look out for racket tension ranges on the product as this could potentially limit your ability to have the racket strung at a desired tension.

For a full breakdown on strings and tensions, see our buying guide specifically on this.

To put it simply however, if you're unsure what to choose when buying a racket you like, either go for the “Original Strings” option or “Stringers Professional Decision” for which we'll choose the string that best suits getting the maximum performance out of the racket for you.
