Description

  • Aimed at players needing more power and accuracy on the thier backhands
  • Ideal for club players looking to improve all areas of their game
  • Nanometric Frame Technology for stability when hitting
  • Built in T-Joint for durable high strength frame

The Yonex Duora 6 Badminton Racket is made for the intermediate player, wanted to have extra speed and power on the backhand like all the Duora range. Unlike many of the other Duora racket range, this racket is very head light.

This makes it ideal for any player focused on speed around court, excellent defense and those wanting to change defence to fast front court attack. It's also a great racket for fast flat rallies where there's lots of drives being played in the game, due to the head light weighting of the racket allowing you to have very rapid swing speed.

DUAL OPTIMUM SYSTEM

NANOMETRIC DR is a new carbon
material developed by Yonex based on our unique NANOSCIENCE technology. Created from a material originally developed for next generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc., this marks the first time it has been used within the racquet industry. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, NANOMETRIC DR puts the DUORA into a class of its own.

NANOMETRIC DR

The ISOMETRIC™ equalizes the length of the main and cross strings in the string-bed, enlarging the sweet spot for more consistent accuracy even on off-centre hits.

ISOMETRIC

The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.

NEW Grommet Pattern

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.

SOLID FEEL CORE

Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.

AERO+BOX Frame

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.

NEW Built-in T-Joint

Super Slim Long Shaft

The slimmest racquet ever produced by YONEX vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.

The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.

Control Support Cap

VIBSLAYER CARBON is a material incorporated into the bottom-half of the frame. Made with ultra-thin layers of shock-absorbing material* between layers of carbon, players experience the same level of repulsion power generated by normal carbon with greatly reduced shock impact, cutting down on fatigue and stress on the body.

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.
