Very happy with the carbonex 8000. Light weight and strong racket, allows quick reflex reactions while still being good for strong smashes. weight is evenly balanced and not heavy on the head. consider this racket if you want to start playing badminton seriously. If you want a slightly head-heavy racket for more agressive smash play, consider the muscle power 29 lite isometric.
These bat is right on the peak when it comes to durability, ofcourse it wont survive if you hit the ground , i suggest it for juniors who mastered the clears, smashes, net kills,drives, but for specific play i dont prefer it. i like to use artengo820 lite and nanoray light series for doubles as i like to play behind the net, it depends on the level of play a senior of our college outmatches most of our college players with gr 303 but good racquet within the pricerange
Nice product and good price offer from Amazon. I am a mid range player bat gives me light weight feel. We need to add extra grip so that strock also increased. Getting is also ok but not suitable for stroke players need to change the getting.
Found it nice and genuine. Was afraid of fraud before ordering it online as I prefer shopping from shops/malls. Have to mention that this racquet is not suitable for professionals however it does a good job for casual players. Most probably because it is a mid-range racquet price-wise.
Talking about playing, it is good for rallies, net play but weak when used for smash. Of course the comparison is with Muscle power models.
In short, anyone who likes to play defensive, rely more on technique than power, (going economic) will love this racquet.
