Racket Balance Point
The balance point of the racket can be in three different places:
- Having the balance point at the head will give you power and send the shuttlecock a decent way whilst giving you less control
- Having a neutral balance point is a good compromise for players who haven't yet learnt their strengths and weaknesses as it is the perfect balance between power and control
- Having the balance point at the handle gives you control and speeds up reaction time, but will not give you any extra power
