This is a very good raquet for those who are thinking of starting up badminton. It's a super light raquet which can be a pro and a con. Being light, it allows for easier movements and increased control which is great as a beginner as you'll need all the control you can get before you move up in power. The only problem may be that because it's so light, it won't feel like you have much power behind it and also makes it relatively brittle compared to other raquets. Also, because it's so flexible you'll feel a lot of vibration if you don't have a good grip on it and it'll feel wierd when you first start playing with it. If you are more experienced, then this is a pretty good defensive raquet with flexibility and a light weight head.
