Great alternative to Sportcraft
on October 30, 2011
Purchased this months ago in the summertime for my family. Badminton is something we have all played for recreation for years and the only brand available to us was Sportcraft. I cannot say how many rackets and shuttles we blew through of this brand until I finally got serious and bought a Yonex myself (a 2011 model MusclePower - not made in Japan like the best Yonex rackets, but respectable). I love mine and play my best game with it. We also sought out some Yonex shuttles, which are the best ones you can buy (go for the nylon ones). While Sportcraft rackets may last a few days to months, and Sportcraft shuttles last a few minutes to days, we have only thrown away 1 Yonex nylon shuttle in years. I have never had to replace the Yonex rackets or re-string them. For $30, two Yonex rackets are worth it. I've played with them and they are not bad, much better than other cheap rackets. They are made in China and have a steel shaft, but are good quality for $15 or less. Under normal play, you should keep them for a decent while. My family seems to enjoy them with no complaints. The shuttles and bag that come with the combo are not of high quality but still I think this deal is good. Recommended for beginners to amateurs.
