WHAT WE SAY AS TESTED BY OUR OWN FULLY QUALIFIED BADMINTON COACHING STAFF:

The deal sounds great. TWO rackets (including upgrades) and a FREE thermo bag all for less than the cost of one racket. So is there catch? Nope. The thermo bag is very good quality and these are genuine high performance rackets that really did sell at an RRP of £140, there are just newer models available now. Weighing in at over 90 grams, the Kinesis Rapid is not light but does deliver great power in smashes and drives. We like the even balance feel of the Rapid – the racket plays well out of all areas of the court keeping good touch and feel around the net without compromising on that all important baseline power for clears and smashes. If you’re looking for that great all-round performance without breaking the bank, Kinesis Twin Pack is the deal for you!

POSITIVE: Unbeatable all-round package.

NEGATIVE: Last year’s colours.

The Carlton Kinesis Raid Badminton Racket is designed for players to attack with high force using a short swing. Unlike the Kinesis Ultra the Rapid has a Stiff shaft as opposed to a Ultra Stiff shaft making shuttle control easier and 5grms heavierfor an even deeper smash.

The design makes the racket light and maneuverability this allows greater control in rapid fast flat exchanges and when recovering fast smashes. Overhead shots are effortless due to the balanced feel of the racket and the maneuverability allows quick deception.

Kinesis - 90 degree twists at 2, 5, 7 and 10 o'clock to reduce weight and acts to increase swing speed witht the Vortex Geometry.
Vortex Geometry - A new design of the racket head to help improve the aerodynamics of the racket throughout the whole swing. Most rackets are designed with excellent aerodynamics in a single plane, the Vortex System is designed to have excellent speed through a whole rotation.
Circometric - An oval shaped head that provides better aerodynamics than an isometric head allowing faster swing speeds. The more compact hitting area gives extra feel and touch on the shuttle.
Xtreme Tension Frame - Attention to detail and high quality materials ensure that Carlton rackets are safe to be strung at higher tensions.
Micro Grommet System - Smaller tapered edge grommets that sit in a groove in the frame reduce aerodynamic drag by allowing the string to sit closer to the frame.
Pro V12 Grommets - Small flexible grommets that allow greater string movement to increase the power the centre crosses can generate.
Japanese HM Carbon - A Hi Modulus top of the range carbon that is a consistent high quality providing durability and stability.
Ultra-Lite Cap - A re-design of the traditional cap to reduce the racket weight as much as possible. The new cap is perforated to reduce its weight by 28%.
The racket comes strung in Carlton Xelerate X67. The tension range for this racket is 18-28lbs.
