• This is a head-heavy racket. So you will get some extra power support from this racket, which is vital for a beginner.

As you may know, not all rackets are suitable for everyone, but this is a close one. This light racket can be perfect for beginners or players recovering from an injury. The weight on the racket can also be great for those of you who are looking to play casually. It is a cheap model but a durable one nonetheless.
The only scenario where this racket may not prove as useful could be competitive play. When in competitive games you may play more aggressive, and this racket is not designed to resist the fast and powerful swings of professional players.
In general, what attracted me most is its ability to satisfy a beginner with its multiple beginner-friendly features.
On top of that, when you buy a racket for a beginner, you should go for quality but a less expensive ones. Senston N80 has that quality, and it is cost-effective too.
So, in my opinion, this is the best badminton racket for beginners.
I’ve already mentioned the core values in the Pros section. Let me cover some points in a bit of detail.
As I said, this is an isometric head-shaped racket, which offers a larger sweet spot than an oval-shaped racket. Consequently, you will get extra power for almost every shot you make.
Moreover, a larger sweet spot means the string bed is more forgiving.
It’s quite easy to maneuver and swing because of the pyramid frame rim design. With air mechanics, it minimizes the swing resistance.
The grip comes separately. Therefore, you have to put it on yourself, and it’s an easy task.
Consider adding extra grip if you are not ok with a single grip. As this racket is head-heavy, so in case you want to have more weight at the grip, then add one or two extra grips.
Nonetheless, it comes with carrying case/cover. So, it’s a plus.
This is a quite handy choice for anyone who is about to learn this fantastic game of badminton.
It’s lightweight, responsive, stable, offers a larger sweet spot, easy to carry, maneuver, and swing. Altogether, it’s worth the money.
