When it’s about choosing the high-end badminton racket, Yonex is a brand that comes to mind before anything else. I’m sure you will agree with me.
This Yonex Duora 10 was released in 2015, but still, I can’t resist myself to keep it on top of my intermediate-advanced racket list.
This is one such racket that was accepted by most of the top badminton players, and they switched to this racket after rigorous testing.
No wonder this one is equipped with some sophisticated technologies that set itself apart from the crowd.
It offers a hybrid design that allows a player to play equally well with both forehands and backhands. That is something that all the modern days’ players expect.
Its dynamic dual design helps it to provide both power and speed at the same time.
The dual optimum system is offering a box frame on one side that makes it a heavy-hitting racket. That eventually will help you to perform powerful smashes.
On the other side of the dual optimum system head, it has an aero frame that helps to cut through the air quickly. That helps for backhand and defensive shots too.
The shaft is slim and made from high modulus graphite and nanometric that ensures the strength of this model.
I must admire the aesthetic beauty of this model. It has two colors (orange and green) on a black base that make it stands out without any doubt.
As I said, practically, this one is a 2U racket, but it shouldn’t be an issue for an intermediate to advanced players.
Overall, this one is a perfect all-rounder racket that has something to offer for all kinds of shots you want to play as a modern-day player.
It won’t break your bank either.
