Black Knight�s SuperLight series of racquets are built to accelerate and to react faster for you. With superlight nano carbon materials and a finely tuned distribution of weight and flex, these racquets seem to react faster than your thoughts, yet still deliver the power of much heavier racquets.
"Take the shuttle early" is a key to success in badminton - early means higher, often turning defense into attack; early means sooner which leaves an opponent unprepared and out of position; early means the faster reaction time and acceleration of a Black Knight SuperLight racquet.
Characteristics of the FEATHER XL :
The new Feather XL combines an extra long frame with superlight carbon materials.
Its light weight means faster acceleration - whether moving the racquet into position or striking the shuttlecock. Yet the carefully matched weight, flex and length allows the Feather XL to deliver the power of a heavier racquet.
BLACK KNIGHT SUPERLIGHT FEATHER XL FEATURES:
a highly effective form of carbon-graphite rated above conventional High Modulus Graphite.
a strong, super light form of graphite (also known as "nano-carbon")used in special applications where high strength must be combined with light weight.
In spite of the recent popularity of complementary materials such as Titanium, Beryllium and BrainWeave, the type and quality of the Graphite is the most important material factor in the features and performance of higher range racquets. The nature and mix of the graphite fibres will determine strength, torque, flex, weight, vibration dampening and response. Some factors critical to the quality of the finished graphite product are:
-The quality of the raw graphite filaments;
-The treatment process (which immerses the graphite in an epoxy compound and converts the hair-like filaments into workable sheets);
-The mold design
-The lay up process
-The application of appropriate internal pressure and temperature during the curing process.
This model is 68 cm in length, 1.5 -2.0 cm longer than traditional racquets.
Adding extra length in a lightweight badminton racquet is the surest way to add power. The longer axis between the hand and the point of contact adds head speed, and that translates into more energy to the shuttle.
Traditionally, badminton racquets are built 66-66.5 cm in length. At Black Knight, you will find most of our full graphite racquets to be 67cm, with a few models available at 68cm for the maximum effect.
Many XL models also have long handles for players who change their grip position according to the shot being played.
