Thanks. Le Coin has Nanoray 200 Aero at $105 but it does not seem to include strings. I visited Sports Experts and this racquet is on sale for $115 - stringed already (down from $180). I guess Sports Experts is a better deal for this racquet? I might go to buy it tomorrow.
I highly suggest that you have custom strings installed anyways, factory strings are very durable, but they don't perform very well.

Agreed. It's fine to test out and get some games in but I always get my racquet strung before I play.

It does make a whole lot of difference, even basic strings like BG65 perform much better and last a long time (provided you don't have them strung at like Sportchek & co).

Just looking to see if I should get a 2nd badminton raquet. I currently have a Nanoray 10F and it might be a little too loose for me? What are my options?

Strings lose tension over time, so that is normal. That racquet you have is a head light and very light (4U). Unsure where you are skill-wise and what is it you want to go for, but if you want to stay within the same class of racquet, the Nanorays would be my suggestion. If I were to pick one for you, I'd suggest the Nanoray 200 Aero. It's only $105, same weight class as yours and also a head light.

Personally, I'd string it at 25lbs. Once this one is strung, redo the strings on your older racquet at the same tension. This way, should one ever break, your spare will be ready to go.

25lbs is pretty high for beginners/intermediate players, especially with nylon shuttles. 20-22 lbs is usually more in line, unless you have your racquet strung at Sportchek, then feel free to ask for a lot more, you're going to get 60% of the tension anyways.

I think Max Sports and Canuck Stuff are the main badminton retailers in Toronto ?

Not sure as I live in the suburbs. I string my racquets at J-Zone Badminton on Kennedy above the T&T.

You're right... I was thinking more what I like to use but ~22 lbs would probably be best.

Oh yeah I think I've heard of J-Zone, they used to have good prices on Victor stuff I think!

As it's been said, Nanoray 200 would be a really good direct upgrade. If you're looking for more power, maybe the Voltric 10DG / 7DG would be good options.

Don't forget to ask for 35 lbs tension on those DG racquets Face With Tears Of Joy
