Don’t last long

I have purchased Rouge string less. I got it stringed locally in the UK with a professional. String tension - 26lbs was used. It soon became my favorite racquets, I was happy with the performance. But then this happened, it abruptly broke 😞. I didn’t even play a hard short or smash, it was just a backhand response and it abruptly broke half and I can’t believe how it happened therefore I believe it doesn’t last long.

I wish I can add the picture

This is my main racket. I love to smash and do fast play. It was feeling heavy at first but after a few games, i get used to it. Good power, good grip, bounce well. Great stuff! Thanks

Thanks for the feedback Mel! Glad that you got used to it really quickly. Happy smashing! :)

Great racket at a great price

Have had this racket for some time now, and i am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

As an advanced senior+ player with preference for mens and mixed doubles i usually play with an even balanced 4U racket with medium stiffness. So on papper, the Volant Rogue S1 should be a perfekt match. And it was !!

First impressions was the aesthetics and build quality. This is a really good example of, that sometimes less is more. It has really caught attention on court, even though it has a simple yet stylish design. And it looks amazing! It is so easy to combine with a variety of colours on strings and grip. And the build quality is not in parallel with a racket in this price range. It feels much more like the quality of a premium racket.

Needed a short period to adjust timing, but it was quite easy to pick-up-and-play. After adjustment, it was so easy to use. Easy executed overhead shots, great control and fast maneuverability. My smashes has become a bit sharper (not harder), and for some reason, my backhand clears have never been so effortless. It is a breeze to connect to the shuttle.

As you might have guessed already, i am so happy and completely satisfied with my purchase of the Rogue S1. And it has my highest recommandation. And on top of that, I am supporting two guys, who are even more passioned about Badminton as I am. And they are the most amazing advocates for this sport.

it is an amazing looking easy-to-play racket at a more than reasonable prize tag.

Thanks for such an in-depth review, Karsten - It means a lot to us! Thanks for your support all the way from Denmark :)

Exceptional racket for the price point!

I've ordered this racket around 2 weeks ago, and have been using it ever since. I have to say I am impressed, considering I have got put onto volant via ads online; as well as it's price point.

Ordered this racket in 4U, really easy to get used to and get a feel. Been playing with this racket in and out sessions throughout the week, paint surprisingly holds on well (clashed once with a random at a social). A really well made design and slick finish, paint/markings from shuttles or whatever really like to stick on the racket head though. I recommended to buy an over-grip to put over the factory grip since it starts to separate after a few sessions, although the factory grip was surprisingly comfortable compared to default grips on Yonex rackets.

The flex and stiffness of this racket is pretty good, not too stiff and completely hard; you can tell it's flexible when swinging. Stringing job was immaculate (strung at 25lbs) and has no flaws.

Overall things I would consider if I were to re-purchase this racket, maybe go for the 3U option, as well as different strings with a higher tension (maybe at 26/27lbs), and to definitely buy grap.

One down side I have is nothing to do with the racket but the complementary bag it comes with, of course it does fit the racket, but I have learned that the adjustment buckles for the shoulder straps are fragile (mine ended up breaking); as well as the foam lining, when putting the racket inside, getting caught up in the zipper at times.

Thanks Tyler for the review and sorry to hear that your shoulder strap broke. We will be looking at re-designing the racket bag :) Appreciate your honesty and hope to serve you again in the future!


Brilliant even balanced racket for beginner/intermediate level at a great price point
