    • 1. What type of racket is the Ignite X1?

      It is a head-light racket meaning that the balance point of the racket is weighted more towards the handle, so that the head is lighter. The balance point is 285-290mm from the base of the handle. 

      2. What type of player is it for?

      It's aimed more towards a beginner to intermediate male and female players, and is priced as such. Its lightness makes it easier to swing and change directions with - so it's easier and less-strenuous to hit your shots.

      If you're looking for something a little more advanced, check out the Rogue S1.

      3. What weight is the racket?

      It comes in a 4U model which is 82g.

      Yes, it comes with string so that you can play right away!

Great beginner Racquet reviewed by 10+ year experienced badminton player

Great beginner Racquet, good price range, feels light and flexible, good strong and ok grip. For me I will recommend immediately re-gripping your racquet as it is too thin for my liking. I will get my friends to further test it and if they like it recommend them to buy this one before they move on for more advanced racquets.
Not an advanced racquet, but I also do recommend Volant's balanced racquet if you're looking for an upgrade (my current favourite out of all of my current racquets)

I have been playing badminton for 10+ year, never said I was great, but broke enough racquets/hurt my wrist few times to know a good one from a bad one. I personally own 6 racquets and keep my racquets on rotation to compare them.

Hi Trevor, thank you so much for your review and your support. It means the world to us! :)


Very cool. Grips are nice n chewy

Thanks for your review, R.M! We're always looking to improve so appreciate your feedback.

Good minimalistic racket

I was gifted this by my boyfriend. As a beginner, I don't know much about different types of rackets, but so far I have found this easy to use and light. I also love the minimalistic design, which is a step up from the previous rackets I have used. Would recommend to anyone wanting to purchase an entry level badminton racket which is actually good quality.
