"Volant's entry into the badminton racket market did not disappoint. The Rogue S1 is an incredible first racket. Does its job perfectly and its performance was a perfect reflection of what is marketed and described.
By far one of the easiest rackets to use, regardless of playing level. Power is easy to generate, and the racket itself is very manouverable. Also very easy to defend, and counterattack with which suits my style perfectly! Very reminiscent of the Yonex Arcsaber 10, or a Victor Bravesword 12 but slightly slower. However it does seem to have slightly more flex than those two rackets, which makes it forgiving for beginners but I did find myself having to focus slightly more on controlling the shuttle for shot placement.
Beginners will love this racket due to its ease of use, its even balance which makes it easy to swing, and its medium flex which makes power generation effortless. More advanced players with an all rounded playstyle, or a counterattack doubles playstyle will also enjoy it. Big smashers, or very offensive players may not love it as they probably won't get the most power but give it a try! You can smash all day! Oh... did I mention the racket looks so amazing?!" — Andy Nguyen
"After much anticipation, I've finally tried out the Rogue S1! Wow what a racket! It feels great in the hands! Manoeuvring and smashing was really comfortable! This is the most aesthetically pleasing racket I've seen. Like something Bruce Wayne would own if he ever took up badminton. Thanks Volant for adding that superhero feeling!" — Phuong Ho
"To see a very new brand hitting the market with an absolute professional standard makes me happy as a customer. The Volant S1 Rogue has definitely exceeded my expectation in every aspect of the game I love. Thank you for the beautiful racquet Volant. It feels great just like every other top end brands. You've definitely made a beast of a racquet. Keep up the good work fellas, will always support ya." — Devinthiran Pandiyan
