Not the best racket

New in the sports and decided to get this since it was the first website that came up on Google. Used it for 3 months and it felt alright, took a break in between and came back 3 months later to play the sport, the racket broke just within the first few rally, without hitting anyone, the floor or anyone's racket. I would say that it was disappointing considering the price is in comparison with any mid-tier Yonex rackets.

Amazing racquet

It's a great fit for player with low arm strength, I got the 4U version and it is a little on the lighter side, the balance and control is outstanding.

String was very delicate and it broke on me.

Hi Faruk, thank you for the review on the Yonex Exbolt 65 strings that came with the racket! I hope that you liked the racket though :) We have a blog post on broken strings that may help you if you search on the website!

Nice Design Works Well

Love this racket in terms of the design and the feel in my hand. Suits my more attacking style of play as I enjoy being a hard hitter

Thanks so much Ow SF! Hope that you're still hitting lots of attacking winners with the racket!
