Badminton racket used by professional player

Everyone wants to play like their favourite badminton player, which makes them curious about the equipment they use. In this article, I’ll list the rackets used by top men’s singles professional badminton players.

Kento Momota

Momota is a badminton player from Japan. On the court, he is noted for his explosive moves and unexpected style of play. He has won a number of prestigious badminton tournaments, including two World Championships.

Racket used by Kento momota: Astrox 99

However, with the release of the new Astrox 100, I am confident that he will test this racket for a long time to determine if it is right for him.


The racket’s shaft is stiff, which implies it’s suited for attacking players, which is perhaps why Yonex named the campaign steep attack challenge.

Viktor Axelsen

He is a badminton player from Denmark. He was the 2017 World Champion and the 2016 Summer Olympics bronze medalist.

Racket used by Viktor: Duora Z Strike

He switched rackets with the launch of Astrox 99, but it appears that his playing style did not match the racket, thus he went back to Duora Z Strike.


This racket has duora technology, which implies one side of the racket frame is faster than the other, but I didn’t notice much of a difference when I played with my friend’s racket.

I would strongly recommend this racket because it is flawless in every way: control, power, and accuracy.

Chou Tien Chen

Chou Tien-chen is a badminton player who represents Chinese Taipei in Taiwan. In 2016, he became the first native shuttler in 17 years to win the Chinese Taipei Open men’s singles title.

Racket used by Him: Duora Z Strike

Chou Tien Chen is a very fit player who enjoys playing aggressively, which is why he chose this racket.

Anthony Ginting

Anthony Sinisuka Ginting is an Indonesian badminton player. He originally rose to prominence after winning bronze at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics. On the court, he is recognised for his quick movements.

Racket used by Ginting: Astrox 88D

He used to be sponsored by Lining, but now he uses Yonex equipment.


Just a brief word before we get into the features: the D in the racket name stands for dominance, while the 88S stands for speed.

Shaft:- It has a firm shaft, which makes it easier to control your shots than a flexible shaft, but strong technique is required to get the most out of this racket. It also has one of Yonex’s slimmest shafts, which means less air resistance during swings.

Balance:- It is a head heavy racket, but what I liked about it was how fast it was at the same time, which means you can use it for doubles even if it is a head heavy racket.

Anders Antonsen

  1. Antonsen is a badminton player from Denmark. At the 2015 European Junior Championships, he won the gold medal in the boys singles category and was awarded European Young Player of the Year.

Off the court, he is recognised for his charismatic nature.
