A badminton racket is an exercise device consisting of a frame with a handle with an open hoop over which a network of rope or gut is stretched tightly. It is used for hitting or badminton in games such as squash, tennis, squash, racket, badminton and cricket. These games are collectively known as racket sports. The design and manufacture of rackets has changed a lot over the centuries.
Badminton racket frames for all sports are traditionally made of solid wood (later laminated wood) and animal gut called gut. Traditional racket size is limited by the strength and weight of the wooden frame, which must be strong enough to support the string and stiff enough to hit or hit the ball. Manufacturers started adding non-wood laminates to wooden rackets to increase stiffness. Non-wood rackets are first made of steel, then aluminum, then carbon fiber composite. Wood is still used in real tennis, rackets and xare. Most rackets today are made of composite materials, including carbon or glass fibers, metals such as titanium alloys, or ceramics.
Gut has been partially replaced by synthetic materials, including nylon, polyamide and other polymers. The racket is re-threaded when necessary, and for the pros, this may be after every game. Despite the name, “cat intestines” are never made from any part of a cat.
