Carlton Ultra Blade 250
Advantages: Comfy and hassle free
I play Badminton at a very basic level in a local club and have owned my own racquet for a number of years now. I tend to replace it every 2-3 years and the latest model I have been using is the Carlton Ultra Blade 250. I was suggested the Carlton range by one of the better players at the club, and indeed by reviews online, and paid £19.99 online for this and I have to say it is a cracking piece of kit.
I had never really heard of Carlton before as a brand but after using the Carlton Ultra Blade 250 I will certainly have no hesitation buying from them again. The impression from this has been nothing but positive! I was a little hesitant about buying a racquet online too as I usually like feeling the product first but I am glad I did!
The first concern I have with some cheaper racquets is that there is virtually no weight to them. Yes I know that a racquet needs to be light but when a badminton racquet is too light it ruins my stroke and it is harder to play with. Experience badminton players will know what I am talking about! The Carlton Ultra Blade 250 however does not have this problem as it has a nice weight to it and feels easy and fluid to play with. The weight is nicely balanced and it feels very natural playing with it and indeed after having so many racquets in the past I would be happy to say that Carlton Ultra Blade 250 is the most natural I have felt playing.
The handle has a nice grip, it doesnt dig into the hand which is a problem I have had in the past with previous racquets and it is, as I have said, a very comfortable experience. The grip has stayed steady, no fraying and it feels very nice to play with the Carlton Ultra Blade 250. The head is solid as is the whole racquet and tensions has remained.
I have nothing much to say about the Carlton Ultra Blade 250 other than praise praise, praise, praise! its a superb device and feels like it has been made for me and my game. Look no further than the Carlton Ultra Blade 250 as your next racquet!
