Every manufacturer has tried to bring to the market the toughest material that can withstand the highest tensions and aerodynamic design that boost swing speed.
But RSL takes it a step further by bringing out the first ever fully customizable badminton racket in the world. RSL addresses the issue of weight distribution with the revolutionary Evolution "Evo" badminton racket series for 2012.
The common product lines provide head light, head heavy and even weight as the only choices and often players spend their hard-earned money on one model only to realize later it doesn't suit their game. They will then have to take a risk on another variant, or settle for the racket and compromise their game.
RSL thus came up with the Evo, a super high-modulus ultra-light carbon frame that has 48 weight settings, eliminating all the guesswork for players of all skill levels.
The RSL Evo's revolutionary Weight Positioning System allows players to improve on different areas of their game--which means flexibility for the beginner to average player struggling to get their strokes right, and more workability for the advanced player looking for shot-shaping control.
Changes in the body and improvements in technique also require adjustments in equipment and RSL Evo is the solution.
"In any sport, there is a continuous evolution. But RSL is always at least a step ahead," said Duncan Chau, International Brand Director of RSL D.H. Shuttlecocks Inc. "Often you see players wield rackets that don't fit them, and their games suffer, but we have come up with the answer to this problem. "And as they progress they need not purchase new rackets but simply adjust their current gear."
The movable weights in different parts of the racket affect the performance of the racket, such as the top plate that affects power the most, side plates that mostly affect stability and endplate that improves maneuverability.
That means with the RSL Evo, solid hits on the sweet spot will result in huge crisp smashes and drives and more controlled shots, while mishits will be compensated by the weighting system and still result in decent shots.
"We are very excited that RSL launched its Evolution Racket in Toby’s Sports,” said Toby Claudio, President of Toby's Sports. "RSL racquets have always been a favorite among Filipino badminton players due to their outstanding playability and performance. Now RSL has really taken racquet technology to the next level by offering a way for every player to tune their racquet to their exact needs. This racquet is going to change the whole badminton industry."
