The flexibility is medium. This makes the Vapour Trail Tour racket from Carlton suitable for the player with an all-round playing style.
This Carlton Racket from the Vapour Trail series is made of Vectran. The handle, as well as the frame of the Vapour Trail Tour, consist of this synthetic fiber. Vectran is five times stronger than steel. This racket only weighs 87 grams. The length of this badminton racket is 67.5 centimeters.
Blade shape: Optimetric
The Carlton Vapour Trail Tour has an optimetric racket blade. This is a blade shape which falls in between the classical blade shape and the isometric blade shape. An optimetric racket blade is an oval with somewhat flatted endings. Although these endings are not as flat as the isometric shape. An optimetric blade shape combines the properties of both shapes: the big sweet spot of the isometric racket blade and the control and high speed of the classical racket blade. The sweet spot is the place on the blade where you hit the shuttle best and where the effort you make with your hit gives the highest possible effect.
