The Racket Features

The racket head itself is what is called the frame in ‘badminton language’. Below is a short description of the various frames which FX Forza use.

Hectagon frame
FZ Forza has developed a hectagon frame which is narrower and stronger than usual.  It gives reduced air resistance and less torsion.  That means faster reactions, better control and more power than normal.

Wide Body frame
Extra wide frame structure which makes the frame more rigid and more stable which translates into more shuttlecock control and increased power delivery.

N-Body frame
Regular frame width which has a perfect combination of rigidness and flexibility.  A frame type which will suit all players as it has optimum balance between control and fast reactions and power throughout.

Slim frame
Very thin and flexible frame with minimum air resistance. A frame type which is constructed for players who want fast reactions and hits.

Super Power frame
FZ FORZA has developed the Super Power frame which can  be combined with Wide-body, N-Body or Slim frames.  The s
Super Power frame has a special structure which means that the racket’s sweet spot (the area with the optimal hit on the shuttlecock) increased by approximately 35%. This increases control considerably and also gives more power.

826 frame
Combining the benefits of the hexa and octagon shape, this innovative shape gives you both increased strength in the racket, while being thinner on top.  Decreased air-resistance combined with less torque makes this a precise, fast and durable weapon on court.

FZ Forza racket frames are available with the traditional 76 holes and 88 holes.

76-hole frame
The traditional frame where strings are both vertical and horizontal in some tubes.

88-hole frame
The 88 holes in the frame ensures that there is only one vertical or horizontal string in each tube and thus the racket is not pulled in 2 directions anywhere.  That gives less stress on the frame and thereby a frame which can stand being strung harder.

The shaft

The flexibility of the shaft. The racket shaft is crucial for a racket’s qualities. FZ Forza racket shafts can be divided into 5 categories:-

  • Very flexible
  • Flexible
  • Medium
  • Stiff
  • Very Stiff

Very flexible/Flexible
In general a flexible shaft helps players who do not have good rotation in their lower arm.  Here the shaft gives a good flick and thus helps increase the impact force.  The shaft settles slower than the stiff shaft, but if the game is not played at a fast pace it does not have any significance.  Players who have lost impact force can also benefit from a flexible shaft.

A medium flexible shaft has a good balance between control and power.  It is well-suited for most players and is generally the most widely used shaft for non-professional players.

Stiff/very stiff
The player must have a good rotation in the lower arm in order to use the rigid shaft.  Then the stiff shaft will give optimum control and it will settle down very quickly after the hit,  meaning the racket is ready very quickly even if it is a fast-paced game,  With the proper technique a stiff shaft will also generate a lot of power.


I-power is technology where the shaft has various diameters internally.  The shaft is thickest at the bottom and thinner by the frame.  That way the balance point is moved considerably further up on the shaft.
The result is a racket which flexes more and faster.  It gives an extra flick and thus extra power.
Suited for players who play with fast racket motion and players who are good at using their wrists when they play.
