Badminton Racket First Impressions: Toalson Camblade Rev 3

I chanced upon this racket when digging around some newly acquired equipment, and it stood out because of its good looks.

It's also my first woven graphite racket - so I had to a little research to find out what in the world it meant. Turns out that woven graphite gives the material a higher strength-to-weight ratio, which means less flex and more power from the same weight.

This was apparent from the Toalson Camblade Rev 3. It's got a 85g frame, but it hits like a heavier racket while delivering the swiftness of a light one. I can't imagine how a heavier one would feel, but it's got to be awesome.

I'll give this a few more tries before typing out a full review, but so far it's impressed.
