Ideal for intermediate or advanced players. Racket comes strung with Kawasaki string at 25lbs and full presentations box. This Kawasaki King K8 badminton racquet is ideal for aggressive players who are looking for a stylish design.
The King range is destined for players who have an offensive game style.
The 84g (4U) of weight, the medium shaft and the balance in the head ensure more power and speed.
The balance and the average stiffness amount will enable you to hit powerful shots to help you easily finish off points. This compromise will enable you to control your shots and attack your oppoonents with additional acceleration. Next, the higher angle adds more power to your smash!
These technologies and the innovative racquet structure will bring you extra power on your smashes and more control on your slower shots. This implements more explosiveness and acceleration at the moment of impact.
The King K8 integrates numerous technologies, such as the Hexagonal Frame and the Kernel Power to reinforce the racquet's structure. Also, the C60 Fulerene Carbon derives from some of the latest innovations from the brand and offers more reinforcement and ensures a high quality and strong racquet structure.

I have a 87-89g racket and this is a 85g racket. I feel this racket is faster in the air and stronger even with the default strings. With the grip it was uncomfortable to play but after i applied the supplied over grip on top of the grip then it became my extension. Unfortunately I clashed it with another racket. I was hitting a powerful clear then and it broke. Such a heartbreak. The true lethality of the racket would've been evident at 25-26lbs. Maybe ill buy another one.
Plays well looks strong. I will surely put a detailed review of the racket since currently I am playing with the default string (tension seems less than 22 )and the default grip seems thin for my hand. Need to do some changes on the racket.
