In terms of purchasing badminton equipment, the racquet of course is the most expensive equipment you're gonna buy and racquets range in price from I guess as low as 20 U.S. dollars to as high as over 200 U.S. Dollars. And what makes a badminton racquet expensive really is the material that it's made of. Top badminton racquets, the most expensive ones, made by Yonex and Leaning, are composed of graphite and similar type materials which is known for both strength and lightness. Shoes also can range from very cheap to maybe $50 to also very expensive to over $100. In shoes what you look for is a shoe that is very light and durable and also with very good arch support and heel support. And that's all you need to know about buying badminton gear.
