Hiroyuki Endo’s Badminton Racket

YONEX DUORA Z STRIKE

2018 – PRESENT
Hiroyuki Endo is currently using a Yonex Duora Z Strike. In the photo above, the shaft of the racket near the handle looks different because Endo puts adhesive tape on the shaft. Its just a unique thing that he does.

The Duora Z Strike is not a very common racket for doubles players. If you watch him play closely, it can be seen that Endo clearly changes his hand grip up and down the racket handle. This is a technique many doubles players use. This technique helps you a lot if you are using a heavier racket for doubles.
