Talbot Torro ELI Junior Badminton Racket for Junior 6-8 Years - Light and Robust
Talbot Torro ELI Junior Badminton Racket For 6 -8 Year Olds
The ELI Junior is the middle racket of the ELI series by Talbot-Torro (from approx. 6 - 8 years). It has a teardrop-shaped head that moves the sweetspot to the top of the club head. In this way, the bat compensates for the eye-arm coordination deficits in children. As a rule, children react a little too late and hit a classic, normal racket off-center and not in sweetsport. The ELI Mini now compensates for this and despite a delayed reaction, the ball is hit in the sweet spot. Due to the shortened shaft, the racket (only 58 cm) is nice and handy for the little ones, lighter and avoiding ground contact. The special learning handle is oval and is therefore uncomfortable in the hand if the club is held incorrectly (so-called frying pan position). In addition, all ELI rackets are equipped with an innovative grip tape concept that uses color markings to show the student the correct finger position for forehand and backhand (self-control). The different colors of the two sides of the club also allow the trainer or teacher to control the posture of the club from the outside (external control).
The robust construction of hardened steel shaft and light aluminum head is approx. 20g lighter than a pure steel club and much easier to handle. Weight including stringing: 97g, maximum recommended tension: 7 kg. With the ELI concept (Easy Learning Initiative) specially tailored to children and beginners, Talbot-Torro promotes the next generation at an early stage. The concept was developed by Talbot-Torro in collaboration with the former national badminton trainer Holger Hasse. The ELI concept is the further development and improvement of the popular BISI series from Talbot-Torro, which has been a reference in badminton school sport for over a decade. The easy transition from "ELI Mini" (from approx. 4 years) to "ELI Junior" (from approx. 6 years) and "ELI Teen" (from 8-10 years) to "ELI Advanced" (from 10 years) thus enables learning that is gradually adapted to the needs of the respective age group. In addition to the 4 different clubs, the ELI overall concept also includes the ELI ball. A very robust shuttlecock made of high-quality and durable nylon with a foamed base.
