😜 Our 3rd batch of sabers has arrived and in stock. Our first 2 batches sold out in record time don't miss out again 😉 

Introducing the new sweet spot training tool from Functional Tennis to help you feel the sweet spot. 

🏭 Made from a composite material in the same world-class factories as other major brands it has a 37sq.in head and weight of 312 grams strung, one coach has said "Straight out of the bag, it feels expensive and very well made"

💬 Players have said it's a “game-changer” providing a “great feel” and a “must-have for every coach and serious player”. 

🥷  There is no need to change your grip or adjust your playing style to be efficient, simply swap your racket for the saber and you will feel at home right away. We’ve had a top International Junior playtest, and his dad reported back “he doesn’t want to play with his normal racket anymore!”.

FAQS

- 300 Grams Unstrung

- 312 grams Strung

Yes it comes strung.

Of course, it can 😉

It can be strung in all manual machines and most automatic machines. If available we recommend you use the badminton kit on automatic machines but this is not necessary.

Recommended String Tension

- Poly 13.5 KG / 30 lbs

- Synthetic 16kg / 35 lbs

It takes just under 5.5 metres to restring so we recommend you cut 6 metres of string.

A normal set of strings is 12 metres so you will get 2 restring from your normal set 😀

The saber has a bigger hitting area compared to the pointer, it's more comfortable on the arm and less forgiving but still difficult.

Also, it allows you to easily hit spin with your normal grip, unlike the pointer where it's harder to hit spin and you have to adjust your grip.
