The ELI Mini is the smallest racket of the ELI series by Talbot-Torro (suitable for players from about 4 years old). It has a drop-shaped head that shifts the sweet spot to the upper end of the club head. As a result, the racket compensates for the coordination deficits eye-arm of children. Children usually react a little too late and meet with a classic, normal racket off-center and not in sweetsport. The ELI Mini now compensates for this and despite a belated reaction, the ball is hit in the sweet spot. Due to the shortened shaft, the racket (only 53cm) is nicely handy for the little ones, lighter and ground contact is avoided. The special learning handle is oval and is therefore unpleasant in the hand with wrong racket posture (so-called frying pan posture). In addition, all ELI racket are equipped with an innovative grip band concept, which shows the student the correct finger position for forehand and backhand with the help of colour markings (self-control). The different colouring of the two sides of the racket also allows the trainer or teacher to control the racket posture from the outside (external control). With the ELI concept (Easy Learning Initiative), which is specially tailored to children and beginners, Talbot-Torro promotes young talent at an early stage. The concept was developed by Talbot-Torro in cooperation with the former badminton national trainer Holger Hasse. The ELI concept is the further development and improvement of the popular BISI series by Talbot-Torro, which has been a reference in badminton school sports for over a decade. The easy transition from "ELI Mini" (from about 4 years) to "ELI Junior" (from about 6 years) and "ELI Teen" (from 8-10 years) to "ELI Advanced" (from 10 years) thus enables a gradual learning adapted to the needs of the respective age group. In addition to the 4 different racket, the ELI overall concept also includes the ELI Ball. A very robust shuttlecock made of high-quality and durable nylon with foamed foot.
