The ELI Teen is the second largest racket in the ELI series by Talbot-Torro (suitable for players from about 8-10 years old). It has an isometric head with an enlarged sweet spot for a forgiving game (for off-center hits). Due to the shortened shaft, the racket (only 63cm) is easy to handle for the juniors, 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 colour markings to show the student the correct finger position for forehand and backhand (self-control). The different colours 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: approx. 95g, maximum recommended tension: 7kg. 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 old) to "ELI Junior" (from approx. 6 years old) and "ELI Teen" (from 8-10 years old) to "ELI Advanced" (from 10 years old) thus enables learning that is gradually adapted to the needs of the respective age group. In addition to the 4 different rackets, the ELI overall concept also includes the ELI ball. A very robust shuttlecock made of high-quality and durable nylon with a foamed base.
