    i hope it is not Taraflex badminton.

    the previous incarnation of the 2nd place i mentioned had taraflex. too hard, and even worse when humid...

    I hope not as well kwun :p I chose a floor using virgin rubber that even has a slight texture manufactured into it. Is taraflex listed as approved equipment at the bwf?

    floating floor by Connor ? I assume you're using floating/suspension wood floor with rubber pad on the bottom.

    we did end up using 2"x2"x3/4" all rubber anti-vibration pads at SBC.

    I think it is Tarkett Sports (which wasn't on the last BWF approved flooring vendor list).

    Looking forward to the opening of the facility.

    Have some selection of shuttles at the ProShop. I hate how ClearOne only has Victor Tourney feathers. My friend is too busy (he says) so he buys it from the pro shop. We both hate the Victor Tourney so he has agreed to let me buy the feathers and he'll pay me back.

    Perhaps people can buy bulk feathers from you? You act as a middle-man for such purchases?

    What stringing machine will you have? Will you also perform stringing if the customer brings their own string? I know ClearOne doesn't do it cuz they don't have it as an option. What about sameday service?

    I believe I quote "one of the largest sports flooring manufacturers" I wonder if kwun has played on a Tarkett floor before.
