    An excellent+ racquet would be a torsion-agile model with built-in motion sensors that allow an automatic return of the shuttle to just out of reach of the opponent. :cool:

    KK, good imaging...That seems as a kind of Automatic Serve Machine using popular in Pingpong training, but badminton shuttle is not a ball...:rolleyes:

    What duh? How did you know? News spreads fast. :p

    I've been training with and playing against Halim but definitely not giving him any run for his money. His wrist power is incredible, strongest I've encountered, by far.

    Halim is a first-rate person; he's humble, cordial, a great coach...a true champion. :)

    1) WELCOME BACK!!!
    2) Sorry to tell you, here is my people of priority. My family in Cal. My #2 best friend in Irvine (By the way, she is a blackbelt in Judo, so I will run to here for help if my @ss is kicked by you) My god mother in Irvine then dear NGP. So I need a week in Co Cal before I can get to you. Unless I can get a business trip to our Irvine office...
    3) Are you done moving to OC?

    1) I'm not back, I'm still hibernating...

    2) What's "Co Cal"? Must be a new city in Cali. :D

    3) Not even close to moving to OC, shooting for early next year.

    P.S. You and Halim will be kick the panda. I won't be kicking anything. :p

    I didn't believe it until I clicked the link :eek:

    lol lol lol :D:D:D The movie could have been Badminton Panda...
    ...perhaps with a plot similar to Kung Fu Panda (courtesy: wikipedia) :cool:

    Plot: :rolleyes:

    Badminton Panda features Sir NGP as Dink the Panda.
    Dink the Panda is a badminton fanatic whose shape, unfortunately, doesn't exactly lend itself to competitive badminton. :eek:
    In fact, Dink's defining characteristic appears to be that he is the laziest of all the animals. :D
    That's a problem because an evil warrior named Cooler has escaped from his prison :D, and all hopes have been pinned on a prophesy naming Dink the Panda as the "Chosen One" to save the day. :p
    A group of badminton coaches is going to need a gold medal in patience if they are going to turn this slacker panda into a badminton champion before it's too late.
    Will they succeed in turning the lazy panda into a champion panda? :p

    hello, i was about to buy a new racket... a AT 700, but does it really break that fast? I do play with some beginners sometimes, so if it breaks that fast (poor+...) I think I need to buy another racket... :( so is the differnce in durability that big? between AT700 and AT 900/SOTX/...

    Dinkalot's AT700 was in 4U, which is more fragile than the 3U model.

    and isn't it a bit of a paradox..? i know the table subjective but AT900P isn't bold, but as many say it's one of the best rackets atm...?

    A fellow BCer brought this to my attention, it's not:

    But rather:

    I'll correct it, one of these days. Panda is still hibernating. :p
