    1 - i'm not quite sure about plastic birds.. i've seen shops selling them. is it that the plastic birds is the one with plastic feather and rubber heads (not cork)? why some people likes playing with plastic birds that the original cork head feather birds?

    2 - sorry if this thread is repeated. if an isometric racket is strung with 2lbs difference, like 23 (M) -25 (C) , would the hitting style would be the same with an iso racket strung with a constant tension, e.g, 25lbs ?

    3 - i've seen MP27, MP22, and MP77 (probably the Light version because it has a new Color).. the MP22 and MP27 does not have the region (SP,.etc) printed on the shaft, could these be fakes?
    what does they mean by Shock-less system on MP22 and MP27?

    4 - did Yonex produced BG-7 before? Is this string the same as BG-70 Pro?

    5 - I followed the link http://www.badmintontv.dk/tip.htm to see Peter Gade's trick shot against Gopi, but the streaming video is a crap, there's no trick shot but only talkings. where can i find a full downloadable movie for that trick shot?

    To answer your first quesiton about birdies, who wouldn't want to play with feather shuttles all the time? The prohibitive factor is of course $$.

    Any decent nylon shuttle would use a cork head. Only the low-end stuff (such as the Yonex Mavis 7) would have a plastic/rubber head.

    I know it sounds funny Cheung but I saw BG-7 selling in S'pore shops recently!

    Never heard of it before really. Don't know if it's fake or not but the packaging is the same as the BG-66, BG-85, etc.

    Re: question 3.

    Do you mean no region code after the serial number? Or after the painted name? If it's there on the serial number but not after the big painted letters then it's probably not fake. I've only ever seen SP on the shaft I don't think other country codes are found anywhere except the serial number. But I could be wrong. It's just my personal experience.

    Well, I don't know if the site is still up yet, but back when it was mentioned, there wre two links at the page, one was to the one you are talking about which has alot of talking, and the other was to the trick shot. I don't know Danish, but I think the first one is Gade is describing some sort of shot at the net where you swing first and then swing again to hit it, which is like deception.

    Yes I'm sure about that.

    Many pple from this forum (mongoose, |r|s, swijaya0101, Merquis) were there with me on that day.

    I didn't enquire about the string though. Will ask the shopkeeper next time I go there.

    bg-7

    haha. guys. im very certain that bg-7 is not a clone. i saw it on a china website. but the performance isn that great after all. i saw bg 7 in many shops in singapore. they have a wide range of colors here. bgt - 70 pro is not kinda widely sold singapore. in fact i dun even find them here in sg. mayb bg 7 is another newer version of bg7 mayb they just rename it?

    You can just go to video.google.com and search up "peter gade" for the trick shot, and 23 / 25 is actually 25lbs, the crosses bring the mains tension up. the difference in the main/cross tension is just to prevent racquet head warping.
