    One of the french badminton websites reported that the fastest smash was by Japan's Naoki Kawamae at 414 kph, and then Malaysia's Tan Boon Heong powered the shuttle to 421 kph, see the write-up below.

    Attention au radar !
    Mais quelle mouche les a donc piqués ? Lors de l’Open du Japon, à l’occasion de tests réalisés avec la toute nouvelle raquette Yonex,Naoki Kawamae a pulvérisé le record du monde du volant le plus rapide (414 km/h), effaçant des tablettes la marque établie par le Chinois Fu Haifeng, à 332 km/h. Dans la foulée, le record volait de nouveau en éclats, avec un nouveau volant envoyé à… 421 km/h, par le Malaisien Tan Boon Heong. Heureusement qu’il n’y avait pas de radar !

    I could not find any thread/s on this forum, nor was there too much coverage in other popular news media. Did you? Where? When?

    It's all hype by Yonex under questionable test conditions and apparatus.

    Fastest smash in real tournament is still Fu Haifeng's 332km/h

    Thanks DRUSS for the update, I missed this thread as I did not look for Equipment or Professional Players fora.
