    Yesterday, at school team training, I was informed that LCW now holds the record for fastest smash, not FHF! This may be news to you - it was certainly shocking to me.

    I'd like to know any information about this - preferably a nice, high quality video of the shot being played. Any more info about this is greatly appreciated!

    Dont think so, can a singles player smash harder than a doubles player?
    But i think LCW does hold the fastest smash record for singles player at abt 310+ i think....

    Could someone please find some information abt this? written, video, whatever. But seriously, I can't really imagine LCW having a faster smash than FHF. You can't exactly conjure up a doubles smash (all or nothing smash:p) in a singles game because i reckon LCW professional enough to know that that type of smash will backfire on him if his opponent returns it.

    I also don't believe that LCW has the fastest smash. It is very hard for singles player to beat a doubles players smash speed, especially FHF

    Listen, everyone, calm down. I am just as shocked as all of you, and it does seem unbelievable, but it seems like nobody here knows either. The point is, I got the information from a very reputable source (Taiwanese ti-baos in my school team), so I take their word for it. Was just hoping that someone had more information.

    I don't think it's that unbelievable that LCW has a faster recorded smash, but yes, like everyone else, I'm hoping for proof as well.

    this topic is done..there is no proof of any sort that LCW has the fastest smash in the world..some commentators @ tournaments recently doing the FHF & CY match still say FHF is STILL the FRIGIN fastest smasher in ZEE world~
