    Ok, I don't have pictures (yet) and I don't bring so much stuff as you guys but, this thread is pretty cool to see and nobody is posting anymore.

    So to bring it to life again:

    - 2 armortec 500 (in case my other snaps a string or something)

    - 1 AT900T (I play my tournaments and matches with this one, might buy the 900 Power to see how it compares... anybody knows this? maybe I'll just buy another AT900T to have 2 of the same rackets, but I'm gonna have to sell my 2 AT500 first, I need the money :( but who buys a used AT500 nowadays... anybody got an idea how to sell these, I'm willing to go realllllyyyyy cheap (like 50 euros))

    - mavis 300 / victor queen / mars diamond / yonex shuttles (need to buy new ones soon :eek:)

    - a pair of yonex shb101 or my old asics.

    -scissor, bandaids and something white that is sticky (don't know the name) to wrap around the bandaid so it doesn't move ;) this is in case of blisters. (I won't give up or loose a match because of pain, O no! go for the win guys!)

    - Bottle of water (1,5 liter)

    - 1 bottle of aquarius rehydration

    - something to eat.

    that's about it for a 2-3 hours training. when It's a tournament, i bring more food and water and spare clothes.

    I want to make a cool picture like you all too :p but im not good at arranging things tidy :p


    allright, who is next to share with us?

    regards,

    Bruno

    Many coaches instruct their student to keep a training log of what drills they did that session. I find its really good to look at retro actively. There are times when I play I can tell my shots are spot on, for example my smash is precisely where I intend to hit it, and then there are times when its off, either too deep or wide left/right. I can look back at what drills I was doing during my peak to recondition that one aspect of my game.

    Its also good to see what drills kicked your @$$ so you can skip those days, err I mean focus really hard.

    Why do you need two pairs of shoes? One for training and the other for tournaments? I noticed most of your things are Yonex but why you have different brands of shuttles?

    No, the shoes have nothing to do with tournaments :)
    I had my asics for 1,5 season, which is too long, so they lost all support and grip on court. But I still do them to do sports outisde, I don't want my shb 101 to get dirty. So I still go running or ropeskipping with my asics.

    I'm also not really used to the shb 101 yet, and got a giant blister from them. So I'm breaking them in really gentle.


    yes, the shuttles... I have different kinds of shuttles at different times.
    Just testing them out. Also, I'm not very rich, so usually the yonex ones are too expensive at 17€ or more for one tube.
    The victor queens aren't that bad, but not excellent. Kinda liked the mars diamond, they are also not so expensive... But a little bit slow of you ask me.
    nevertheless good for training or matches for fun.

    Next kind I'm gonna buy is RSL tourney 1, found a shop nearby that sells them at 14€ for a tube. Still pretty expensive (do you guys get them cheaper?) but I think they will be good.

    anybody got experience with the rsl tourney 1?

    So, now show us your bag :D

    My badminton Bag

    Ok here's an overview photos of whats in my bag : (Badminton clothing and shuttles i did not include them)

    [​IMG]

    Here's the list:

    1 unit of Bag - Yonex JP version BAG802AI (My new bag!)
    5 units of rackets - Zelm Trixon 8
    (From left to right) Yonex AT900T SP
    Lining N55

    Yonex MP55 SP (my old faithful) 1 Unit of Yonex SHB100 LTD shoes

    1 Roll of Yonex Super Grap racket grip (for 3 rackets)
    1 pair of scissors
    1 Roll of electrical wire bind tape (I never use the grip's tape for my racket. Rather i finished off my grip with the electrical tape which to me is fantastic)
    1 Sigg Water bottle
    1 paper fan. (Very very handy during small interval between matches to reduce your sweating :D)
    3 racket cloth bags
    Some plastic bags (To put my dirty laundry of course)

    tckang,

    i thought the paper fan is solely for a picture-perfect shot until i read it's purpose. no offense, but aren't the arenas airconditioned and the towel handy?

    In Singapore, our public badminton halls (where commoners get access to) are all not airconditioned as well. Even when there are air-conditionals installed in the hall/court, they are usually not turned on, only during functions.

    Paper fans are in the trend in Singapore as well. I have seen players as young as 15-16years old, whip out a paper fan in-between games. It used to be a very uncle thing 2year ago, but not now.:p It is the smart thing to do now.:p

    I even had a fan lesson by an uncle before. The uncle has a cloth fan from China, which he paid quite an amount for it. It has an extra whip at the end. He told me, "small input, big output!"
