ok, I believe that I will need to make my own standard system that can work for whatever brand...
All apacs rackets are 4UG2 & their grip sizes are friggin small!!
when comparing head to head with a yonex G4, i think it's still way smaller.
the specs printed on different models of apacs rackets seem to be the same
Mass:85g+/- 1 gram
Balancs 285mm+/- 3mm
does that mean all apacs rackets feel the same other than the printing and design??
Got a stupid question. i been reading about "sweet spot" - can anyone roughly tell me where that is? Is it the area the middle of the racket? Thanks.
The higher the tension our stringing is done, the smaller the sweet spot we get
The sweet spot is located in the middle of the string-bed. It's like the middle spot of a trampoline.
The higher the tension our stringing is done, the smaller the area of sweet spot we get.
Hi - thanks alot.
Follow up question:
1) When smashing - it is best to ensure we hit the sweet spot?
2) When making drop shots - it is best to ensure we hit the sweet spot?
Hitting from the sweet spot is the best
Generally speaking, hitting from the sweet spot is the best; for we can predict how the shuttlecock will travel.
There are 3 main 'stiffness of racket shaft' descriptions
I posted some comments in another thread. Thought that it would be good to post them here too.
How to remember the stiffness of racket shaft descriptions.
There are 3 main shaft descriptions, namely;
* Medium (most common)
The 'not-so-common' descriptions (usually confusing many players) are;
* Medium Stiff (it lies between Medium and Stiff)
* Medium Flexible (it lies between Medium and Flexible)
Then comes the easily understood ones;
* Extra Stiff
* Extra Flexible
Does carlton rackets have similar grap size measurement with yonex?
i planning to get calton airblade 1000 with G5 as yonex measurement...
Exact measurement size (whether in inches or cms), I do not know.
But in both Yonex and Carlton, the smaller the Grip Size number, the bigger the grip/handle size.
Therefore, your Calton Airblade 1000 with G5 is with the smallest handle.
Know i know whats the G,U and lbs all about,.. thank you
Now all you have to do is to enjoy your Badminton with the specifications best suitable for you.
yeah... i'm gonna smash them all the way ... ) I really love badminton its my passion...
It's better 4U that 3U ???
You really have to look at your own playing style and strength
As commented by terror in Post #16;
APACS, the larger the number, the larger the grip.
I hope that BWF can standardise the weight/measurement info for our Badminton
Yes, it's informative but I hope that one day BWF could step in to tell ALL racket manufactures to follow an universal system for "G" grip sizes.
For "Tension" of recommended racket stringing, manufacturers are informing us in either/both in 'Kilograms' (Kg) and/or in 'Pounds' (Lb).
For "U" weight of the rackets, manufacturers are now informing us in 'Grams'.
For the weight of shuttlecocks, BWF is still allowing 'Grains' and 'Grams' to be used. However, Yonex is still using the No.1 to No.5 for their shuttlecock speeds.
Yes, I really hope that BWF can standardise the weight/measurement info for our Badminton.
does this apply for yonex and victor rackets????
I just found this thread;
Know I posted it before but apparently not in here as I couldn't find it: U was introduced when the first (Yonex) racket went Under 100 grams: the Carbonex 8 B-8500. Before there was L, 2L and 3L meaning Light, extra light (sub 110gr.) and extra extra light (sub 105gr.)
L: >110gr. ? (said +115gr. but that means we've lost 5gr. in between )
Came across this info in a series of articles on the history of racket development as posted on a dutch badminton news portal some years ago.
