    He hit 285 just now. He doesn't often reach that fast. Racket making a difference?

    Probably no way to tell - he might have changed the string and/or tension in light of his shoulder problem.

    Watching the INA Open... the JJS racket is coming across as more of a brick-red than orange. We need some high-res publicity shots already...

    I wouldn't put it down to his new racket, he's probably much fresher now and his shoulder less problematic given the rest he had from skipping some tournaments..

    I think so. Maybe his shoulder injury fully recover.

    I have been following his play for quite some time. Yesterday is the first time I saw his speed reach 285+ mark. His smash is always compare with FHF while FHF can reach 290 easily. Now I think he has release the Kraken!!!

    Isn't it logical that he can smash faster due the less stiffness in his new racket (4/5 instead of 5/5)?
    I mean FHF's Kason F9 is slightly stiff only - according the reviews here around.

    Less stiffness -> less direct, but more catapult?

    no, more flex does not logically imply more speed - if these guys swing so fast that the flex is too weak to be 'catapulting forward' when impacting the shuttle, then they will get more speed with a stiffer racket.

    I'm surprised we have not seen some faster smashes actually. I recall seeing a youtube clip where hidayat is clocked at >300kph. I would expect fhf/jjs to be able to smash faster. Was that hidayat smash just a 'glitch' reading?

    That was in the 2006 WC in Spain, where a lot of the players were hitting over 290km/h. Lin Dan and Chen Hong hit just over 300km/h too, so maybe they were using faster shuttles or the speed camera was configured differently?

    FHF played in that tourney too, so I'll watch some matches when I get home later to see if he got over 305hm/h in that same tourney :cool:

    Jung was clocking 280 a lot more regularly than usual during the IO... seems he and his new racket pretty much see eye to eye.

    Wrt Fu's record-breaker... I would lean more toward glitches. There's a way to work out what the highest expected value would be from known values - it'd need the speed of EVERY smash they'd done - but given that Fu might reach 300 once per tournament, I wouldn't expect 332 to be within statistical expectation. It's also possible that the shuttle had been blasted to within an inch of its life - I wonder if there's a correlation between rally length and smash speeds...

    If some saddo fancies plugging a thousand smash speeds in Excel, feel free to prove me wrong:).
