what is wrong with this racket??
Carlton head, Yonex arse!
this is what happened. Brandon's coach says he is too big boy to use his super short baby racket. and daddy cannot bear seeing him use another steel racket so i took my Carlton Powerblade 9909 which has a broken handle, saw off the handle, took a Yonex handle from another broken racket, and then epoxy them together into a 620mm junior length racket.
then i took a really soft Carlton AG66 string and strung it at 20lbs (lowest that my WISE would go)
the result is the above. slightly on the heavy side but definitely better than a steel one.
lol! Does it play well?
Next trend in badminton: Hybrid rackets!
If I'm being honest, I'm more impressed with how neat the grip is wrapped. Very impressive.
i haven't tried it.
he seems to like it. but he is only 7...
i think the blue and yellow works pretty well, no?
well unfortunately the little boy didn't look after his stuff and now the racket head is cracked. he was pretty sad about it but hopefully he learns a lesson.
but afterwards he graduated to a full length racket and he loved that one. he liked the MBS Atom 10 which i think has a lot of potential as a very good youth racket given that it is very easy to swing as well as packing a good punch.
given that he broke the old one, he is now very careful with the Atom 10.
This is full of awesome!
Had the same scenario with my 7 year old and my prokennex 787 from university. She used it as a prop, leaning on it like a stick and then the racquet head caved in. She is much more respectful of equipment now.
haha good pet project!
coincidentally, i had a bit of free time this weekend and put together two low end rackets the kids in my neighborhood managed to break, as they usually do (my place is usually where the junk ends up at )
the shaft did not go too well into the handle, so it rotates a bit at times. i can check how freely it rotates with my thumb and can alter the angle at the last moment before taking the shot and trick my opponents. i should patent that idea..Rotating-Adjusting-Angle TM shaft-handle TM Series and make millions. and one free piece to all BC members, lol
Could you tell me what overgrip is that ? It looks neat and just thick enough!
It looks like Rkep G09
G09 directly over the wood handle coz the boy has small hands.
It has more to do with me assuming that someone with your reputation would only use what's considered to be the best.
A lad at my club had to do this "handle transplant" once. We called the resulting racket "the Victex".
Victex, that's like the little twin of 'Yontor', right?
