    Finding THE racket is like finding your life long partner

    Since i am the bad boy here (and i always will be :D) To me, finding THE racket is like searching your own life long partner, i.e your spouse (husband or wife). Some prefer tall, some prefer short, some prefer long hair, some prefer muscular, some like a little chubby fat, and the list goes on. Find the wrong one, you end up with separation/divorce. Found the right one, you live happily ever after.
    Like wise, every rackets deserves its good side and its flip side. Like human beings, no one is perfect. Even the best rackets like the legendary AT700s, Carbonexes has its own supporters and haters.
    What is important is keep your opinion/reviews onto the racket and stop there. And be neutral in the sense that if the racket does not suits you, comment about it technically, leave it and move on. No point spreading and INFLUENCE others not to use it,not to buy it, or worse laugh/mock others that use/own it. If you do so, you may end up "helping" your friends/forum members miss the racket of his/her life, just because you yourself do not like it and influence him/her not to like it.

    I don't know why I love that racket, but I do

    .
    Well said. :):):)

    And some players even say; "I don't know why I love that racket, but I do".
    This is good enough for them to buy and use that racket. ;););)

    Well, don't include soccer boots, otherwise we'll have to include baddy shoes as well. But I'll take TC700 gen 1 over Arc Z, graphics/color wise. Still, I think the fiery reds are tops like my SW35;). Off-topic, though leaning towards Spira 21...the graphics is, ahem, no comment.

    Very nice point except like marriages (in the U.S. in general) nearly 50% ended in divorce and so are with rackets? Actually, I don't know with racket but don't they end up unwanted no matter how much we love to wield them in the beginning;);)?

    Well, let's just say that BWF hands down a circular that from now on, so and so will be the standard we ought to adapt, and then astonishingly most everyone submits (not going to happen:rolleyes:) to it. Don't you think we will see a big shuffle at the very top of the rankings or winners at the most prestigious tourneys:):)?

    Naturally, creating a niche market for us individuals is key to the baddy buisness or any business.

    Just trying to untangle the bashing of one racket to another in this thread, that's all:).

    Taufik is using ARCZ-TH-painted ARC-10 in the current Yonex world championship.
    You can see the shape of his racket is exactly the same as ARC-10

    Well, i have accumulated 5 Arc Z so far (JP, UK, SP coded, both 2U and 3U) and all of them i strung them at 27 x 29 lbs. I have been using them for almost 9 months (the oldest one among 5) and had been re-strung more than 5 times. No crack, sunken grommets, or distorted frame. All i can say is your stringer is BS. Go look for others. Having played and re-stringed in China, Singapore and Malaysia, i would say Malaysian Stringers , sadly are the worst and generally they don't dare to string more than 27lbs (generally i say). So good luck in your search. Ara Damansara has one not bad, if you don't mind the distance from your house in Kajang -lah. Personally i find that AJ also not bad, but they can only string up to 28lbs, just nice for your case ;)

    Cheers

    After my third session with the Z Slash , I'm very satisfied with this racket , my smashes were faster , clearing base is easier , the response and feel was better with BG66 Maxima than BG66 , I'm intending to order more from mybadmintonstore.com when the stock is in :D , I'm enjoying every moment with it... Thanks to this wonderful review thread and all of you guys who helped me with my string selection... Thanks again...
