    You double your budget on a badminton racquet to buy a brand previously unheard of. Have more spare string than you can possibly use this season yet you still order a reel of zymax. You buy twice as many racquets as you need (according to non-BCers) to speed up string/tension comparisons. Your string tension is 4lbs too low ;)

    Humidify your birdies and keep them in the fridge one day before playing ...

    you only use Ashaway Zymax strings.
    you turn on your smartphone and first app you start is tapatalk to check out the latest threads in BC.
    you buy yourself a stringing machine so you can join in the stringing forum discussion.
    whenever watching a tournament, you have 2 screens, one with either youtube or some obscure online streaming site, and the other browsing and posting in BC.

    Well dbswansea, you are actually 2 out of 4, if you add:


    • Thinking of your wife as 'mean' because she questions your sanity regarding your badminton addiction. :rolleyes:

    You buy a digital scale like a drug dealer.
    You obsess about Balance Point.
    And Eric is your dealer/bookie!

    This is becoming disturbing, I'm waiting on a RKEP delivery from Eric.

    ...and you buy red strings (which you hate and think look tacky) because [MENTION=1]kwun[/MENTION] (on the other side of the world no less) said they are faster :)

    you overuse the term 'crisp' to describe pretty much any badminton gear

    you get really annoyed when Kwun reviews the latest adidas badminton racket and gives it 5 stars then you find out that it wont be available in your country, even though your wife wont let you buy it anyway.
