    Lightbulb Guitar string on a badminton racket?

    This may sound outrageous... but what do you guys think about using guitar string on a badminton racket? The material on a guitar string seems to be more durable than badminton ones.

    yeah. i was going in that direction. in fact, i already ordered a pack of stainless steel wire to try it out.

    i am not too convince at this point how much weight it will add though, to make a 3U racket into a proper training racket it will require around 40grams. that seems a lot for something that thin. i guess we will find out.

    the metal strings might just bite right into the cork of the bird with a hard enough smash or a few slices. The nylon may take a bit longer.

    Interestingly, that's how Ashaway started off a long, long time ago: manufacturing fishing line...

    instead of giving us the video while you playing with it, just send us the sound recording XD We might know what you were doing by listening to the "song" you played XD

    hahaha. how on earth that such this idea does exist. i cannot hold my laughter. hahahaha. damn funny. just imagine when smashing instead of sound like "paaaammmm" it turned out to be "greeeeeng greeeeenggg greeennng (and people start to head banging).

    How about a racket with tuning pegs at the end of every string? No more tension loss.
