Question on changing rackets during a match....
Last year (im not sure what tournament but it was sometime between september-november 2011), I saw a MD match between China (FHF/CY) and Korea (LYD/JJS) where FHF broke the strings of his racket and was able replace his racket while the shuttlecock was in play. Although he did not cause any delay in play, his action might have distracted their opponents. FHF was not faulted for this.
Should FHF be faulted for that action or not??
Please enlighten me, thanks.

to me no fault at all
as it is not the player delibrate action to break his string n go out to change racket
it is fully legal at all
come think of it
how many of the players out there can do so n still able to find time to play the next shot?
handful i guess

Nah, it's not illegal.
He was not gaining any advantage by leaving the court during that time, nor was he trying to pressure the opponents.
Unlucky that it had snapped, great skills to grab another racket quickly
