    Default USENSE badminton racket sensor

    Hey guys,

    Has anyone seen or heard about this - USENSE

    It's available in China and Hong Kong but the prices seems to vary from one site to another.

    If you're in Hong Kong, E78 are selling them from the looks of it - https://www.facebook.com/e78shop/posts/1053667781328201

    I quite like the idea of this device; it will definitely change the way we train.

    Here's a review of the device, didn't think much of it - http://www.kicksmarters.com/2015/05/...racket-sensor/

    Anyone here like to do a more in depth review if they can get it?

    Sure, I'd love to do a review. I've asked the seller whether they are shipping to Germany. Let's see if I can try this! One possible problem is the weight: 8g is not insubstantial for a Badminton racket.

    Looks kinda big for 8 g.

    But definitely an interesting idea.

    Still cheap for what it does. The Sony tennis sensor which does similar is 169 pounds!!!

    I know the company wants me to pronunce as U-Sense but every time I look at it, I want to pronounce as USE-NSE, which comes across to me sounding like USE-LESS. Hahaha.

    I think it's just gimmick, marketed to give the illusion it will improve your play. I'm surprised they haven't dropped in adding baseball, cricket, squash, and racquetball as the countless ways to improve.

    The name is a word play on the coaching app called ubersense.

    Still no real practical review with this sensor? Anyone from Hong Kong knows about this?

    Got mine in the mail (my and DHL's fault that it took so long) and unpacked it. I'll try to test it tomorrow or Wednesday. Device looks as promised.

    Looking forward to seeing how accurate it is.
