Beta testers needed. Maybe. :)
Okay so hypothetically speaking, say I'm advancing to the next stage with my little badminton racket company project....
....who wants to beta test them and do reviews?
Now, if you're a cool guy that's awesome, but I need to find out who the real 'movers-and-shakers' are, and who can give me a more global perspective on the design and specification of the prototypes.
Sure, me and all my mates think they're pretty awesome, but I'd have to sell more than 20 of the things if I went into full production!
So, my list so far is your friends and mine, Kwun and Paul Stewart.....who else wants to put their hand up?

I don't mind having a look at designs n what not not probably best player to give feedback on specs but I've always said racquet look > racquet feel (don't kill me everyone)

Hello Maklike Tier,
I ask me when White Label goes on. I'm pretty interested to test rackets and review them. I played with a lot and the most famous highend rackets from several brands, so I can compare your baby to the recent and classy Avantgarde.
I did some reviews of strings, rackets and shoes for this forum, so I should be able to write a structured review.
As an engineer, I'm able to get fast into scientific relations.
I would be glad to be a small and tiny part of a young racket brand, especially of a brand which I have seen growing in this forum with all states of development.
Feel free to contact me. I you need a bit more informations about me, feel free to ask. I understand that a young and start up company can't throw around with their prototypes. So not everybody will be suitable.

Hi i would also like to put my name forward. I may not be the biggest contributor to the forum but i did like the original idea for a woven head heavy bravesword. I currently play with a voltric z force 3 times a week and i would rate myself at intermediate level. I would also be prepared to pay towards the cost of producing the prototype and shipping as im in the UK.

I wouldn't want to beta test for a few reasons but I just wanna say keep up the good work to maklike for all he has done in designing these racquets and hopefully they are in the market sooner then later.

I would also be interested in a bit of beta testing, and of course willing to provide feedback like I did with the RKEP rackets.

I would be interested in this project. It'll be nice to see people at our club using a racket that isn't Yonex. I could help out with introducing this racquet to people and I could gauge opinions of the teenagers and younger players.

that would be interesting! if you have some nice headheavy racquets
i've a nice arsenal of racquets for comparison

If I press the go button, there'll be six pre-production samples - three will be medium stiff, three will be stiff. Where they go will depend on who can give the best quality feedback, but people will have them for two weeks before sending them on to the next reviewer.
Right now though, I'm working on the hardest question ...

Colour doesn't matter much to me. Just send me the black one that's stiff and has a head wt of 37.6g +/- 0.2g. Then I can give you a really good comparison review with my arsenal of weapons... namely Panda Power, RKEP XP series, and Victor MX series.

i hope to have a headweight of 42 grams, stiff.
