the most important thing to me is how it feels in my hand. very personally speaking, if it doesn't feel good to me, i don't care what people say or how it looks, i wouldn't want to pick it up and force myself to play with it, cos that'll just piss me off and makes me want to break it in half.
example, i think the Li Ning N90 Woods is a beautiful looking racket, but because of the way it vibrates and its sheer weight, i hate playing with it. same thing with the N50 (Flames?). it also annoys me that i can't feel that head heaviness of the racket that some on this forum was claiming, so i just don't use it. they are both unstrung hanging on my badminton rack.

Then, gundamzaku, why did you buy them if they don't look good or feel right to you? Put them up for adoption or hold a fire sell.

i don't sell athletic equipment at all and i will never sell my rackets since i'm semi collecting rackets. main reason is because i know it's a sport that i will always want to play like billiard and cycling/mtn biking.
lastly, they mean more to me than a lot of other things, so why would i want to sell it if i have a wall to hang them and i'm not in need of cash for emergency or anything? hehe.

//HIJACK: which MTB you have in mind ? Found out this year, supposed OEM frames from the Taiwan factories are available on eBay ... don't really recall the reviews since I can't justify going up to carbon anyway ... or fully even for that matter. No interesting terrain in this country ...

i'm not a great rider, i just wanted the bike as stiff as i can get. i'm used to riding road, and i have one made out of steel, aluminum, and carbon. of course carbon is the stiffest, but i feel the most confident because i feel every bit of the road.
i ride the mtns once in a while when i get a group going, but the terrain is pretty good, unfortunately my skill level is worst in mtn biking than i am in badminton not that i'm trying to buy expensive equipment to be like my friends, but i do feel more stability/control and communicate quite well on a carbon frame

@gundamzaku, you said you are a normal adult, you date, cycling, motorbiking, weight lifting, photographing, play badminton and work 8 hours a day. plus you sleep at night too, I guess. Can you teach me how to manage all those activities without incidient since I only play badminton and golf and my wife still troubling me.

i've only taken my motorcycles to the track a couple of times back when my buddies were single. now they're all married so i'm the only one left with bikes, so mostly commuting to work. weight lifting is a ritual of mine (since 1997) that goes right after work i do photography mainly in the weekend since i can get up before sunrise to shoot the sunrise and other early morning stuff. cycling, mainly road is always saturday morning.
basically, if you look at my calendar, which i do mark down what i do each day, there's always some kind of sports activity. saturday is usually the most difficult day for me. an example, i wake up at a normal time, around 730, out with my road bike 8-10:30am. then back home, shower, rest a bit, go have dimsum with mother, then gym (weight train without cardio since i had cardio on my bike and will have cardio later with badminton)after 1:30pm till around 3pm. then back home and string a couple rackets, then small small dinner around 5pm, 6-10pm is badminton with father (for fun and noncompetitive).
Mon and Wed are easier days with just badminton and gym without cardio. Sunday is my lazy day, i don't anything, let my muscles relax, but i attend church . Tues and Thurs are badminton days from 11-2, lunch time then also gym at night but with cardio.
dating...i can do it any night i feel like, just skip badminton, but still go to the gym at a later time.

@gundamzaku, beside all the activities and you still have time roaming around in this forum spitting out long and logical sentences. I can say you are one of a kind.

@gundamzaku, what would you think if you play golf instead of badminton since golfing allow one to carry 14 clubs at any given time. You will need at least 14 clubs to test instead of 1 racket. I tried but give up.
