    Anyhow, blisters are a sure sign something isn't right with your technique as the racket shouldn't move in your hand so much that it causes blisters. In my experience, overgrips (especially Yonex) are pretty easy on the hands, although I can't say the same the other way around (having used my Mx80 and Trinity 2 most of the time for 2 weeks, both grips have more than one spot where I'm close to touching the base grip ).

    I don't know how helpful this is but I'd suggest you have someone qualified take a look at your grip and overhead swings


    Having gotten my testing version of the ArcFB today, I'd say white is the best grip color. Lime green would be better, but I seriously doubt you're gonna find towel grip in that color (even overgrip should be hard to come by^^). Yellow BG80 should look nice on it.
    Sorry, I meant to say the default grip. I've never had blisters whether I used an overgrip or a towel grip. So white grip and yellow strings or how would white grip and white strings look like?

    Does BG85 come in yellow?

    There is nothing you could do to that racket to make it look respectable.

    Actually......I'd go all-red. Red Ultimax and red grip. If forced at gunpoint. Or black grip because of the cone.

Red also an option looking at it again having recovered from the early shock , better possibly). New stencil opportunity though: Golden Arches

    [ Barca vs Bayer]

    Completed the racket with matching outfit in red and yellow attire and a pair red shoes...

    Best if the player has a red afro. It will be fantastic!

    Adidas Badminton has launched in New Zealand. We are one of the first countries to get the gear. Excellent racquets to play with. Footwear is pretty good too.

    Not for a few months I believe, mid-summer perhaps. Not in this current season:
