I would define it as "a clash of two rackets when returning a smash with a soft sound of clash (not so loud)".
I was trying to share my friend's experience to this forum in order to let you all know that (i) I think the FB's frame is fragile and (ii) there is a precedent that someone claimed to Yonex for a cracked FB racket resulted from a clash and got a replacement for that for free of charge, in this case in Yonex Japan for a JP coded FB.

Sorry Everyone but apart from the topic, I have a question,,,,, Can anybody tell me how to detect/ensure that any racket is genuine or a fake??? I'm kinda new in this field... I mean I cant tell the difference between a genuine and a fake even though I have been playing for about 2 years (without any Coaching/training from a pro trainer) ... Here in Bangladesh I feel every single racket is a fake though many sellers claim them to be a genuine... Not only rackets but the strings too!!! Some people give tensions of about 26-30 Lbs in their rackets!!! is that even possible with a genuine Racket or string, where it is written on the body of the racket 24-26lbs?? Please some one help me out!!! And please add me up as friends!!! I want to know more and more about badminton and you people!!! PLease reply... Thanx....

The written tension is only the recommend tension...of course it is possible to string at a higher tension but doing so would void warranty. Fake rackets commonly have paint imperfections (yonex logo is too small or too large), butt cap is off-color, shaft too flexible, serial code is impossible, racket is too light, and price too low. I would recommend inspecting the racket in person, test the flex, inspect the paint/finish, and hit with it. Or if buying online, choose a reputable seller like mybadmintonstore.com.

Well part of the problem is that because he clashed. Clashing resulting in breakage ready so soon, sounds more like a player error than a racket problem. Sort of want to question the skill level of the player(s).
I am ordering a 5U for kicks to see how this racket is.

I've clashed mine a few times and banged it on the floor many times, not even a single paint chip. I think the speculation that these are more fragile than other rackets is because most people only report rackets breaking and there are a lot of others that aren't having any problems.
Anyways, when will the 5U be coming to the US? I'm eager to try one to see if it's better than the 6U. I really like it, but it's lacking a little in power.

Level does matter. One, can be a complete beginner and clash in a so called serious game. Sort of get the idea? Lets not forget to mention coordination between the partner, which indirectly involves skills.

Touch wood, had 2 minor clashes before when taking shuttles in mid court but no paint chip or sign of cracks. Loving it and planning to try out the 5U version too.

I am sure, we have not heard from pro players saying, oh a particular racket it is too fragile because of a clash.

Hmm, quite interested in getting one of these. But wondering how it plays compared to the Arc11 and also the NR800.
Currently using RKEP XP70 and XP80 and they're already pretty quick rackets but for me, lack the oomph.

Haha... if you think your XP's lack power, man are you in for a surprise with the FB...
What are your specs btw, as mine are 87g/295mm and they are just right for me in terms of power and speed for fast doubles.
04-14-2013, 11:32 PM #371
83g 295mm. So it's the weight then! I should go heavier rather than lighter, right?
