I had my asics for 1,5 season, which is too long, so they lost all support and grip on court. But I still do them to do sports outisde, I don't want my shb 101 to get dirty. So I still go running or ropeskipping with my asics.
I'm also not really used to the shb 101 yet, and got a giant blister from them. So I'm breaking them in really gentle.
yes, the shuttles... I have different kinds of shuttles at different times.
Just testing them out. Also, I'm not very rich, so usually the yonex ones are too expensive at 17€ or more for one tube.
The victor queens aren't that bad, but not excellent. Kinda liked the mars diamond, they are also not so expensive... But a little bit slow of you ask me.
nevertheless good for training or matches for fun.
Next kind I'm gonna buy is RSL tourney 1, found a shop nearby that sells them at 14€ for a tube. Still pretty expensive (do you guys get them cheaper?) but I think they will be good.
anybody got experience with the rsl tourney 1?
So, now show us your bag

Hey Tower, what a nice room you have. Feel so fresh when staring at the marine blue(with white lining) colored wall. Hmmm... seems to match your fav white/blue yonex shirt..!

My badminton Bag
Ok here's an overview photos of whats in my bag : (Badminton clothing and shuttles i did not include them)
Here's the list:
1 unit of Bag - Yonex JP version BAG802AI (My new bag!)
5 units of rackets - Zelm Trixon 8
(From left to right) Yonex AT900T SP
Yonex Arc Z Slash SP
Yonex MP55 SP (my old faithful) 1 Unit of Yonex SHB100 LTD shoes
1 unit of Li Ning Badminton shoes (I swap them every week)
1 unit of APACS anti slip grip powder
1 Roll of Yonex Super Grap racket grip (for 3 rackets)
1 pair of scissors
1 Roll of electrical wire bind tape (I never use the grip's tape for my racket. Rather i finished off my grip with the electrical tape which to me is fantastic)
1 Sigg Water bottle
1 paper fan. (Very very handy during small interval between matches to reduce your sweating )
3 racket cloth bags
Some plastic bags (To put my dirty laundry of course)

i thought the paper fan is solely for a picture-perfect shot until i read it's purpose. no offense, but aren't the arenas airconditioned and the towel handy?
10-28-2009, 08:37 PM #880
Paper fans are in the trend in Singapore as well. I have seen players as young as 15-16years old, whip out a paper fan in-between games. It used to be a very uncle thing 2year ago, but not now. It is the smart thing to do now.
I even had a fan lesson by an uncle before. The uncle has a cloth fan from China, which he paid quite an amount for it. It has an extra whip at the end. He told me, "small input, big output!"

The towel is indeed handy, but after you wipe yourself dry, try the paper fan, it works wonders.
And to Sgbad, i learnt this in China and it is definitely Not an "Old man/Uncle" thing to do here.....though i would like to learn from your old man you mentioned hahahaha

pardon my ignorance but the fact that i play tennis (outdoor, that is, of course) more is due to the fact that i hate air-conditioned 16 or 8 court arenas and even smaller 4 court halls. it kills my workout purpose, to sweat it out (aside from the obvious reason that i like the game).
as for the paper fan, i don't think its an uncle thing--well, eventually we are gonna turn into uncle in due course if we continue to love playing this game until we hit our ''uncle years'', won't we? btw, what age is uncle years? ha ha.
10-30-2009, 11:36 AM #883
Uncle years would be 40-50years old?
10-30-2009, 12:05 PM #884
and after 50? qualified for gramps?
