    After all, making a racket is a combination of a mold, and material that is used. Using voltric materials in a FB mold would make it impossible to distinguish from a photo alone...
    I simply cannot accept #1 - he's playing 34/36.

    Got to agree with Mark. At that tension, I'm surprised it doesn't implode every time he smashes.

    Well seriously guys, sceptics or not, Carsten Net shots and net block improved a lot! Just go and look back at the 1st matches with the FB, slower smashes, and shaper at the net, I say it is legit~

    Wanted to add I also happened to come across another male "pro" using the FB and you can be pretty sure he isn't supplied with special rackets: (normally) Slovak national MS (and currently MD) champion Jarolim Vicen. Still proudly wielding a Voltric ZF 12 months ago but currently playing with FB ... (and ARC10 before VTZF)
    Of course a whole different level but just to illustrate it is not an entirely unthinkable switch.

    Not surprising. If your basic technique is "B grade" or above (and you're stronger than a 5 year old hehe), you can play with any (top tier) racket effectively.

    I dare you to make better ones, but no more on this post. I think we are starting to go way off topic by now.

    BTW, I JUST CRACKED MY Z FORCE 2012 LIMITED 4U JUST NOW!!!!!!!

    I am seriously in tears... It was one of the most beautiful and best rackets around!

    But on the other hand, I got a new excuse to try out the new Z Force II

    I also strung my FB at 30lbs bg66m, while the frame is ok, the string broke.
    Then I lowered to 29lbs, and everything goes right.
    Fb plays pretty good at high tension compared with low tension like 26lbs or lower.
    My FB is 5u version. I'm not very confident about the 6u version to take on 30lbs.

    I've strung Flashboosts up to 30 lbs a couple times (including mines) and none of them have broken yet.
