Have you tested your smash speed
this week end during a competition there was a man with a radar to test our speed. www.testyourspeeds.com the both record are done by my girlfriend and another member of my club.
me i did 130 that not my best but i'm still i the average
did someone else know his speed

130 what? Miles per hour? Kilometres per hour? Metres per second? Live chickens per initiation ritual?
I'm guessing that it's one of the first two
I also seriously doubt the accuracy of these measurements, if a 17 year-old boy in your competition can achieve a smash that is only 8 mph slower than Simon Archer's world record

I think they are in mph as some data shown in their website.
The lady smashes are about 20-30 mph slower from their experiments.
They must got a very good radar gun as consumer type guns are accurate to around 110 mph or wouldnt detect light and less reflective object like a shuttle. Maybe they were using plastic shuttles. LOL

I don't really know the accuracy of the radar but it worth 5000 $ us and it's in MPH. yes we used plastic shuttle ( normal speed) no trick. and yes the 154 mph smash was very powerful
