<html>Hi,<p> I haven't been playing badminton since the new year and just retarted playing today. I noticed, when I was playing that my own racket(900 SA) dones't seem to be hitting properly, ie, smashes always hitting the ground like a kill shot, as if the doesn't bounce off the racket and clears not going far etc. But when I tried someone elses racket, I was hitting properly. Could it be that the strings have lost its moisture and elasticly which the strings became stiff? If it is, what other problems affect will happen when I play with the stiff strings?<p>Matt
