    Right now, its Halim Haryanto.

    But i think before, someone actually timed the smash, i remember it was previously held by Simon Archer. Then the record was taken over by Taufik Hidayat at something like 315km/h.

    Default Michael Lamp

    Halim Haryanto does have an exceptional smash, but I'd say his placement is better than the actual power. I'd say that Michael Lamp from Denmark has the most powerful smash, although his placement is nowhere near that of Haryanto's. Overall, Lamp has the most powerful strokes I've seen. (Which just goes to show that power won't take you all the way -- his pair is ranked #10 at the moment... he's lacking too much in other areas.)

    As to Taufik breaking Archer's record, well, a lot of people have done that, but Archer actually still holds the OFFICIAL record. Taufik's smash at 315 km/h that Byro mentioned was measured in Swiss Open if I remember correctly, and there were very few top players there... Plus, as I said, it was not an official record... I guess the IBF should put some more effort into this actually, it's good publicity-wise. And besides, it goes without saying that the hardest smasher should be a doubles player...

    Erhh..

    think Taufik's was just recorded 'as is' , not a so called record in the Guinness Book.


    I agree, having seem Halim Haryanto play 'live' I was absolutely amazed at his smashes !

    I was sitting some 5-6 metres behind Yudhi at the Singapore Open and I could actually hear the flight of the shuttle as well as the 'swoosh' of the racket from his smash. And the shuttle was almost like a ray of blur in flight !!!! And it wasn't once, but many, many times !! And another interesting thing is the sound he made at contact. There was no 'boom' or 'bang' but a sober 'piak' ... but the shuttle just flew off like a rocket and the rest of the 'sounds' from the shuttle flight and racket swing that followed .... !!

    Even top European doubles players like Soogard and Paaske looked pretty harmless by comparison !!

    If Tuafik hit 315 km/h, assumingly based on the hardest smash I saw him do at the Singapore Open, I would guage Halim's hardest one to be in the range of 350++ km/h !!


    Just my thoughts and observations. I believe Yudhi or Byro would have similar observations and agree as well.

    What raquet were they using at the time?
    That would definitely make a huge difference...

    Who are you referring to ?

    If its Taufik and Halim, both of them were using the MP-77.

    I feel very sad whenever I read one of your postings because:
    1. Everyone knows you're not Byro-Nenium
    2. You've posted so many similar things that it's not even shocking anymore
    3. You remind me of a little kid who has learned a dirty word and goes around repeating it over and over, except little kids usually get tired of it and do something else.

    Please grow up and find something better to do. You are wasting a perfectly good life.
