Thread: how to reduce vibration?
03-01-2006, 10:23 AM #18Originally Posted by Robbie
Adding a shock absorber to your badminton racket will reduce shock but make your racket feel numb. It will be much harder to "feel" skill shots, especially your net game.
Unless the vibration from the racket gives you pain or bothers you that much, I would not recommend using a shock absorber in badminton. On the otherhand, I encourage tennis players to use shock absorbers. It's a different game.

thats wat troubles me

That's the problem with older technology/older rackets, not as much vibration dampening. If you like the Ti10, try the Woven 7, it's similar. If you want to stick with Yonex... best to try them all.

I have extensively experience with the Woven 7 and Ti-10. Frankly, I still prefer the Ti-10 due to its relatively more conssitent static balance and unstrung and un-wrapped weight. Also, the grommet holes are drilled much straighter for the Ti-10 than the Woven 7. Have said that, Woven 7's woven graphite is stronger in handling sudden string break from mishits.

What about real world usage?

Unwrapped = no overgrip
Overall, it's just another racquet for me .

nehow, i play with a AT800DE as well and the vibration is
rather obvious if compare to my old RSL which has a much softer
shaft. My shoulder start to hurt after 2-3 hrs of usage, changing
the tension is the easiest one to do, when i step down form 25 back to 22 and the shoulder pain never comes back. performance changes a bit but hey, i rather be able to play good till 60 then tell yr friends how good i used to be before that arm sugury.

if ti10 is stiff, i think a med flex will be good enough
at800de is still stiff

I tried to put some vibration dampers inside the handle for my RSL 3000, but the result is not good.

This is a trick we used when we were kids. Get a regular rubber band and put it below the last string. It really reduce the vibration. However, it makes the string feel dead. I say DEAD! I would suggest you give it a try before you go out and buy a vibration damper. There is a reason why most of badminton company don't make one, because most of player want the lovin' feeling not "You lost that lovin' feelin'". It might not be the vibration hurting your arm, it might be the wrong string or wrong tension.

Precisely! This is what I meant. Is your rubber band also YONEX brand?

Are we talking about two different things here, frame shock and frame vibrations? Frame shock is different from frame vibrations.
Frame shock is the immediate unnecessary force felt at the instant of impact when you hit the shuttle. Iso racquets with their larger sweetspot and longer strings will suffer from less frame shock than oval racquets. But frame vibrations will be greater than oval's.
Frame vibrations are the vibrated feeling when the shuttle is sent away from your stringbed. Oval racquets have less frame vibrations than iso. So-called vibrations dampening devices do not reduce frame shock or frame vibrations; all they do are to change the audible noise from a ping to a damp thud.
If you are stuck with your racquet, try thinner string, lower tension, and giant size cushy grip!

1) rubber or PU grips
2) lower tension
