    Arent the virbration comes from bad hitting technique .. ?

    Days ago ,i tried to hit flat drives with a light racket (4U) even balanced ,
    i tried to wack it very hard, and i do not do much sweet spot clean hit... after the session ....experience some sore around eblow area, like tennis eblow .

    well, bad / improper technique cause much virbrations ....y for the need of changing the personal prefrence.

    The equipment is good, just the ugly technique ,need to polish ...

    badminton is a sport where u impact the bird with yr racket

    vibration transfered down to your arm is guranteed. U can play with
    softer racket shaft, lower tension if that feeling doesnt fit yr style.
    But some ppl like that as it gives you the "FEEL"

    Like a racing car with strong spring and dampers. strengthen yr car in corners
    but u can expect a super bumpy ride as well. Speed freak love it as it gives you the FEEL for the road. I say give me a Mercedez cos i like my ride to be
    quiet and comfie.

    Depends on your needs, pick the racket that fit your style.

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.
    great idea. i tried before but it took out too much feel
    it's amazing how a small innocent rubber band can cut down the vibrations

    Improving your stroke timing will reduce the vibration to manageable level. A relaxed poise not only gives the best control, but also the potential for unleasing the hardest shot. Only one way I know for consistency.

    look for tennis grips, head protector or babolat air touch are marketed to reduce vibration(s)

    head protector advertised to even help tennis elbow too

    well, i'm taping this on the strings actually.
    center 4 or 6 mains, one to two strings from the bottom.

    there was a thread about how taping the strings created a really loud snappy sound upon striking the shuttle. its really cool. but i noticed it was also reducing vibration. its fun to try out.

    I'm using an Arc10 strung with NBG 95s at 23x25, and I am still feeling far too much vibration for my liking... mind you I am using the original yonex grip that came with the racket... Any other ideas to reduce vibration?

    My old racket; Fleet Tank power 100 offensive, I usually strung with 23x25 BG65 with a fleet grip, had practically no vibration at all.

    Put on a soft grip.

    If that doesn't work, then change back to bg65 strings because it's softer feel.

    Ah ok, in that case, what kind of soft grips do you recommend? We don't have too much of a choice here in Australia, would the Yonex Super graps be ok?

    Super graps would be a good start.

    This might sound ridiculous, but this is what I tried two years ago on a 3U AT700.

    I put plasticine (modelling clay) inside the hollow part of the handle. (It made the racquet bottom-heavier of course)
    The plasticine worked as a damper to reduce the vibration coming from nbg95 at 28lbs (too high for me back then), and the added weight made the shots feel more powerful and solid. I don't do that anymore though, because the TC700's handle isn't hollow
