For navigation, a FrapprMap is better.
Red tombstone is where it's at. The slider thingy zooms about the centre, double click on the map to recentre view.

World Cup & Lee Chong Wei DVDOriginally Posted by yschin
I like the way you describe... the "rubbery" body movements of Lee Chong Wei.
Yes, he is definitely very nimble, agile, flexible and rubbery. hehehe...
And yes please... if I can have your DVD matches too.

So unless you visit Singapore, we may not be able to have a game together. But I'm sure Chris and his group will be most happy to have you join their very active, well-managed and up-and-coming club.
Hope to hear more from you or through Chris.

1-piece vs 2-piece stringing pattern
Hi Chris and everyone @CCC,
I just went to this new stringer to have my racquet restrung. My old stringer uses 2-piece stringing pattern (4 knots) but with the new stringer, he uses 1-piece (2 knots).
May I ask if anyone has any opinion on which one is better?? I know Yonex do recommend 2-piece (4 knots) stringing pattern and hence can have a different tension with main and cross. I've only played once after I have it restrung and can feel more vibration when I smash and my backhand's now gone flat.
Thanks in advance,

I don't find any different in 2-piece and 1-piece stringing in terms of playability. If you read through the "Stringing" section of this forum, some people claimed that 2-piece will last longer. This, you have to experiment yourself cos my smash is not powerful enough to break any string at the moment, whether it's 1 or 2-piece.
However, I find that by increasing the tension, I can feel more vibration and I need more power to get the shuttle to the back of the court.

Cheers and see ya tonight.
