    Guy, there is a thing call clear shipping tape. Just cut a long thin strip with same width as your frame.

    Default Using sticky tape as frame protection?

    Has anyone tried using clear sticky tape to prevent paint chips? If you pull off the tape will the paint also pill off?

    I just use black conduction tape. I usually put two to three layers of it to try to make my racquets head-heavy. Oh.. and I also do that to hide all the paint-chips on the frame

    Not scratching your precious badminton racquet........is it really important? Come on man, just enjoy the game. It sounds silly to me to go to the extent of taping the racquet. For goodness sake ,it's just a piece of equipment for you to utilise. I don't have any objection on taking care of not breaking or denting it. If you are going to that kind of extent, you are missing the whole picture.

    How are we 'missing the whole picture' just by taping the racquet frame..
    For some people like me, they're not 'just a piece of equipment'. So, different story.

    Well, to each it's own. I'll rather focus on the game. I got nothing more to comment on this. If my comments sounds offensive to you, I apologize. Cheers.

    I taped the frame with the useless Yonex finishing tape which comes with every YY grip I buy. My AT700 is like a table-tennis racquet now O_o

    i noticed on my racket that after a while when i pick up the shuttlecock with my racket the paint wears out or chips. Does anybody also have that problem? I think it is the way how i pick up the shuttlecock.

    Default brands???

    what brand of eletrical cable did u guys use?

    i tried unibell, dun have written origin though
    guessed should be locally made in indo

    it wasn't good, the glue can't realli hold
    and it left a considerable amount of glue
    when you took it away

    just changed to 3M Scotch Super 33+ Electrical Tape, seems better
    the price is (RP13,000) for 66ft long 150% more exp than unibell
    hope it won't disappointing

    branded ones like yonex and mizuno is way too exp
    yonex is 800 yen for 5m long

    you can try babolat brand, but adding some tape will screw the balance point of your racket, and makes your arm tired easier
