    Default broken racket!! ):

    so i come home today from a school badminton game and a broken racket of mines. ):

    i currently have a

    Yonex Nanospeed 8000
    Yonex Carbonex 30MS

    my Cab30ms happened to break. ):

    pictures are below,kinda blurry. i know this is a real racket, bought it at SGVBC a year ago.

    serial: 5677522 - 050852US

    So i guess im in search of a new racket. lookin for one thats around the $100 range, or better yet cheaper and that can perform as good as my cab30ms.

    please help me decide. thanks (:

    tension is like 24 lbs,

    i think i broke it cause i was either returning a really low smash and the racket hit the ground or i smashed the bird and my racket happen to hit the ground.

    not sure exactly, i was playing my 2nd doubles game and right when i smashed, i noticed that it kept going in wierd angles, then i look at my racket, and its broken.

    lookin to buy a new racket around $100 and want one almost the same feel as my nanospeed 8000. i am a very heavy attack player and prefer a type of iso racket.

    If US$100 is your range, then your best bet (based on your need) is another Cab30ms. In US market, it's around $100-120 range.

    i was thinking about getting another nanospeed 8000. i have a nanospeed 8000 3UG4, but another nanospeed would be too expensive for me.

    i came across this ebay store, http://stores.ebay.com/BadmintonStore and the store sells the NS 8000 for $145, which doesn't look bad. looks like its genuine too, correct me if im wrong please.

    It is 3UG5 and i have a 3UG4, what is the difference? says that the grip of a G5 is smaller than G4. will i feel a difference between these two in my performance of play?

    you should just bear in mind that tum98's racquets are TH coded ones, which means you won't have a warranty if it breaks due to manufacturer's fault, say. you'll have to send it back to thailand if that's the case.

    I believe the US coded racket has 12 months warranty for manufacture defect.
