on another issue, i found a shop here in ipoh that sells fischer and pro ace rackets. but both racket are unfamiliar to me. anybody owns fischer racket?
the proace racket are unknown to me too. the racket have numbers like 883 and 6XX something. but i cant seem to find any info on it. the pro ace racket mentioned in this forum are usually the well known ones like sweetspot, and thunderbolt but nothing on the ones i saw. are those rackets good? there's a sale for the pro ace racket, RM179.00 and they will give me another one for free. which makes it like RM90.00 per racket. but i am not sure if it is a rip off. and the fischer, magnetic tour 83, would cost me RM249.00. but those racket are rated as flexible. i already have two flexible rackets. thought i might want to try medium stiff racket. any advice appreciated.

If you want light and flexible then Ashaway Ti130 should suit.

Differences in string gauge, string type and string tension can sometimes make a significant difference in the playability of a frame. Even tho' the stringbed density may appear to be similar for 2 rackets, the racket with the thinner strings will actually be less dense even if the pattern (proximity or closeness of the strings) is identical.
Also, thinner strings will tend to make the stringbed feel noticably stiffer. I'm not sure but I believe that thinner strings will also tend to transfer less power to the shuttle.
If, as you say, the string type & tension is already different between the 2 rackets, then this can account for some/much of the difference in playability and power capability that you've experienced. Note that, if you take your favorite racket and alter the string type & tension significantly, you may come to the conclusion that you hate your (favorite) racket. Collateral factors such as these (& others) can influence the perception that we have of a particular racket.
Wan't aware that Fischer made badminton rackets. They are an Austrian company that is highly respected for their skis and skiing equipment. More recently they've gotten in making tennis rackets & hockey equipment. Their tennis frames appear to be very popular with many of the European pros. (I believe that until 2 yrs ago many of their tennis frames were a collaboration with Gamma).
It's hard to say if Fischer badminton rackets currently have the same degree of excellence as their skis and tennis rackets. Perhaps they do. However with other manufacturers, we see that this is not always the case. It appears that Yonex put much more R&D and effort into badminton than tennis while Prince appears to favor tennis over their badminton line.
NE1 have any experience with Fischer badminton rackets?
