    The future design and technology of badminton rackets is right here:




    That is, unless I eat it first.

    sotx marswood had a similar system. small grains of metal (steelsand) where forced up the hollow shaft when you swing fast enough ('centrifugal force' if it exists) But stay in the bottom when you swing slower (defence) due to the slowness of mass.

    the result: rinkeling shafts, and unstable performance. Because: there'll be a midline where you just don't swing fast enough to get it headheavy and too fats for a headlight.
    Basically it's like playing with two different rackets, unknowing which one it is when you hit...
    I didn't know that such racquets really exist! But I don't like the idea of the sand in the shaft - it would be too slow to move up and down... And how did the sand go back do the handle after the stroke?
    I would have two solutions for decreased control:
    1. the system could be manual - when you would see that the oponent cleared, you could set the swingweight with the finger near the handle (move the weight in the shaft to the head) and smash.
    2. if it would be automatically as I suggested in the first place (with the spring) then there could be another similar system in the handle which would push another weight to the bottom of the handle, so the balance point would not change but the swingweight would! Maybe would be more controlable in this way... The weights should be very light (just a few g) so that you wouldn't feel this too much. But of course, it would have to get used to such racquets...

    And DinkAlot - if they will start to produce "natural" bamboo racquets, they will open another "forum" besides "feather or plastic" where people would argue about which racquet gives more natural feeling.

    I would say a modular system hahah. Like you could add or remove parts for swing weight/ balance and feel.

    why not make the racket automated. a switch to change the balance point. maybe a small button on the handle. press to change balance point. something like F1 technology. heheheheee. a button on the steering to change gears. wouldn't that be something! but i think the racket will be heavier.

    haha why not just implant a badminton chip in your head. then when u wanna play with another person, all you need to do is stare into each other's eyes and activate those chips. the two of you will be in another dimension playing virtual badminton so it would be more to a battle of minds than bodies.

    Kind of like a lightsabre, only it won't burn the shuttle upon impact,
    You mean..this?

    Nice picture kuan84! But the use of the force wouldn't be fair otherwise the racquets wouldn't be needed at all!
