    Maybe we can call that as re-cylcing.

    Central sports in coventry repaired a Carlton Airblade superlite i used to play on,.. the repair was spot on,.. racket took the same tension as it always had and played the same,.. even restrung it for me,.. all in for 40.

    Shame it broke 2 months after on the opposite side of the break!

    Im wondering if there is anything in the laws of badminton stating that "upgrading" your racket is legal?

    I don't think so,.. as far as i know you can play on whatever you want,....It would make stringing/ grommeting your racket problematic wouldn't it,... and changing grips etc, Heavy mods,... I doubt there's a rule against it.

    The only rule concerning the racquet is that it should not exceed a certain amount of length for the shaft, handle, frame ( length and width ), etc. Weight and stuff matters absolutely not.

    I think i have posted the review of my hybrid racket.It's head heavy,n the balance went up to 31cm.Good for smashing or offensive plays..but too bad since i mostly play double,i can't really use the racket,since it'll wear me down..

    If u r seeking for the same feeling n playability,u better buy another one.Don't wanna spend to much money on it again?Maybe u can go for the 2nd hand NS8K.Cos this experiment wont help u with that.

    But if u think that u don't wanna just throw it away.Maybe make it ur 2nd racket,or ur practice racket,then maybe u can do it.Because after u do so,u'll feel that it's heavier than b4.

    40GBP is almost enough to buy an MP ltd here.Way too expensive!Mine only costs around 8 GBP which includes the new frame,outer t-joint,installation,restring,NBG95.Strung it at 26lbs,n still last up till today...

    Yeah...

    If the head (racket) come loose while smashing and hit your opponent's head.
