    Default good reason

    Came back to badminton after many years of not playing, bought AT700, not bad, but just didn't feel right. Had carltons before, but only had one I liked and now obviously discontinued. Kept looking, now gone back to Carlton, some cheap deals on Ebay. Satisfied again, wouldn't change racquets unless I broke enough of the 4 that I bought!!!! In fact, should I buy some more!!!???!!?

    Because some spannerhead of a beginner hit my racquet right in the middle of the shaft with his own racquet and it's been wobbly ever since. Just got some nice new strings for it, hopefully that'll extend the lifespan a bit longer.. but I've been hankering for a Karakal M Tec 70 for a whie, and now an Arc Saber 10 ever since I hefted one over at the All England.. absolutely beautiful racquet in terms of feel.

    ...because it is not the problem with racket but the problem is the player who is no bloody good and so no rackets can help.....take e.g. lightweight and drifit clothing reduces sweat and drag and a player feels lighter and can run faster...well, if a lousy player play naked i.e. no drag, the game is still lousy...come to think about it, how can a naked player perform a LD jump smash, that would be awkward...

    You guys/gals are so lucky and blessed to be able to add/replace new rackets as if it is the flavour of the month and money is no object...my time, we share playing one set of rackets among friends and if the string broke, we restring just that broken string and keep playing, we poolshare the birdie and play the birdie until the feathers are broken...no proper badminton court, just draw the line of the ground with a stick, a makeshift net, and most times barefoot, no proper shoes...those are the 60's in MAS of a humble and carefree beginning which develop our work ethic and appreciation for $$$ and we have just as much fun when we knew so little of tension, grip, latest racket technology, etc. The prices of the rackets now eg LN, Nano 9000, and shirts costing >S$90 there is no way we could even dream of owning one, let alone more. Count your blessing. Sure, I can buy anything I want now but I just could not understand why?
