    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?

    yes. if you brake the shaft so its just the handle. then get some string and weights you can tie the string around the weights and the handle then roll up the weights with your hands above your head. Thats how i got a strong hit

    ohhh too many reasons for buying new racquet. my reasoning(the logical side) i see a new technology in materials, racquet design and i wanna try it. and it asia there's no shop that'll lend u the racquet for a day to test(in london they do, decathlon). i dont normally collect them...if i find they completely dont fit me, i'd sell them off for 20 to 30% off. theres quite a liquid market for used racquets on this site. it also motivates me to go play more often....

    I buy new racquets because they inspire me to play more often. I look upon it as an investement, not in a racquet, but in my health.

    And is it really so much money? Do you know the cost of a set of golf clubs? I have a friend who has 4 sets!
