    I need a new one because I've gotten better and discovered that my play style that doesn't match the racket I have atm.

    Originally I voted "a little bit of everything above". But then realised it wasn't really, it just boiled down to one thing that wasn't on the list.

    Curiosity.

    I'm actually very content with my current BS10 (more than could be said for my older 8DX). It does almost everything I want it to or could want from a racket besides one thing, it lacks a tad bit on power. I guess due to the lack of weight in the head or general lightness of the frame design. Who knows. But, why did I order an MX80? Curiosity. I am curious to see if the MX80 can offer enough of the qualities of the BS10 whilst still offering that tiny bit of extra power I want, but don't really need. My gut is telling me what I'll gain in power I'll lose in control, speed and precision, but who knows.

    One thing's for sure....curiosity didn't kill the cat, it killed the wallet!

    Though we all at some point find/found our optimum racquets, there's always this yearning for the next, biggest, baddest of them all out there to be discovered.

    like said, its normally curiosity.. however.. i think there is a time where you actually find the racket you are most comfortable with.. there after its just 'i want the newest racket etc....'

    Recently: because my preference changed, in a totally unexpected way (who would've thought I'd ever like the Z-Slash??)

    Because all my rackets are a looker so I figured I'd get myself a Kimoni NP 5000, a no frills fully woven racket (hope it plays good enough)!

    I have 2 hands, but only use right hand to play badminton. yet my badminton bag packs 8 rackets, while another 7 rackets were hanging in my room. And now i'm still considering to buy another racket. The question such "why do i need new racket" had crossed my mind long ago when i decided to buy my second racket! Yet i can never find the answers for this question. All i ever blame was "damn all these racket marketing campaigns!" If i were to sell out all these 15 rackets on their market values, i could've paid off my honeymoon trip to Hawai, plus half of the ticket price from Asia! Too bad i don't own Ti-10 (1st & 2nd gen), AT700 (1st gen), MP 99/100... or else i would've been a little richer by now!
