    I started with Ti-5 when i feel like I'm starting to like badminton. Then I changed to NS7000 becuz it looked nice and someone told me I can fly with it. Then I continued on with ns700 trying to fly. When one day, I tried to fly with full power, the racket quickly kissed my knee, it made a "crick" sound and I sent it to it's grave. While using a racket named "Dream" from I-dunno-what-brand, I finally got the At900t becuz...well....it's light...it's nice...it's expensive...it's the top racket...and...it gives sausage...so I bought it...didnt like it much though but kept playing for a month while waiting for my ArcSaber7 to arrive. I bought ArcSaber 7 becuz it looks killer, it's the newest racket and becuz it looks freaking killer. Tried it for the first day and I have to say...it's great xP. I then released my at900t into the air and into the bag, sealed and played with ArcSaber7 until now. Whahahahah now I can be even more baka with my Arcsaber7!! bewareeee one day I'll fly with it!!!

    My reasons to buy a new racquet:

    -"My current one is not good enough"
    -"I buy a new racquet every year anyway"
    -"That racquet's on 40% discount!!!!"

    I can see smoke, possibly fire, from your backside.
