    @Dimcorner -
    Your old one was much better. On the new one, the features are too high up the face - it looks more like some kind of cat or something than a panda. It also doesn't have any personality - whereas the old one looked really aggressive.

    Me too. I'm no good in singles, I just can't move swiftly. And I've just figured out why it's like that. Usually when I hit the shuttle I will stand at the same spot, instead of getting back to my base, that's my weakness. I really need to work a lot on my footwork.
    Well I've finally stopped watching my own shots and move back to my base position quickly, but I tend to get low blood sugar when playing long matches. I'm probably still lacking some muscle mass - cant store enough energy, it seems. Playing no high backhand also takes a toll on the legs.

    Yeah, the old one had a certain dread feel about it. Like someone had woken up the beast halfway through its winter hibernation... one pissed-off Panda! LOL

    Gonna go to OCBC in a few and test some Ultra Pros with X2114 (aka ZM67 prototype). VTec101, you ready for us to come over?
    Was nice putting on shorts again but had to change again as forgot to take off my long underwear. So nice and warm with no snow or ice to deal with. In the Panda cave have a big room with a computer and even a bar to stay in. Bar is stocked with birds thou lol [really].

    Panda wouldn't let me play in the big box of rackets thou so I had to take a time out
    and read a car and driver magazine. If I am better behaved today he promises I can play with the Revelation prototype he has and other secret stuff.

    I have only been to OCBC once to watch the US Open about 6 years ago. I always wondered how it would feel to play on the cushy floors.

    Dan, is that a review of a badminton racket or the report card of an elite private school student?

    That's okay, we'll just wait for an unbiased review. Perhaps from ormy4, whom you've just saved -- just like Han Solo did for Luke Skywalker on the ice planet Hoth -- from a Winnipeg winter's fate. We can trust his opinion.

    who doesn't want a beast that loyal, and has good humour?
    oh wait, I would be in trouble if the racket can speak and behave,
    "hey, don't hit me too hard, it's hurt you know?"

    Default UK/EU Ultra Pro are here - and a Precision!

    Well, my shipment is here and will all but be gone in a couple of days, but a couple of rackets have ended up being up for grabs:

    Ultra Pro - 294/83 (this is tentatively reserved, but PMs welcome anyway);
    Precision - 285/84 (first come, first served). - 81 delivered to UK, ask about EU.

    Both are new.

    There are two or three TPro slots open, and the order will be going in at the end of the month.

    I too can't store enough energy, my left leg is the one which get tired easily, the right leg doesn't feel anything like this, but I never feel tired on the right leg. I've been why it is like this and I must admit that I don't have lots of stamina, I'd have worn up in 1 hour, but if I don't think about my stamina and enjoy the sport, I don't feel tired at all.

    Well, i was just praising my Trinity 2 a couple of days ago, and today it decided to fail on me... Just a normal stroke ( my first shot on the shuttle for the day) my trinity seems to break down. Initially i heard a "bang" from the sound of the shuttle, then i heard a crackling sound, and i witness my racket slowly cave in. the part whereby i cannot understand, is how could the break be so distinctive and straight. Here are the pics (tension of racket was tied at 25, with BG66)



    the impact from the cave in, caused 2 parts to cave in together

    that particular shot was good. not a mishit.. yup that paint chit was due to a clash which happens afew months ago. then out of curiosity to see if there is any sustainable damage to the frame, i dig a bigger "hole" with my nails to verify that there wasn't any hairline crack on it. so that explains y the paint "chip" was such a big one haha
