    Your enthusiasm is healthy, however there is a limit.

    Anyway, Have been curious about the li ning brand for sometime now and would love to find a way to buy; (cheapest) recommended legit store.
    I have read this thread and was wondering whether bbe ship to Uk.
    Any other recommendations to previous experience would be most appreciated

    Thanks in advance
    MBS has a sale on the N90 right now, but if you want other N series you have to go to badmintonshoponline or e78 and any other LN stuff, bbe is the only way to go (i think e78 started selling a couple of the bags too)

    Hmm this white paint exercise tops it all. I think this enthusiasm has gone to the point of moronic absurdity.

    Hmmm well.. If that placebo effect can affect, or perhaps improve ones performance/feel then why not?

    Placebo effect can be rather strong on the human mind.

    Ha ha ha, I thought I have seen it all and hear it all but this one really top it !

    Definitely a good x'mas cheer up for me !

    Come to think of it, I think the US army or any army in the world should paint the top of their tank white, it will made the armour stiffer !

    Regardng white tape on top of frame..

    I used to use some protective tape (think it was SOTX who delived this tape) on the top of the frame, when you scrape the head to the floor diving or digging late at the net, it is kind of nice to protect the frame from scratches :-)

    Also having this tape may make it easier for LD to quickly know which racket are his when returned in a heap from the stringer :-)

    cheers,
    T

    It may or may not be due to the placebo effect, depending on the weight of the paint. Any weight from as little as 0.1 g at the tip of the racquet top will have a discernable effect on its playability. This is due to an increase in swingweight which has a more multiplier effect at the tip of the racquet than at any other locations. As you go down towards the handle the effect diminishes. As you go sideways at the 3 or 9 o'clock sites it becomes ponderous from higher drag. But the side effects of adding weight to the tip of the racquet are reduced maneuverability, not better.

    He used a white marker on a 1cm area, off-centre at the top left, yet magically every stat except forehand non-jump smash improved as well as increasing the stiffness of the racquet .

    err... stomping your right foot on the ground when u smash is not considered a 'jump smash'. i've seen you play, ferret.

    what next after applying white paint on your racket head? maybe you would like to stick a scotch-tape across your strings to 'improve the smashing power tremendously' ie. make the hitting sound loud as hell. so far, i've seen 2 clowns did this and i swear i could hear them playing from a mile away.

    Have you tried red paint? I've heard that has a better effect.

    lin dan does not paint his racket at all. he applies athletic tape to the top of the racket. We can see it on his Li Ning N90 and Armortec 700.

    the ferret has been blacklisted from most groups in SG. not becoz he's too good like Lin Dan.
