Maybe Tan Boon Heong and Naoki Kawamae are only able to perform the hardest smash during the testing session, but Fu Haifeng is performing it during the match...

MALAYSIAN doubles shuttler Tan Boon Heong was on a high after being hailed as the world’s hardest smasher but Mohd Hafiz Hashim was down after being dumped in the second round of the Denmark Open yesterday.
It was made official yesterday that Boon Heong now holds the fastest speed record for a smash at 421kph, which was recorded in the Japan Open in Tokyo last month.
And bouyed with the acknowledgement, the 22-year-old Boon Heong is inspired to continue taking his game to a higher level.

These figures cannot be compared to previous figures for other rackets as a totally different way of measuring is used - measuring only the first couple of cms from the shuttle hitting the racket. See thread on ZS racket reviews for more details.
Since this is a flawed system of measurement, sorry but nobody can claim any world record. Just put it down to Yonex marketing.

ic.wow that clears things up.=p

i wanna see Fu hai feng try beating that :P

Yup no harm for yonex even though he is not with yonex anymore. It's still marketing for yonex if he uses yonex rackets.=D

That 421 km/h must probably be recorded when the shuttle left the racket. Different than the one recorded for FHF.
Here is the news (start w/post #1015):

If cant win the majors, at least got something to be proud of.
They are still young. I believe, as what BAM believe, they can do it, they can win majors. All we have to give them is confidence, time, and chances.
When a player like HH can still MAS 2nd MS, nothing is impossible.

Your first paragraph is not reasonable...
The speed checked in a test condition would definitely be much faster than those in a real match. Because in a test condition you can measure the speed earlier, due to the fact that you know where and when the racket will hit the shuttle. And we all know how quickly a shuttle slows down once it leaves the racket.
In fact, such measurements are kind of meaningless if not done under the exact same situation. For example, in 1997 AE, DJ's smash is recorded at 199km/h. Can we conclude from this that DJ is not as powerful as Zhang Ning, whose smashes reach 230km/h? Of course not. The major reason ZN has higher smash speed should be the improvement of speed-measuring machines. Newer machines can catch the shuttle at earlier times than old ones, and thus show much higher speeds.
Maybe we should set up two records: FHF holds the record in a real match, while TBH holds the record in test situation (of course, many people believe it will be broken once FHF decides to try such a test himself).
