    Oh... it must be the difference between a Li-Ning racket and a Yonex racket + the Ti 10 is so crappy in comparison to the new nanospeed
    Ohh .. you got him down on all fours now.

    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...

    RAJES PAUL reports from ODENSE

    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.

    No, during an out of match testing session. Presumably using the same flawed measuring technique used previously with the ZS.

    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.

    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

    Is it the speed when the shuttlecock leaves the racquets

    or

    the moment just before the shuttle hit the ground??

    Or

    the average of the two.

    ...
    The two previous fastest speeds were 332kph (Fu Haifeng of China) and 414kph (Naoki Kawamae of Japan).

    ..it was done during an out-of-competition testing; not during a match. If not, mistaken, there is another thread which discusses abt this news.
    That 421 km/h must probably be recorded when the shuttle left the racket. Different than the one recorded for FHF.

    Whats the point of having fancy titles like being the best dressed, having the biggest gold bracelet or hardest smash??

    We need to get our priorities right instead of being intoxicated with shallow accomplishments.
    Better than nothing bro.

    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).

    Just because Fu is no longer sponsored by Yonex, they just try to give out some info (in favour of a player sponsored by Yonex) that is measured completely different from the past to come up with a ridiculous number.

    Very soon, we will hear that a shuttle can travel at a speed so fast that it will penetrate through a human's body if it hits the person, and we will have a high mortality rate in the sport of badminton.

    All the "speed" is recorded when the shuttle left the racket. Otherwise we would see many people die in badminton matches.

    I think KKK is going downhill. He is not as fast as before (or as he believes himself to be).

    Let's pair TBH up with Hendra Setiawan. That pair should be able to beat the crap out of any other pair.
