1. Bros : letsay compare Lin ning N90, N55 to Arch Z slash , which is better ?

Do you even have a Li-Ning already??

3. Arc Z slash has to be the funniest name.

z-slash definately better
23.22% more accuracy,
5.32% more power,
7.52% more agility,
8.65% more control
and 9.32% more speed !

5. ## doesn't matter which one you use ...

you must be better than your opponent in order to win ... Lin Dan can beat you with a wooden racket

6. Science (physics particularly) does not lie.

Speed = Distance / time

1. Distance = Distance travelled by the shuttle when it is smashed till it hits the next object (net, racket, opponent etc)

2. Time = Time taken by the shuttle when it is smashed till it hits the next object (net, racket, opponent etc)

Factor 1 & 2 are variable from racket to racket. Of course, a bus is definitely slower than a sport car but formula used to compute the speed remains the same.

To calculate the speed of the car.. wait til the car hit the next car or next wall?

With the measuring method Yonex used for their marketing, i.e. 3cm from hitting, if TBH could make 421Km/h, then with the same method, what speed can FHF make?

I assume, on average, the top players can make 310Km/h at maximum in play (if you want to check this, see the videos of 2005/6 WC).

Then, the equation is simple: 310:421 = 322: X

The calculation says that, under the same environment and equipment, FHF could make at least "437Km/h".

2. If you see the slow motion video on the Yonex site (Kawamae's shot), you can check the shuttlecock, in 3cm, stays with its feathers shrunken right after the hitting, which gives far faster speed.

When you measure the speed of a tennis serve, they measure the time elapsed during the complete flight from the hitting to the baseline. I understand we use different type of "ball" in badminton. So, we might need to define the measurement method for the speed "officially" to understand and compare exactly how much fast our sports is.

To take account the characteristics of birds, we may define the speed with various measures such as:

- the momentary speed; speed during the distance of 3cm or 15cm
- the speed to the net
- the speed to the court of opponents
- the speed to the baseline

3. The Speed War might be ignited among the vendors;

- LiNing might do the same thing with FHF, (Wow, 444Km/h)
- Victor might do it through JJS. (Hey, over 450Km/h, super-human record!)

Enjoy~

9. COngrats.

Today at the Yonex All England Ben Yoneyama, President of Yonex, announced to the world's media that the 421km per hour speed achieved by Malaysian Tan Boon Heong has been officially entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest smash in history.

10. I still say that Fu's smash during the 2005 Sudirman Cup is still the fastest since it was done during a game situation while Tan did this under a different environment so to speak.

12. unless someone comes up with a equation which includes all factors(eg. friction of the shuttle in air), this test will not be able to be recognised by everyone. when it states maximum, i would say that, it would be more accurate to measure over a smaller distance, or the distance covered in the shortest time measureable. only then u can get a most accurate answer.

since there is no globally accepted way of measuring shuttle speeds, comparisons between TBH and FHF's smash speeds are totally meaningless.

i personally, i think TBH shud partner with somebody else...

13. Lining or Victor will have another version soon I guess. Competition is good. Who can match him?

Hafiz hashim or LYD? lol.

14. what is the racket fu hai feng used during sudirman cup 2005 during that smash 332km/h?is it ti-10 2U or 3U?string BG65 or BG80? and tension is it 31lbs?just want to confirm...
