    Unless you're using exactly the same measuring equipment, it's not a fair comparison.

    One reason that faster smashes have been recorded in recent years is that the players are hitting harder. But another reason is that the measuring equipment is getting better.

    These radar guns measure instantaneous speed of the shuttle leaving the smasher's racket. They do not measure the average speed of the shuttle as it travels from smasher to defender (or floor ).

    Smashes decelerate extremely rapidly, due to the high air resistance of a shuttle. So if you have a better radar gun, which takes a measurement fractionally earlier, you will get a faster measurement.

    there was a little competition at the all england, and they had a radar gun with the z slash and arc 9 ... the place they had it held was so small and the shuttles was of course plastic not feather (due to durablity). good idea, but the space and feeder was a let down.
    good event though to get people together

    Bring your own feather then ! I guess an Arc Z slash will do , since it is only a smash I will be hitting....

    one of my friends who has the fastest smash i've ever seen( sounds and looks amazing) got it measured at some international tournament he watch, if i remember rightly it was 172kmh :P i he won the comp and got a free t shirt, he beat a kid in my county in it, he got 127kmh and he might just have a slightly faster smash than me, so mine will be about 110-120 kmh:P so like a third of the speed of fu's smash lol :P
