    Dear all, just to share a wonderful description from Mr. Loopy, about racket shaft stiffness.

    Mr Loopy Quoted :

    Generally speaking, choosing a racket with the correct shaft flexibility depends on how you swing your racket.

    We start from the principle that when a shaft is bent and then released, the stiffer the shaft, the faster it unbends (or straightens or unload...)

    When you swing the racket (let's say an overhead clear movement), the racket goes back, and then unleashes forward. At that transitional moment, the shaft bends. How fast you bend the shaft and how you do your forward stroke will determine what shaft you would need.

    If a player has a short fast explosive backswing and hit, he'd need a stiffer shaft as it will unload faster into the hitting area.
    If that player used a more flexible racket, the shaft will not have time to unbend, so that at impact, the shaft would still be bent backward (ie. instead of doing a smash, he'd be doing a clear...).

    On the opposite spectrum, someone with a more smooth slower accelerating stroke would need a more flexible shaft, so that it will unload fully at impact.
    If that same player used a more stiffer shaft, the shaft wouldn't have bended as much when the racket went to the back, and also, it woud have straightened prematurely before hitting the shuttle. Therefore he would have lost the benefit of the power generated by a stiffer racket.

    In conclusion, the more explosive swing player will benefit more of a stiffer shaft in terms of control and power. The more slower swing player will benefit more from a flexible shaft.


    Thanks Mr. Loopy.

    Hi edmund89,

    We have verified with Oon and he did not receive your sms, that's why no reply.
    So sorry that communication broke down.

    Oon will always reply all his sms enquiries.
    Recently there have been several people who feedback that they texted him but he did not receive. Apparently it's his network provider giving this problem. Oon has called the network provider and will get his sim card changed.

    Many apologies for that! Apologies also to those who have encountered this problem. You may check with us again if you would like to join us for the next session.

    Default Alternative if you could not reach Oon

    Apologies to those who did not manage to get Oon through sms.
    Recently there has been some network issues causing him not to receive sms from some people.

    If you have texted Oon and did not receive a reply within half an hour, you may:-
    1) Whatsapp Oon (for those who have whatsapp on their phone)
    2) Leave your contact in BC or PM me
    3) Sms Lydia@96919047 and she will divert the message to Oon.

    Hope this doesn't stop any passionate player from joining us!

    MEN - Please SMS Oon @ 98484723
    LADIES - Please SMS Lydia @ 96919047
