I actually have 2 TD rewards cards...
A travel rewards and a rebate one. Since I use my travel rewards one for work I usually get a free trip to Hawaii every other year for my whole family.
I use my rebate one (much lower limit) to buy online... that's the one that's in shock right now.

Actually, no I don't own a store, sometimes my hobby room does look like it though. I like to try both the 3U and 4U of rackets that I will probably end up keeping, some I like in 3U and others in 4U. Sometimes I sell the one I don't like and other times I don't. The AT900T is another racket I have in both 3U and 4U. I only have a BS10 in 4U and since I really like it, I might have to get a 3U from Eric one of these days.

I guess it's just a matter of perspective... but... when I was in engineering school I once lived in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 other guys (and no none of us were gay ) and I put gas in my 10 year old beater car $5 at a time. 10 years later and it's a lot different.
Now our combined household income is pretty high so I can afford my toys. (helps that I just got my tax refund check and after buying all this I still have a bit left over).
Also, based on the 3-4 guys on the "how much do you make" poll that chose $100K a month... I'm nowhere near the most afflluent person on here... (ya, I know they probably meant to choose a year not a month but still funny).

I know exactly how you feel. I stopped fishing regularly and shifted the expenses to badminton. Fly fishing equipment can be so much more crazy and lures cost are like you change your badminton strings every half and hour. Same like a game of golf a fishing trip can let you play badmint+ shuttles a year!
But end of the day I still get stingy with the grips which is cheapest in the whole badminton hobby lol

I think I spend too much also on on my badminton gear. Although I wish I could play more then twice a week to get my moneys worth . On average, I think i spend close to RM2000/USD645/euro470 a year buy rackets, bags, shoes, clothing and other accessories. I've been playing baddie for the pass 20 years and only the passed 5 years I decided to go crazy on my badminton gear spending. Overall my expenditure for my badminton has been more expensive then my golf games (I play very little golf now but have a very expensive golf set collecting dust)
But I must say i love my badminton a lot and the reason I spend too much money on it is because I just enjoy it. It makes me feel good even if I lose most of my games

Ok so I measured my rackets and also 1 more that my friend left with me for stringing and here are the prestringing weights and bps
Arcsaber 8dx wt=88.8g, bp=289mm
VT80 3U wt=89g, bp=305mm
VT80 4U wt=83.2g, bp=306mm
VT80 4U (2) wt=84.6g, bp=308mm
MX80 3U wt=87.3g, bp=288mm
MX80 4U wt=85.6g, bp=295mm
Once I have them all strung I will provide those as well.

Thanx. Looks like 3U and 4u vt80 bp is in tight range but wt is drastically different.
