    Yep and watch out for Kelvin's sneaky attack clear and backhand smash. But I think the opponents will have more of a chance with the NSS. If it was the OSS, it would not be fair. John and Kelvin could just play defense all day. :p

    Well, even with the NSS, it will be hard to get through them since they are both very consistant. That's the name of the game with the NSS.

    Tourney was fun to attend although i didnt do as well as i wished, im happy with my 1st tourney performance.

    I got to watch a lot of strong players such as coach alex and mona. I was a little curious about a few things i saw. One was in the middle of mona's first match, her opponents changed shuttles and tested it first, hitting it from the back court. After that mona's partner (shu?) picked it up and said "Every other?" and began to bend/break everyother feather. I saw this earlier on center court but the girl didnt announce it first (cheating?). She simply did it. Beside me i over heard a guy say "Shes too slow, the birds too fast for her...[bend out = slower, bend in = faster]."

    Is this standard? I have a feeling in Mona's case it was legit cause they both agreed but why not just use a faster/slower shuttle than break feathers?

    Mona was playing with either Aaron Huynh aka "Crazy Man" or Howard Shu.

    Yes, it's standard. The reason why they do this is to make the speed of the shuttle "standard" or consistent. If the shuttle is too fast or too slow, it messes with your timing and feel.

    The reason why they adjusted the shuttle instead of using a new one that had the correct speed is one of the following:

    1) The shuttle is fine in terms of flight and performance, just the speed is off. Folding the feather doesn't effect the performance, will just slow it down; meaning the shuttle is fine.

    2) Each team has to supply shuttles. Shuttles get expensive. If you don't mind shelling out the money, request to use your own shuttles period. But of course the opponents have to agree to that.

    Very brief recap..

    ..of the Finals..Not to undermine the other events, but IMO, only 2 were worth-watching..:p

    Funky doubles - James Huang & Chris Ngu defeated Mona Santoso & Howard Hsu in 3 titillating and thrilling sets..:cool:

    B Men's doubles - Mona Santoso & Aaron Huynh defeated Chris Ngu & Dung Truong in straight sets..enjoyable but not as exciting as the Funky doubles though..

    I did pretty well in my predictions, at the least the "B" Division and Funky. The one big upset was Howard Shu not winning the "B" Singles. There's always next time. :p

    Too bad Chris cramped even before starting the B Doubles, otherwise it would have been a good match. Cedit to Dung for giving it all he had in the match. Except for the heat in the gym, this was a fun tourney. Time to start practicing for the Winterfest.

    ..this yr's Funky Doubles' Final reminded me sort of last yr's Summersmash's B Open Doubles' Final..Same start and similar ending/tactically..;)
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35611
    In both cases, Ronald(last yr) and this yr Howard Shu were the ones being forced to make plays, often being forced to make plays with their backhands..;)
    Anyways, hope the upcoming Winterfest will bring in the same if not better competitions..:):cool:
