    Wait... bg65 20lbs?!

    That's very low for a very stiff headlight racket.

    You play with feather birds, not plastic, right?
    If feather, you should try bg80 string instead, at maybe slightly more tension 21-22 lbs. Much crisper and forces you to focus your power more.

    But I still think that you're using a racket that's too stiff for your technique and arm strength, if you're using bg65 at 20lbs...

    You should pick a more flexible racket, say Nanospeed 7000, or Arc 7 or 10.

    The racquets were bought in Hong Kong and my mom told them to restrung it. They asked my mom how old I was and she said age. Then they just strung it. It was at Rose Sporting Goods. I play but I don't really understand the stringing but when I was playing it felt loose and weak.

    yes finally, after about a month. The nightmare is finally over. Next, never let anyone touch or use it. Only bring it to tournaments and regrip it.

    These are the pictures of my new racquet and the Jpsee Energy Star 911. Some of the pictures are blurry because the camera I used was a cellphone camera and it couldn't adjust to it so I tried my best. The serial number on the NS9900 was: (smaller sized font, first one)- 9474374 (big sized font, on handle) - 010702CD

    The second picture killed my eyes from trying to read the serial #'s :(

    Anyways we could all learn from this lesson that our precise rackets will never leave our bags unless there in our hands.

    it sucks that I learned it the hard way and had to go through all of that. I swear on my life that I will never ever lend a racquet, unless I don't want it, ever again

    what is the point in that ? You won't be used to the racket if you do that. And it is just a waste of money if you use your racket like that. There isn't much point in using it at all, if you don't train with it.
