I'm not offended at all I just don't think that some of your personal concerns about Forza rackets are valid for most badminton players. Like the fact that a 88 hole setup doesn't allow for as many string setup-combinations as a 76 hole racket does. I really don't think it matters a great deal for most players, that's why I said it's a "non issue". And yes, I agree that the 96 hole setup should be avoided, however, that's ONE racket of over 10 top-end models, so again, not really a valid concern in my eyes. It's like discarding Yonex as a whole because you felt the 3U ZFII was a stiff, unwieldy sledgehammer. As for the durability: The vulnerable points of the frame are where the holes for the grommets are - not the "meat" between the grommet holes.
