    Hello all,

    I am not sure if this topic has been discussed before.

    From several threads, quite a number of members agreed that higher tension would be better for control, since the shuttle goes off the string bed quicker.

    However, in some racket designs, like Yonex 88S or Arcsaber, they add more "flex" to the frame for "shuttle holding", which is opposite to previous theory.

    Could someone please enlighten me on this conflict?
    Best.

    Yes its kinda confusing & i feel like it just a marketing word for selling their product.
    Like for example my victor TK770HTi have catapult structure tech where lower part of the frame is flex that said able to give more power on shot.
    Then compare to 88S which also had flex part on lower frame but Yonex version said to increase control.
    So power or control? Really unclear....hahahaha
