    Mmm... I usually will see the part near the grip to see if it is a 2U or 3U....is there 4/5U???

    If I am not wrong, that indicate the weight right???

    I got a 3U racquet at $50. Not sure what series that is, but I think it is good enough for me....

    I am an experienced.... but not good... type of player....

    Hougang or YCK groups on or not????

    Wah... all these sounds very expensive to me... have not followed the pricing for a while, since have not played for a while too....

    Muscle Power is okay for me (now they got promotion, quite cheap compare to be4 sale).....like it v much. If racket too light, it is very difficult for me.,especially when smashing and return when being attacked, light rakcet also means weak return lor (for me), i prefer the heavy one.

    Heh, if its the racquet that makes the diff, I think Singapore wouldn't have any problem winning most of the major tournaments.

    Unfortunately racquet does make the difference. Good racquet requires less arm power vs. lousy one. Good string is also very-very important. They play important role in delivering power and accuracy in our play.

    I used to struggle with Carbonex racquet because my arm is too weak I think, but after using Yonex Ti and MP series all of sudden my smash, drop shots have improved so much. For me personally, I'm playing much better with good racquet.

    never knew got so many badminton kakhis here. for shuttle, can try protech. durable but a little heavy. hard to kill when smashing. but at least more friendly to pocket cos can easily last twice of yonex shuttle.

    me using ti10 and very happy with it.

    compare to photgraphy, badminton is cheap cheap cheap ah

    one good racket the cost about same as a lousy lens can last you for a long long time!

    re-string every month - $240 ($20x12mths - extreme case)
    grip - $24 ($2x12mths)
    shoes - $100 ($50x2 pairs/year)
    total - $364/year (exl racket, shuttle (varies), court)

    it is well less than what u have spent on the last 2 visits to pub/dicso

    What about the cost of the racket itself?

    You mean you have not broken any so far?

    haiyo.... just wanna compare the $$ spend on badminton is not as great as in photography.
    broke 2 rackets so far, due to broken T-joint and a twisted shaft.
    my other old rackets still around, who wants c8sp?

    looking at the yonex website, it seems that U=weight and G=grip size?
