    What record???

    As far as I know that number was taken from the marketing brochure by yonex, not an offically measured record in public as far as i know ?!?

    If you have other info please refer to where this record has been officially set..

    the speed number in yonex brochure is generated by a machine so it dont count as a record. A machine can generate almost any speed. Yonex never claimed as a record.

    I wish stupid Guiness book of records would put Badminton onto a page of it's own instead of under "Racquet Sports" heading. Then they should put a gigantic pic of Fu Haifeng.

    LEFTY4LIFE WOO!

    Not bad at all!!! :D

    So does this mean Fu Haifeng has the hardest smash on the pro circuit or will this record be beaten again before the end of the Sudirman Cup?... :)

    You can read about it here:
    worldbadminton.net

    Fastest smash by a singles player so far is 298 km/h set by Kenneth Jonassen.
    How come I'm not surprised :D

    Interesting to note that it is a "defensive" player who has the hardest smash!
    However, Chen Hong has not yet played and his smash is maybe even harder... :rolleyes:

    The problem with comparing speeds from different events and times, is that we don't know what exactly is being measured.

    Is it the speed:
    at the instant the shuttle leaves the racquet
    average speed from racquet to x metres
    average speed from racquet to net
    average speed from racquet to destination

    I'm not trying to deny that people have faster smashes than Archer, but I expect that if Archer was there now at the Sudirman, he would probably beat his own "record" too.

    If you read worldbadminton.net article, you will see the speed measures have been done by an independant company which also measures cricket and tennis.
    I don't see any reason to question the validity of these measures...

    finally - it's been ages since we got some new stats on smashes, hopefully we'll get a full report on how hard people hit it. no doubt people could hit it harder than arch now with all his injuries. I'd like to see Robert Blair and Jens Eriksens and Jonas' smashes - reckon they're pretty huge, and coming down from such a steep angle too. tennis serves look pitiful by comparison :)
