You still have the second stage to go thru... Search for perfect string.
Yeah already ordered ZM65 in red from Eric last week as well as some BG80P, BG66UM and BG65Ti.
Currently both have BG66UM red and yellow.
I've decided to get an 83g at 295mm after having tried my friend's racket today which was 87g and head heavy. it was far too heavy for my liking
I'm ordering it right now with nbg98 at 24 lbs and the g16 grip
thanks a lot guys! and hopefully I get it on time as I leave for the tournament next thursday!
^ That's what I had before... It's too light... Don't forget it's a BS top half frame, so needs to be heavier to be more substantial in attack. Something like 85g 295-300mm is better. Trust me... I have bought 8 various XP rackets before for myself and friends.
Oh okay, then I'll ask Eric to change it but I think I'll stick to the 295mm
83g 295mm is what j4ckie has... and he finds it too light
KeirTuS is a teenager so it's probably just right for him!
Eric only has 84 295 and 86 297
If the 84 is too light, I can just put lead tape no?
perhaps, but if he's practising with provincial level players... he should be quite good... and he says his current racket is 90g ... is that right? [MENTION=77043]KeirTuS[/MENTION]
Well I'm not practicing with them, but I will be competing against them
The racket is correct but I find as I've been receiving training, when I pronate, it hurts my wrist too much. I never used to pronate with this racket so yeah
yah, true... but from my experience with eric's measurements is that the actual wt (as measured on my 200g +/- 0.01g digital scale) will usually be 1-1.5g lighter than stated ... so if you ask for 86g, it'll likely weigh around 85g... trust me... I have bought 8 XP's in the past few months...
Alright 86g 297mm shall be mine!
:thumbsup: and ngb98 @ 24 lbs will be a very powerful combination... because that's what I have on my xp60
Looks like I made the right choice! yay
[MENTION=57143]visor[/MENTION] - what are the recommended strings for feather vs nylons?
please update us on this thread and on the rkep racket thread when you get a chance to play with it!
feather: vs850 in past, zm62 now my go to... nbg 98 recently tried and looooved the crazy repulsion, but finding it hard to adapt to the slipperiness of it... have started a thread to mod it to rougher texture... http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php/126121-Mods-to-make-NBG-98-rougher?p=2073662
nylons: zm65 but at 2 lbs lower than for feathers to mitigate the greater vibration with nylons
I wonder what's taking Eric so long to make the invoice he was replying within minutes just 30 minutes ago :'(
lunchtime in tw?
