  1. Haven't played at all since pandemic and rackets sit in bag for 1.5 years. It was 26lb when strung. Will tension stay around 24-25lb? Also, if I restring to 27-28 lb and let it sit 1 month, will it play similar to 26 lb strung new? View the full article
  2. Preface One topic that pops up on BC on a regular basis is the question, if certain stringing patterns perform better or worse than others in terms of tension loss over time. A statement that comes up is that using 1-piece patterns have a bigger tension loss than 2-piece patterns (or vice versa), last seen in this thread: https://www.badmintoncentral.com/fo...-more-i-can-do-to-reduce-tension-loss.188003/ And so far, there has been a lot...

  6. Good evening all, Obviously with all the chaos this past year there are a lot of unkown variables heading into Tokyo this month. Still, now that we know the draw, I'm curious to know everyone's thoughts on who you favor to take gold. I'm not particularly confident in any of my picks, but I'll share my thoughts first and hopefully other fans will join the discussion. Cheers! View the full article

  8. Buried in the Mizuno rackets thread we've hit a topic which I think is worth giving some separate room for discussion. For reference, here's the link: https://www.badmintoncentral.com/fo...no-badminton-2017.160986/page-73#post-2680713 From the way it developed there, I expect an interesting and controversial discsussion. styles/default/xenforo/clear.png And once more for reference, here's a classic clip from the MS finals of the All England '75 with 8 times AE-winner Rudy Hartono vs.... 1975 vs. 2018 - Badminton performance & gear over the years View the full article
  9. Do you guys have any recommendations for an ultra fast racket medium (not overly stiff) flex? Currently using Auraspeed 90S, but even with the 3U, not generating enough power in the smash especially from the back court. Though I am more a 'drive' type doubles player, would love to be able to do the power smash on occasion to surprise opponents with that added arsenal. View the full article
  10. It is only days before Sarah Sponcil and Kelly Claes will begin their last push for the Tokyo Olympic Games. Six events remain on the schedule: Doha, three tournaments in Cancun, Sochi, and Ostrava. Six events left to claim the second American berth to Tokyo. They understand the magnitude of what needs to be done in order to qualify. They are just 24 and 25 years old, yet they must pass a five-time Olympian in Kerri Walsh Jennings, the greatest to ever play this game, the one whom they grew up watching on TV in Athens and Beijing and London and, just last quad, Rio de Janeiro. They were kids
  11. Tokyo Olympics men’s handball preview by Chris O’Reilly With the Tokyo 2020(ne) handball event beginning on Saturday, here’s a look at the men’s competition, with the 12 teams pigeonholed into categories which may well come back to bite this writer in the arse come 7 August – but that is what previews are all about. With a gorgeous Yoyogi National Gymnasium set to be completely empty and athletes facing unprecedented restrictions, this will be an Olympic games like no other but assuming the competitors can channel that out of their systems and focus on the tasks at hand, here is how they sha
  12. The Olympic beach volleyball field was set — until it wasn’t. COVID continues to wreak its havoc on the sporting world, with both Taylor Crabb and Czech Republic defender Ondrej Perusic testing positive upon arrival in Tokyo (with another player rumored to have tested positive as well). At the moment, it’s unclear whether Crabb has been ruled out for the Olympics, or must simply quarantine until he tests negative. The Orange County Register reported that Perusic is only likely to miss his first match, not the entire Tokyo Olympic Games. At the moment, however, Tri Bourne, a good friend of Cr

  14. Multiple sources are reporting that beach volleyball player Taylor Crabb has tested positive for COVID-19 in Tokyo and is in quarantine. Crabb was scheduled to play in the Olympics with Jake Gibb but will now apparently be replaced by another Hawaiian, Tri Bourne. According to the Orange County Register: Crabb tested positive shortly after arriving in Japan over the weekend, according to a person familiar with the situation. The former NCAA player of the year for Long Beach State and two-time AVP tour MVP becomes the first Team USA athlete scheduled to compete in Tokyo to test positive for

  19. You could certainly argue that of the six USA volleyball teams in the Tokyo Olympics — women’s indoor, men’s indoor, and two beach pairs of each gender — that the American indoor women have the best shot at gold. They’re ranked No. 1 in the world and coming off a dominating performance last month in Rimini, Italy, where they won the Volleyball Nations League, losing just one match along the way. “We’re happy that we got out of it healthy. We left VNL healthier than we entered, so props to our medical team and strength-and-conditioning coaches,” said Luka Slabe, not only the team’s defensive

  25. Normally we do Mondays with Mick during the NCAA women’s season, but Mick just got back from a trip to Slovenia and Croatia where he ultimately coached in a tournament final against Logan Tom. That in itself was worth doing a mid-summer Mondays with Mick. The tournament was part of the annual international venture put on by Tim Kelly (TK) and his company, BIP (Bring It Promotions). TK talked to us while cruising on a catamaran post-tournament. Tom, the former Stanford and USA great, is going into the International Volleyball Hall of Fame in October. She played against Mick when he coached at
