    I know the china team are now using Li Ning, and so are the other country, is all the badminton team leaving Yonex?
    Im from UK so cant get a chance to try out the Lin Ning products, but does Lining start selling their products around china and asia now?

    I get the information from other forums that LiNing rackets has been launched. But the price for that 4 series-"wind", "fire", "Mountain", "forest" are quite high, almost HK$2000. It is a new brand only, it is worth to take the risk. I may stick with Yonex unless LiNing will reduce the price to a reasonable level.

    My guess is that they want to position themselves as "high-end" so pricing below Yonex would be counter productive from a marketing standpoint... Not they are saying "prcing" wise.. hey we are better than Yonex, we should not cost less :)

    twobeer is right, but i will stay wiith Yonex, unless all top players change to Li ning then I probs get one and have a try on their products.
    I saw a picture Lindan performing, and his was sweating really bad like shower, do he normally sweat a lot or is just the shirt which make it worst??

    their shirt seems to stick to their skin as sweat is soaked into the shirt...yonex shirts however, do not do that..unless heavily drenched >_>...

    I was offered their rackets when I travelled to SIngapore. Never tried them but they were being offered cheaper than the Yonex I was looking at

    ya i agree with yours opinion, Yonex products are so long history and I seeing the product line improvement. I recently also get a top line product from Yonex, before I bought this, in the shop also selling Li Ning racket, it's all feel heavy when I try to swing it, somemore the material used I don understand it, difficult to decide which one is good.

    I thought they are just off-loading the price to sponsor Team China onto the consumers.
