    i think it is a matter of taste. this is a new look for sure. kinda like those new type of strap bags that Yonex came up with, and then everyone copies it. personally i didn't like that style of Yonex bags. as for this new style of bag from Adidas... i am still on the fence personally. the color is nice, the style.. hm.. different. shall i say. :)

    Hi, thought you have given up badminton for the time being. Is everything alright now? Is your girl still taking martial art lessons?

    She got bored of it. She's into dance now. Cheaper. But new baby is not making it easy to get out to play just yet. I can probably play for another year before $$ becomes tight again. Daycare for new baby and before/after school care for my daughter = less money for me to play badminton. :(

    today is like Christmas + Chinese New Year all lumped together. :)

    well, unfortunately most of which i need to review and then can only reveal in a couple of weeks' time. so stay tuned.

    but this is actually one of the first items that i took out, and i too wasn't sure what was inside before i opened it... any guesses? (i put the lego piece there for size reference)

    How will adidas do compared to yonex and victor? Do you think it'll have a slow start?

    I think the biggest income in America is to focus on the high school students and junior players. I think they have to break the common stereotype of "Oh Adidas is a shoe/clotheswear company and is just making badminton stuff on the side"

    This is from their facebook website. Is it just me or does the guy in the Adipower picture look like Lin Dan?

    I have a hunch that the "switch" category will be something along the line of changing the BP or weight of the racket....

    It can't be Lin Dan. He is contracted to Li Ning.

    They are not allowed to use a picture of him. This doesn't mean they "can't" :)

    Well Adidas can throw as much money around as they want. Contracts are only worth what people are willing to pay for them.
