    Don't drop it in the Cracks of Doom...

    I'm trying to get hold of a demo version over here, but no word yet. May not even be possible.

    let me talk to the powers that be. it is too good of a racket to not carry it.

    i guess that does make sense.

    if you have seen the catalog, it is huge. it looks like a catalog that is released by a company who has been making badminton products for decades, where in fact it is the maiden launch for Adidas Badminton. it is not possible for a regional subsidiary to launch carrying the whole catalog. even if they bring in so much stuff the retailers will be overwhelmed with products. too risky. it is best to launch with fewer products, make a good impression, and then start bringing in more in the future.

    You think the duoforce is that much better than the adipower pro? I thought that racket was suppose to generate the stronger smashes?

    Wait! You don't clash rackets very often but you have already clashed 3/4 of the brand new rackets you were given by adidas fairly recently?

    In the same token would you also say you don't do stringing often? :p :)

    but oh my goodness.

    92.5 grams
    304mm BP
    41.6 grams headweight (dry!)

    when i managed to swing it, very powerful and super stable. i tried playing doubles with it and i am not worthy of it.

    and btw it is supposed to be a singles racket. so probably not the wisest move to try playing doubles with it, and i did hit some half court singles and given enough swing time, power come very natural with the extra mass/momentum.
