    Funny thing, LYD switched back to BS12 from his BSLYD which is marketed for him. if i were one of Victor decision maker, i will let BS12 be painted to be BSLYD, and let LYD continue to play with it, rather than having him switch to BS12 after huge advertising on BSLYD with his picture, signature, etc.

    It is still possible, but if i recall correctly LYD are the only player who use BSLYD as it is his signature racket, as for BS12, other players in BKA used that. Victor has other players beside LYD to do advertising for BS12, why would Victor want LYD to use BS12 instead of BS LYD. Unless, BS12 sales are considerably low and BSLYD sales are very high, which i doubt that IMHO.

    Pro's 'hall of fame'. Some of these are/were used long after their 'prime' time or some pro keep going (back) to them after 'assigned' with 'better' equipment. either these pros are very fussy or the rackets are really that good;

    Ti10 2/3
    AT700 1
    AT900P
    ARCS7
    ARCS10
    MP99
    BS09
    BS12

    SW35 could be added (JJS kept going back to it, for example at the 2011 SS finals), as well as the N90 (although Li Ning really hasn't brought out so many top-of-the-line rackets since the first N series).
    If Korea or China had stayed with Yonex, the AT900T would definitely be on that list as well (most popular doubles racket in both camps, and some players around here still refuse to use any other racket).

    For the majority, 900T (800D was only Setiawan&LYD at the end, iirc)

    According to Victor Webpage: Ko Sung Hyun use Supwewave 37, and not BS 12.

    Same applies to lee Yong Dae , which he use BS LYD and not BS 12.

    Do you think that's true?
    Do you think the website will update the info immediately if the players change their gear?

    Have you see any record of their match in Denmark Open and French Open? What is the color of LYD's racket?

    Are you trying to inform us on information available in Victor Website, or are you trying to make a statement based on that ?

    We don't have to!
    The website is pure marketing! And I think we are smart enough to not believe every hype and other marketing stuff!!

    The badminton companies' websites are often not entirely up-to-date and sometimes just not truthful. TBH and KKK were listed as NS9900 users for ages, for example, when they had long since changed to Ti-10 3rd gen and Arc8DX.
    LYD was using the BS12 for sure, and KSH used the BS12 first, and then his K-8000. Problem with that is that the racket isn't even released yet, so they can't really list that :D

    these endorsement from bka player shuld take sales of bs12 to new height.

    its surprising to find bs12 appeal to player like ko.

    talking abt it. am tempted to get one to try myself. look like victor campaign is a successful one.
