    When you see players sponsored by Yonex they wear and use all Yonex gear i.e Polo top, Socks, shorts, Tracksuit, Rackets (obviously), shoes, Head band, arm band and Rackets bags as Yonex makes all these for their players. But as I know of Carlton only make Rackets, Racket bags, tops and tracksuits:eek:, which isn't much compared to Yonex so what do the proffesional players do about Shoes, Shorts, head & Arm bands? I think Nathan Robertson uses Hi-Tec footwear but what about everything else?

    If anyone knows please tell me as I really like Carlton, Thanks in Advance.:)

    I think Carlton and Hi-Tec are cooperating.

    then the athlete will simply have to buy their own.
    or find another company willing to sponsor him or her for shoes and whatever else he might want or need sponsors for.

    remember that sponsorship is a two-way deal...

    In the case of Nathan he is sponsored partly by Carlton in the case of rackets, bags and clothing and his footwear by Hi-Tec.

    Carlton do make clothing for badminton but they just don't make shoes, as far as I can remember they never have in the last 10 years or so.

    Headbands and sweatbands are all different depending which competition you see him in so he probably buys them when he needs them.

    I don't know where to get it, but are you talking about the red/brown leather look one with a gold carlton logo on the side?
    I think it was something special Carlton did for the 100th All England
