    adidas Superlight 2

    Hi,
    I just bought my new adidas Superlight 2. The reason I bought new shoe is due to my others shoes are quite heavy. I like very light shoe as I my movement is fast. I have good pick-up, therefore heavy shoe limits my movement. Heavy shoe give me lag when to pick-up with my ankle & calf. I like spring in the court and usually restless in court.

    I have bought Yonex, but the weight again constraint my movement. Even though that Yonex is among light-weight series. I found this adidas shoe when surying to buy my new racket. The model name: ADIDAS Superlight 2. The owner claim this shoe is so light, as likely same as 2U rackets. I tried, I weight, and I'm not been cheated. Yes, it is more less like weight of 2U Yonex.

    After bought my racket that is Cabonex 21SP 3U/G5, strung BG66 @ 24lbs, then I weight both racket and my adidas shoe. :eek: likely same weight:eek:.

    Bought on 28th September 2008.
    Actual Price: RM199 but I got it at RM169 coz I bought my CAB21 racket in package. My CAB21SP 3U/G5 at RM240.

    Hi dorkboi92,

    I can't say YES/NO, but what i can say is only on perception and assuming only.

    My country(Malaysia) is part what they call AP region(Asia Pasific). My understanding is that U.S is part of it. Meaning that products manufactured from Asia/Asian will be market to U.S too. Then, it should available in U.S.

    Again, it depends on demand too, coz badminton is real serious sport in my country, therefore is worth sold here, right? Not sure your at your country side. But worth it if you visit adidas.com for futher product info.

    yonex SHB-100 Ltd & Asics Gel Rocket

    Hey guys, great thread, shb 100's should be arriving today or tomorow so i'll give you a rough estimate of the break-in time these shoes need, and a quick personal review. I currently use Asics and i'll get some pics to you guys, great shoes and really snug fitting. Real nice soft rubber sole which provides plenty of grip, the only thing i noticed was that on the front of the shoe there was a small rip from the front lunging.... pics to come

    Thanks

    Shoe pictures

    Hey guys heres some pictures of my Asics Gel Rockets. Nice shoes for beginner to intermediate players. As i say it has a small rip in the front section (shown in picture) where the leather split from lunges. The shoes are really light and grippy due to the sole's material and shape.

    After playing volleyball and badminton for over 25 years at approximately 2 pair per year, I'm embarrassed to say that those are only the shoes from the last three years. Dougie, those are Yonex Shb 755sp. I think they are a cheaper Asian model. They grip great, but the quality isn't up to the international models. It didn't come with the Yonex power cushion insole.
