    That's what I would assume as well. VT80 production also started in December already prior to the All England release 2 1/2 months later in March. But still leaves open the final paintjob might differ ... (ARC10 production had also already started when the black ones were still in use)

When asked about it, Lee Chong Wei made several revealing remarks for all racket enthusiasts.

    "I am somewhat glad that my new racket has garnered a lot of interest from the public.

In fact I only used the Voltric once, during training, in which I was soundly beaten by Wong Choon Hann. After that I used APACS Tantrums exclusively. And do you really think Lin Dan won the World Championship using a Li Ning? It's actually a painted on APACS Slayer. Ditto Chen Long, who uses a dressed up Nano Power."

    There you have it, mystery solved.
    Anyone believe the above story? Be careful, Bernama may take action if it is not true.

    Can someone tell me how Yonex has acted in the past before realeasing a top-of-the-range model? I wasn't around when the ones like Z-Slash were realeased, so I can't compare.
    Secondly, I don't know how the situation is in the big badminton countries like malaysia, but here in Luxembourg where we do have quite an established community, the players aren't as focussed on new racquets, many don't even now of the Voltric 80. I see that there's a lot of talk going on here on Badmintoncentral, but is this also true for other places?

    I believe that the tendency of consumerism for badminton products is very high in south east asian region

    Hmm, I think you have way too much free time on your hands. My personal take is that Yonex has some ingenious new marketing strategy. The sole purpose of which is to convert Twobeer into a Yonex fanboy.

    In that close up pic of the racket above, are my eyes tricking me or do I only count 3 shared holes on half of the racket?

    That sounds very fishy. Why would Lee Chong Wei admit to the public that he has been using a racquet of another company repainted as Yonex? Would Yonex allow such news to be made public even if this information was true? How would Lee Chong Wei know the racquets that his opponents use?

    There you have it, mystery still fishy.

    Looking at it carefully, I count 39 holes on one half of the racket, so does that mean it could be 78 hole design?

    i counted 4 pairs of non-shared holes on top and no pairs of non-shared holes at the bottom. that should make it the same pattern as the Z-Slash.

    That makes sense, since this new racket is a Z variant!

    yes. and i think in the future when we see any Z-Smash, Z-Kill, Z-Force, Z-Slice, Z-Drop, Z-ipper, it will probably have the similar pattern too!

    Hmmm, I too doubt this story from both LD and CL using them, LCW openly admitting so while endorsing the paymaster YY, and beaten by old man WCH with the latest Voltric, and if LCW rebranded YY to look like APAC then whoever did it has done a good rebranding job. I think the writer posted this as a prank and see if anyone takes the bite.
    On the other hand, I do like and use APACs is because the Tantrum and Lethal are very good rackets, IMO better than YY/LN at the same price range. Still, I much prefer the YY/LN that LCW,TH,LD endorse. The real reason I buy APACs is they are cheap-cheap at 1/3 the price of YY and more savings than LD's LN at Pertama Complex in KL.

    It's really no question whether that is true or not. It's simply a prank, and not a good one
