    Yes, honestly that surprises me! How does it perform in terms of swiftness for MD/XD though? I don't play much singles. Is it at all sluggish?

    edit:
    Also having read Kwun's review here, http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...dminton-racket
    it seems like the racket isn't the best for doubles play and lacks manoeuvrability.

    It is a quick racket, the frame shape helps in that department. I myself play MD and XD and found this racket very speedy around the net and in drives.

    Do bear in mind I'm a strong and powerful player so without knowing your strengths etc I can't comment on how you would get on with the racket.

    Ahh... explains it then. I don't think I have the natural strength to fully utilise the racket. My best game would be finding channels of attack (e.g. counter attacks) as I don't have a strong power game.

    This might have been convered somewhere I don't know but...can someone compare and contrast VTZF and Adipower Pro? I have the VTZF and my initial decision was to buy Adipower Tour so I was thinking to buy Pro rather than Tour. So if Pro is somehow the same as VTZF, I would buy the Tour instead(or maybe something from the Adizero series)

    The rackets aren't very similar at all. The VTZF is solid and rigid all over while the APP is very flexible in the shaft but with a solid head. Power is easy from the APP while you need strength from within yourself to utilise the VTZF and the VTZF will be more power in smashes, drives etc if you have the strength. Control wise the VTZF is better as it's more solid while the flexible shaft of the APP caused me some mis timed drives as the shaft attempted to catch up with my movement, meaning I was hitting drives and defensive returns out the side of the court. The APP is the more manoeuvrable and quicker around the net.

    Probably no new (big) contracts, no new products.....although I'm a bit surprised they don't make a bigger deal of Axelsen's Swiss Open victory, as it's the first time he had a good tournament result since he signed with them...

    The FB badminton page (so I hear) is not run by the company itself but someone related to the company and not paid to do so I.e. voluntary work.

    What can we expect from a 'small' company who can't event held a demo day as they promise?
    I am so very dissapointed with this company, Adidas HQ should just terminate this badminton project/contract. The current product don't deserve to bear the three stripes.

    I would've thought the demo days would be the responsibility of the Adidas Rep in singapore, rather than Adidas Badminton themselves.

    I guess my biggest complaint is the lack of information on their products and they almost depend on the individual regions to provide this for them. Not very professional.

    That said, I now own an Adipower Tour and Adipower Pro, and they are both good rackets. The tour racket seems to fit my game perfectly (how times do we say this to ourselves?) and am planning on buying more of them. The finish on the tour is however lacking, there is specks of paint missing, but the Pro's finish is fine.

    I like the colour scheme on the Duoforce S. Removing the brown and adding red makes it look a lot better IMO. As for specs I asked MBS, but they said they can't reveal yet. Guess we'll have to wait gentlemen..

    I think it's like version 2.0, or something like that.
