Im interested in how they will price their top end range.

I was told that it will be competitive and not higher than yonex pricing.

How good a racket is really depends on how good the quality of fibre, shaft and its manufacturing process. But how many players out there really do their research beneath the rackets fancy branding and paint job?

Was able to talk to the person in charge for the US today, but I didn't have much time to talk. Did get some info though.
Launch in the US will be delayed a little (beginning of April).
Launch in Canada will not be until this summer because nothing is ready up here.

Sad as it may be, most people buy racket based on the brand, the look, and how "top of the line" it is.
More than a few times, we have heard people says, "recommend me a racket/string, as long as it is Yonex". it is kind of like the iphone mentality. people buy iphone for the brand, but in reality, many Android phones have already surpassed the iphone in technology.
for Adidas though, they are ahead of anybody else in the they have a internationally known and reputable brand. it will be hard to find anybody who have not heard of Adidas. that give them the brand recognition which is very very big. next is they need to make sure the designs are attractive, and then have a decent pricing level for their top of the line, not "Li Ning" high that price them out, but also not dirt cheap. add those plus a generous amount of marketing, from in store displays, from exposure in traditional and web advertising, and from sponsorship at both international and local level. that should give them the best formula for success.
it will take a few years.

Im sure adidas Badminton Apparels, bag and shoes will be a huge success. Love the colour and the design. They even have the adizero series

I made this unboxing video after I received the package from Adidas. Just want to share the goods as well as excitement with you guys...

Thats a lovely unboxing review.
Could you please mention the weight of each racquet? Adi Pro is around 85-87gm and the last one was around 80gm. What about the other 2?
Coming to switch - Though the concept is interesting, how much difference would it make while playing? Earlier we used to wind a tape on the rim of the racquet. How much is the weight of the racquet without the additional rim?
Eager to hear the individual racquet review from you.

- The Acadademy Awards has announced four new nominations in the Best Documentary category. I vote for kwun's submission!
1) Adidas Badminton Unboxing - a gentle genius discovers that amazing things sometimes arrive in plain packages.
2) Dust: The Untold Truth - a substance that is so easily ignored, yet surrounds us all. What is it really up to?
3) Justin Bieber: TMI - could there possibly be anything else about one 18 yo human that is worth knowing? A 3-part, 9-hour investigative report.
4) Sleep - should it be mandatory before posting to internet forums? most probably.
