For start, they will be focusing on badminton specialty shops. You will find them in places where you will find top model badminton products.
I was told that in the beginning they don't plan to sell them to the big box general stores, so you won't see them in Target or department stores that sell low end backyard badminton stuff.
That may change later but for the beginning, they want to focus on the enthusiasts.

Also does anyone know what standard players they will be sponsoring ?? Will it just be the top level players or will it be juniors showing potential ??

@Kwun, how does the Adidas G-PRO shuttlecock compare to Aeroplane Black since its decline in quality in recent years. since this was the second category class of Adidas's shuttlecock lineup, will you be getting an opportunity to do a review of its PREMIUM first class lineup shuttles?

the G-PRO seems to have replaced that. it has a similar medium stiff feel shuttlecock that seems to last long. as you can see the used shuttles in the video that they still look rather decent at the end of the game. there is still quite a lot of life left in them. While i cannot say that the G-PRO is as good as the old Aeroplane Black, it is pretty close. I can do a A/B comparison to see.
as for the G-COMP. i will try to ask for one tube to test. i was told that the G-COMP is the absolute best shuttle they offer, the best quality material as well as the strictest QC bin. i also suspect that they will come with a premium pricing though as we might expect from the best quality. (i wasn't told how much)

Finally understood what Kwun called the top of the line: G-Comp, which means G-Premium must be lower in line. I count 6 goose and 2 duck shuttles ...

the naming is slightly confusing given that i had used the word premium.
to clarify, the order above is the order from the best quality to the lowest quality. as you go down the list you would expect lower quality materials and less strict in the QC process, which in the production of shuttlecock means less stability or slightly less perfect appearance.

The shoes look good. If my Nike Kobe ever wear out (and if they come in size 13) I'd probably give them a try.

what i am curious is how they actually perform in the court. which i will find out tonight. the shoes is slightly narrow is still marked prototype so hopefully my review won't be biased due to that.

I think it's alleady biased because you just scored a whole heap of free pre-production stuff
