    Unfortunately, Canada will not have any stock availability before the summer. They are still in discussion with several parties regarding the distribution of products, so things are still at an early stage.

    I will try to see if I can organize some kind of demo day in Greater Montreal before the summer, but I am not sure that it is something that is possible.

    Have you tested the Switch yet? The concept seems very interesting. What is the balance of the racket with and without the strip?

    Prolly a genuine error by an overly eager worker bee who scanned the list of countries capitals on his spreadsheet and clicked on Beirut instead of the one just above it, you think?

    Having read all the reviews and information on the facebook, i do feel that the line up is a bit confusing to me... It's not as easy to follow as the Yonex line up. Yonex's line up can be distinguished by different headheaviness. But Adidas line is not that simple... It seems every series has different head heaviness racket. It's more like Victor's. I am now really not sure which one to get to replace my BS09 for doubles if i am going to pick one from these rackets... and please give some review on the Adiprecission... Why did you pick the precission 88 but not Pro or Tour? what is the main difference between Pro and Tour?

    The adipower line is similar to the Voltrics/Armortecs while the adizero line is similar to the Nanospeeds/Nanorays....don't see what your problem is. There's one lighter, speed-oriented and a more heavy, power-oriented line of rackets...that they don't have an own Arcsaber-like line doesn't bother me, not all manufacturers have to have the same line-up as Yonex after all. The Arcsabers weren't so distinguishable by head heaviness anyway (some Nanospeeds were HH than some Arcsabers...).
    That some adizero and adipower rackets have similar BPs doesn't mean they swing similarly, the adipowers have much higher weights and thus are actually more head heavy.

    exactly.

    BP is only part of the equation. i can have a 300+mm BP but 7U racket and it will be head light.

    adipower and adizero is basically heavy and light. it is that simple.

    precision however, takes some understanding, basically they are softer feeling racket that is supposed to be better for control. the weight and BP for precision series are kinda all over the place.

    thanks. i understand BPs are not the same as the swing weights. What confused me is on the Adizero Pro's spec, it clearly stated it's a head heavy racket, i thought Adizero is a head light series regardless the BP. But in the Adipower Tour's spec, it says it's a even racket whereas i expect it to be a head heavy racket...

    agree. their definition of balance and head heaviness is not as clear as we defined them to be.

    that's exactly my point... some Nanospeeds have high BP but they still swings light because the weight isn't on the top of the head so Yonex still class them as head light racket...

    Is the demo days somehow in relation to the release date in various countries? Or when can you actually buy things?

    Adizero Pro isn't head heavy. The target weight is 80g, even with the 295mm BP it's still light and fast...they just label the BP for those not familiar with the numbers (i.e. those that don't know 295+mm are head heavy etc)

    Re bp and wt specs, I wish that manufacturers also provide head wt too. At least that would give a better indication of swing wt. That way, we'll know at least how it swings on paper, instead of being in for a nasty surprise on the first swing on court.
