    I was thinking of trying size 9 instead of size 9.5.
    Is that the width at its widest point and length at its longest point?

    i measured as you mentioned.

    however, what i am not sure is whether i am supposed to put pressure on the feet or not. if i do stand with weight on my feet, then there is +5mm difference. i ended up being more towards 265mm and 103mm for my measurements

    Yes, measured at their lengthiest points while standing. I measured multiple times with different methods; measured standing, tracing foot on a piece of paper and resting foot up against a wall.

    Now the space between each toe, please. We need to see if we can get things a little tighter at the top...

    just as long as we don't have to smell that particular picture...

    Seriously however, I don't see much point beyond a point of this micro-inspection. You'd have to factor in growth of nails, corns, various thicknesses of socks.... but to each his own, I guess...

    Kwun,

    I asked earlier, but never heard back. Will you be testing the Adidas N500? I wonder how it'll compare to the Yonex Mavis 300.

    Hey! RacketSportUSA website is now active! $149.99 for the BT Feather? Yikes!

    Are they shipping to Bahrain?

    How do I get the 20% discount?

    Is it confirmed that RacketsportUSA is an official distributor for Adidas? I just want to make sure I'm buying from a reputable retailer. I'm prepared to buy a couple pairs of the BT Feather and the Adizero Pro.

    Kwun, I don't see the hybrid string that you mentioned? Any Adidas strings that's worth considering or I should wait for the hybrid?

    It's a shame the bags and clothes aren't available yet.

    yup. they are the official subsidiary/distributor.

    no duoforce and hybrid, which i was told as well.

    only 3 models of each of the adipower, adizero and precision lines.

    prices was slightly higher than i expected. i was expecting around $180 or so but then with 20% discount, that is a pretty good deal.

    i didn't know the price of the BT Feather, but $150 is higher than i expected!

    as for strings, you can try them out.

    so far i have tried:

    adipower pro
    balance 69
    power hybrid

    adipower pro is slightly stiff and thin. kinda like 85.
    balance 69 is medium stiff and relatively thicker, kinda like bg85power

    power hybrid, is like nothing else.

    adipower pro is worth trying if you just want to play with one new model.
    balance 69 is the "reliable" type of string. do everything good and good durability but nothing to write home about.

    Assuming the 20% discount code is available for everyone, $30 is more than enough for me. It's too bad that the white and black BT Feather isn't available. I saw that in the Adidas catalogue the other day. I definitely want to buy the yellow and black version. I think that will complement the Adizero Pro perfectly.
