    Is it official badminton shoes because if I look at other adidas badminton sites, they don't mention anything like this.

    I've seen adidas shoes advertised as badminton shoes long before they announced they would start a badminton line. This doesn't mean a thing.

    I don't think the Stabil 10s are designed specifically for badminton. Having said that, the Stabil 10 in blue looks really nice.

    The site is a collection of different adidas shoes, marketed as badminton shoes (just like the BT Feather is marketed as handball shoe here). The Stabil is originally a handball shoe, and a couple others look like they're from the volleyball collection...
    Also, the Feathers on the site are definitely not adidas (although to be fair it's called 'Replique'), I'd be a bit suspicious about the other stuff as well.

    Please can post your views on your racket and compare to any that are similar, how it performs as a doubles racket and your ideal tension and strings, as I am very tempted to order one myself but has been hard for me to find other reviews besides Kwun's.

    I currently use:-
    NS9900
    Victor's SW35, LYD & JJS

It even feels lighter than my friend's 3U Voltric 80. Either that or I've gotten much stronger over the past decade. lol!

    I'm so excited about this racket. In a way it feels like the ArcSaber FB, but heavier. The reason why I describe it like that is because both racket seems to have a similar weight distribution. Obviously this is the heavier racket. I have a feeling I might smash harder with the Duoforce than with my AT800 DE. I won't find out until tomorrow evening, but man, I can't wait until I smash a birdie!
    There's actually no pic visible

    It feels light because of the headlight balance, not because it is light overall. The FB on the other hand is headheavy but feels light because it actually is light (this is where the term swingweight comes into play; not to be mistaken for headweight that some are starting to call swingweight now although I'm sure you can make up some sort of relation between the two)
    So they don't really have the same weight distribution but the swingweights might be closer together ...

    You still have to measure the balance point and overall weight of yours (if you have a kitchen scale or something alike; for balance point just balance it on your finger and remember whatever letter it balances at and grab a tape measure)

    This is a repost of my previous post. I've asked the mod to remove the previous post.

    Really? Is that really the case? Honestly, the weight distribution of both the F version of the FB and the Duoforce seem similar if not the same. I don't have a scale so I can't do that for you, but again, I'm just telling you how I feel about the two rackets. It's not a scientific test. lol. Honestly, the Duoforce feels much lighter than I had thought. I'm not saying it's as light or as manuverable as the FB. Obviously it's much heavier, but it does seem lighter than my AT800 DE.

    As for impression about the racket, you guys will all have to wait until either Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
