Actually I know from sources close to them that adidas has developed the range with Japanese engineers and have invested heavily in moulds for their rackets... let's see the result but at least it is a serious development

Hmmm... be interesting to see how those shoes feel - although I have a feeling the YY (and victor) shoes are probably still better suited for badminton...

Not liking those shoes, at all (not today and not a week ago )... And seeing as they have been up for over a week it hasn't wowed anyone enough to post them here, until today . The existing ones look way better (BT/BD Feather), these look like Adidas' take on the Yonex SC series . In practice they might be very similar to the BD Feather 2 ...

Or one of Victor's stringing machines. Or any other machine...basically there are two manufacturers of badminton stringing machines, one of them Yonex and the other one producing them for all others.

Yonex's OEM is Toyo Zouki, located in Japan. some of their OEM customers are Yonex and Kimony. beautifully engineered but very expensive.
Victor, LN, and looks like Adidas went to Exthree/Porex.
and then there is KEF and Eagnas, etc.

Their racket design is different, getting away from the Yonex and Victor fancy schmancy, more like Babolat

Ugly you mean ? (kinda of a mixed bunch really from the looks of it, some are pretty decent looking yes)
From the trade show pics (that they have posted up themselves ), not sure if it means anything but Axelsen's picture was placed at the 4th line they are carrying: "Switch". Might be the "specially" developed one for him with only two models in the line versus five for the others. Saw one pic where you could remove a strip from the top of the frame which must be interchangeable with something, probably different weights? Also a vague glimp of their chart and taking the Yonex chart these are on the ArcSaber spots but means nothing if the axes are different ...
You can also read the Power Series - Adipower top technologies: Dual Force Frame, Repulsion Power Shaft, Pure Carbon (sound familiar ?) and Drive Feel Cap. Switch, not many top technologies other than that switch: 76 holes something and something grip.
So we will have:
- Fast Series - Adizero (must have at least a Pro and a Tour as well then)
- Smart Series - Switch (Pro, Tour)
- Power Series - Adipower (Pro, Tour, P800, ...)
- Pure Precision Series - Precision (must have at least a Pro and a Tour as well then)
- Junior Series

Did anyone see the grips they have? Seems as if Squash Eric made them...

Wait and see for the racket, but definitely no need to wait and see for their shoes
