precision 88 is also speced at 88 grams
switch pro is 85 grams.
adizero pro is 80 grams
in terms of weight, looking at the whole top of the line racket of each series, adipower average around 89 grams. adizero average around 80 grams, precision is all over the place, but mostly around 85 grams. switch is around 84grams.
i haven't weighed the switch pro on my scale. i will do that later tonight.

These here at the trade show I have already seen most of them, just wondering if there are more series besides these two? I guess the pro will have to grow on you, initially they looked like something was actually growing out of them and the blue/silver looked decent enough initially but ultimately they are just plain average designs.

Away from the forum for 24h and some great posts in this thread.
I don't see Adidas making great inroads into the Malaysian market on their top end racquets. I see Malaysian consumers as being very, very price sensitive. People are quite happy using a midrange Yonex racquet or Apacs etc.

Im sure it will be success here in Brunei

Ok, I should read a bit more and search. But let me make an excuse for being lazy... Anyone know when these rackets will be introduced to US market?

oh wait. the white/red pro bag is in the picture also. at the top right corner.
that's all AFAIK, there are bunch of variations like backpack, racket backpack, shoe bags, etc.

i wonder if the plastic weight strip on the Switch racket will fly out when you play because of the momentum that it has when you play. i guess i will know tomorrow since i'm assuming you will be playing with them?

Great video. I'm sure that aside from rackets, many players will be eagerly awaiting news on the quality of the shuttles. Where I coach, I regularly need speed 79 and this seems to be a problem for some manufacturers.

I think I'll wait for these racekts before buying a new racket . Thx for sharing all the nice info, kwun!

If adidas wants to send some racquets to me in Kelowna, British Columbia I'd be happy to spread the good adidas news around the okanagan

I am super excited after watching Kwun's video, looking at the innovative stuff they put into the racquets and strings it seems ADIDAS is SERIOUS about badminton....this can only be good news for the game is growing stale with yonex, victor and li ning dominating but not re-invigorating the badminton industry....time for change !!!

thanks for the unboxing video and share the excitement with all of us here , kwun..
Personally, i prefer the green/grey racket- the switch pro adidas racket.. the colour scheme is really cool and it is very creative for a badminton racket.. Besides, love the adding weight on top of the racket preference function.. With that, badminton players do not need any extra tapes to add weight on the racket anymore..
Btw, can i know the max tension for those adidas racket and how many types of grip size are there?
As for the shirt/shorts of adidas badminton, i'm sure they have the 'specialty' of producing a badminton jersey which looks cool and elegant on court. Some football jersey are of great quality though, who knows they will be producing badminton jerseys with numbers on it? and not forgetting the price is 'greater' though..I'm sure too that adidas would surely know what could they do to compete with other badminton giant company like yonex, li ning and victor, they should set a reasonable price for the highest and finest quality out there... Which in this aspect I think yonex will be greatly challenged in the future.
