    Yep... you can have a high 3U NR800 that will swing lighter than a low 4U VZTF.

    Just due to differences in frame design, wt distribution, and aerodynamics.

    So why do you just assume that isn't the case with the adidas rackets? After all the adizero line is specified as quick-swinging rackets. Maybe they're all speedy, despite the occasionally higher BP, just like the Nanospeeds?

    i always assume the terms of "Head Heavy/Even Balance/Head Light" in manufacturer's racket specification refer to their swing weight/feel. Not completely equal to the physical BPs. Yonex label all the Nanospeed/Nanorays head light and they always swing fast/light regardless some might have high BPs. If all the Adizero are similar to Nanospeeds then they should label them all as "head light" regardless the actual BPs otherwise it just cause more confusion. Adizero Pro has been labelled as "Head Heavy" racket (i am talking about the actual BP but it's officially labelled by them as "Head Heavy") and that has puzzled me "is it really a head heavy (by swing) racket or not" . I expected all the Adipowers to be head heavy but clearly the Adipower Tour is labelled as "even" racket. In my mind, it may not swing as head heavy as the Pro but it should still be labelled as Head Heavy if they do swing like that... just like Yonex would label all Votrics head heavy even some less head heavy than the other...

    i do care about the the terms of "Head Heavy/Even Balance/Head Light" in manufacturer's racket specification is because like many people on here, i can't test a racket before i buy them and the only thing i can go by is the spec and other players' review...

    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.
    What do you mean by BP?

    I would assume it's balance point.

    more piccies. this time it is for the precision 88. the design is rather unique, esp when it is a departure from the "Adidas DNA" of designs.

    spec is:

    88g, bp 295mm. medium stiff.

    the frame shape is hexagonal which kinda resembles Victor Bravesword. but at the same time, it has those little bumps at 3/9 oclock. those are physical bump that protrudes out. and it is a 76 holes pattern vs 72 holes in the Victors.

    has zylon and titaium mesh and all those good stuff. straight shaft.

    so those dimples / bumps are supposed to improve aerodynamic air flow? interesting...

    i wonder what kind of swishing sound it'd make... higher pitched than bs series, i'd imagine

    totally amazed by the paint-job.
    the concept of dragon design is very interesting and they made bumps like dragon scale at the frame too, it's unique, and I wish it's effective.

    great paint job but i can only imagine those bumps will cause more drag than those smooth Bravesword when you swing it...

    it would be nice to see AdiZero/Adiprecission Tour's pics and spec as well but they seem to have stopped updating the adidas badminton facebook page now...

    on the contrary, the purpose of those bumps is to improve aerodynamics (at least in theory anyway)

    much like having dimples on golf balls help break up laminar flow to control turbulunce at the boundary layer
