    Now, if the Adidas sportsmen could just "go all out..."

    I thought "I'm all in" was originally a gambling phrase, meaning you've pushed all your chips into the middle of the table, ergo, you're all "in".

    In Australia, if you just said "I'm all in", THAT'S what you'd mean. If you're exhausted or too tired, you'd say you were "Knackered" or "Wasted". I've never head anyone say "I'm all in" when they were too tired/exhaused/broke.

    I still have to say, my favourite Badminton catch-phrase is my own.......Bad to the Bone

    I think that is what Adidas is trying to say. They are essentially "ALL IN" meaning that they have invested loads of money into this new badminton line. That it is that they are NOT messing around and they are serious about the sport.......hence, they are here to stay. Versus "HALF IN" meaning a company that is NOT giving 100% and is doing it half asssss. I like their approach.

    Yeah, Adidas definitely all in. Brand awareness is there, the name Adidas speaks by itself. They already got Viktor Axelsen as their major brand ambassador, which is pretty good considering Viktor's young age, and the ability he possessed at this stage, in the right hand and by keep focusing on his goal, he will be a big star in the future. In my opinion pricing will be crucial factor in here, Adidas needs to draw badminton enthusiasts attention to try their racket out. Somewhere around Victor racket price is good enough, not as expensive as Yonex and Lining but not cheap either, prestige is still there. I am so eager to know the price of their badminton goods, especially racket.

    I am interested to know about their shuttlecocks and when they will be available on my planet. And for how much. It seems the quality and consistency of anything below AS40/50 has become a bit of a lottery, of late. So if Adidas can ensure this, I'll buy the birds, and the pretty, pretty precision 88!

    I was told that in the beginning they don't plan to sell them to the big box general stores, so you won't see them in Target or department stores that sell low end backyard badminton stuff.

    That may change later but for the beginning, they want to focus on the enthusiasts.
    It makes sense. Who baddie enthusiats want to buy racket at Target anyway? They would be available at their outlet stores in Gilroy though right?

    i was told that initially they don't plan to have products in the outlet or any other Adidas stores as they want to focus on the specialty stores first.

    i have also asked about the pricing on some of rackets and shuttlecocks.

    while not able to reveal the exact price, i believe you will be happy with the pricing of the rackets, but not too happy with the pricing of the shuttlecocks. that's all i can say for now.

    When will you have a review on the shoe, shirt and shorts samples that you received?

    Just curious about the shorts and whether the towel like fabric will get "nasty" over time after a few washes.
