Hi, been lurking for a month or so and got back into playing a couple months back along with my teenage son. Been like 20+yrs for me, but game is slowly coming back. Never realized the incredible amount of badminton available even in my west end neighbourhood.
Any leads to these racquets in the GTA area other that Yo's as he is OOS ATM

Gonna have access to the ADI Power Pro/Tour, ADI Precision Pro/Tour and adiZero Pro/Tour (it's all we've got in Canada for now...) soon.
Any of them lacking reviews or has the most interest ?

Most definitely not the Zero Pro - way lighter. The Power Pro might be sth you like.

Adidas badminton still not available in this region. Slow in marketing

to be honest, I will buy the racket if their high end is around $130 (at least introductory price) I will buy it in a heart beat. saw it in MBS and it costs as expensive as high end yonex.
Hell, they are hoping for the hype and their brand name to make their badminton brand took off? dunno, same with li-ning for me, not gonna buy it
just my 2 cent

^ That's what I thought too initially but it's more comparable in price to Victor. And reviews so far have been very positive. Unlike the latest and greatest from Y and V.

I was dead set on the DF too but only shuttlehouse and MBS carried it at that time.

The DF seems like an amazing racquet but the color scheme throws me off lol.
APP however is beautiful

Every dollar you spend on badminton equipment can be justified by the company. You may only see that it only costs them between 30$ and 90$ to actually make the racket, but you also have to account for huge R&D expenses, huge marketing expenses (including sponsorships), huge QA costs, all the staff they have to pay, their equipment, and then you have to account for the fact that they have to "sell" those products to a distributor that has to sell them for profits to retailers that have to sell them for profits to customers.
People tend to focus way too much on the price point and want to go get it straight from the factory for 50$, but thats not how it works.
For low price equipment, you should buy Apacs stuff or some other brands that don't really do any R&D or any of that other stuff and sell you directly their 15$ racket for 50$. That is actually the most economic and the best price/value way to go, but you won't get the "shiny" new technologies and stuff. To each their own preferences, Civic vs Porsche :P
