I wouldn't say I'm a fan of Yonex. Rather I'd say their products suited me very well over all these years and I didn't really looked back. There hardly is any bonus. Every company has to show off with every product what they're capable off. I get what suits me best, plain and simple.
Sometimes I had to borrow rackets from training mates because my current rackets had snapped strings. Somehow I still ended up with Yonex gear. When I change rackets I used to sell my former primary rackets. This time I'm going to try out Li Ning N90 III but will try Victor JJS and TK8000 first since I get sponsored.

Shoewise Yonex worked the best for me. Wide enough for my feet, quite grippy and efficient power cushioning.

When will we see a new signatur model of Lee Chong Wei? Will it be after his retirement like Peter Gade and Taufik Hidayat...canīt wait longer for a complete collection!
The signature Arcsaber 11 reminds me of the 1st gen Arcsaber 7 on initial inspection. I really like the new colour scheme, although I suspect I am in the minority judging from a lot peoples' opinions on BC. Do you plan to use it or keep it good for collection purposes?
Iīve played many years with ArcSaber10 PG, my latest experience in badminton is an old racket...
Titanium 10 (III gen) have a nice solid power-feel that Iīve never hold before. Not shure if this solid feel will come in future rackets with all this smaller technoliges like Nano... etc. Hope you guys have some other inputs!
