    I bought a pair about 2 months ago as backup. But I have yet to wear it because my SHB102mid is still holding up fine. Since you would like to know how it performs, I will test it tonight and give you a brief review later. What I can tell you now is the heel counter is shorter than any other regular badminton shoes. It somehow makes you feel that your heel is going to slip out of the shoe whenever you lift your feet for a forward lunge.

    Maybe they should have their eyes checked !? You can say they are mostly the same but not that it is "just a different name" ... See difference in upper material and lacing system.

    Here is another user btw that bought it and whom you could ask (with some normal searching I assume you would have found that post already): http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...52#post2113352

    The new models, Blade 4 and CyberSpeed 2, look (even) more similar except for upper material .

    After 2 hours of intensive game on rubber court, here is my brief review of the Gel-Cyber Speed.

    Fitting - The shoe is slightly narrower than SHB102MID. In the mid of my first game, my left foot felt a little cramp due to the tight fit and lack of circulation. Fortunately this has disappeared from the second game. I believe the shoes will widen after breaking in.

    Cushion - The sole sits lower to the ground compared to SHB102MID. Yet I did not feel the lack of cushioning at all on the forefoot and heel during lunging and jumping. The Asics Gel cushioning is doing a pretty good job in this aspect. It is on par with Yonex Power Cushion which has a slightly thicker sole. Though the shoes are new, the sole is not too rigid. No breaking in is needed on this part.

    Grip - The Gel-Cyber Speed possesses good grip. I didn't slip one bit during the fast pace game. It could also be the rubber court surface playing its part.

    Durability - The material looks really durable. It should be able to withstand a lot of 'battering'. The toe box is made of synthetic material. This material is very different from any other badminton shoes out there. I have noticed that the outsole has turned yellow rather quickly. Not a major concern for me as it is only cosmetic.

    Overall, the shoe is light, has good stability and excellent cushioning. This would be the main thing anyone should be looking for in any badminton shoes. But I have to admit the design and look are also pretty important to me. I am beginning to fall in love with it especially on how it has performed throughout. My SHB102MID shall be kept in the box for the time being.

    Thanks Barca and Demolidor.

    The shoes has good grip on parquet floor too. Although the grip pattern is similar for both GCS and GB3 is similar but GCS is meant for floorball. Hence, I am wondering if it will be suitable for badminton.

    Probably more like 99.9% . I would not hesitate to buy a pair in any case, would depend on which colour I like better between this and Blade , but I don't think I have seen a Cyber-Speed so far in the shop near me.
    I use "handball" shoes just as easily for badminton btw as long as the fit is good. Maybe if I still had to play high level competition I would be slightly more picky (mostly in terms of weight) ...
