    Really tempted to preorder from them but have a few queries which i hope you guys here can help
    1. Will the pre ordered racket be JP Version?
    2. Will we get any special features by Preordering the racket? ( Perhaps a LCW Signature on the racket XD )
    3. is there a difference if you preorder it from rakuten than from yonex?

    Hope you guys can help! TY

    Yonex does not sell retail. Only through it's distributors and channel partners.

    Oops, looks like only part 1 with English subs is up. Part 2 has the Lee/Yoo vs Park/Kim match... that's available here, somewhere around 10 mins mark...

    thank you very much for the reply, i had actually confirmed it with rakuten personally that it will be jp version, but there is one more thing i would like to confirm. Because you said that the there are no differences in the product whether it is from yonex or from rakuten, so do you mean that if i preorder from yonex, it will be JP version too? and will this pre order definitely be cheaper than the pre order from yonex?

    Yonex doesn't sell direct. You're not buying ANYTHING from them directly. It's from a retailer via a distributor. Doesn't matter if it's a 'pre-order' or not.

    A second generation racket is not bound to be better than the 1st gen.
    For example, AT700 & ti10 are still classic.
    2nd gen is not always a direct replacement either.
    At700 & Ti10 are also good examples.
    ZF2 must be a lot different than ZF1 that LCW can't take the risk using a racket
    he can't trust completely in such an important tournament.

    It's all speculation at the end of the day. I mean, we've got Paul Stewart claiming (or heavily implying) that Yonex is providing painted Flashboosts to Carsten Mogensen. If that's the case, it's impossible to know what racket any of the pros are actually using. Maybe LCW was using the ZF2 painted as a ZF1? Marketing advantage of this? Easy, so they can finish selling the remaining ZF1 rackets.

    I'm not implying anything. I asked one of the stringers at the All Englands whilst I was talking to him in Yonex suite. I asked the question whether Mogensen was using Flashboost as I found it strange and he told me it was a painted Z Force. I've known this guy for years so why on earth would he lie?

    That's because there's no proof that is indeed the case. Just because you know him well doesn't mean he doesn't ******** at all. Until I see evidence that suggest otherwise, then this is nothing but a myth.

    Back to our own believe for such an ambiguity. But for this time and this case i'm more biased toward a painted ZF like the stringer guy told Paul

    If it was Ferrero Rocher who posted it, I would not take notice ... but this is Paul we're talking about...

    I got the confirmation this week that the Z-Force will no longer be made once the ZF2 is launched. Normal retail price should be around 250-260$.

    Also, no surprises like last year's Flash Boost in the catalogue/price list. Only information worth mentioning is a new VT50 (VT50 NEO) as well as the VT70 not being distributed in Canada anymore.
