    I doubt they'd be better, perhaps worse hehe - they'd be concentrating on the wrong thing! When I last heard the Indonesian coach talk about why the Men's Doubles and Mixed Doubles were so successful now, he didn't mention anything about racket specs!

But before he got to the pro level, I'm sure he had to take care and be aware of his equipment as an amateur.

    It is quite a contradictive question. Truth to be told, pro players often have difficulties to understand those technical/scientific aspects since there are very limited resources for them to learn... Well, I'm talking about players in Indonesia where English is not their main language and most available resources are in English, so language is considered as one huge barrier. Moreover, those players may not be so fortunate to spend a lot of money to try new equipments as much as some of us do, unless they are really on the top stage where sponsors will do for them.
    Talking about racing car drivers, Niki Lauda and Michael Schumacher are very well known of their "extra" knowledge of technical aspects of F1 cars. It helps them to give more feedbacks to the team's engineers in setting up the car according to their preference as much as possible. A proven great success indeed.

    Of course top badminton pro players might have done this as well, and one good example is the great Lin Dan. He has been very persistent with his "official" weapon so far.

    ^ Where's the double like button?

    Of course it's also possible and probable that at the very top pro levels, racket manufacturer sponsors likely have specialized technicians who sort out and QC the rackets according to specs and preferences.

    This is done in tennis and golf already, so I don't see why not badminton.

    Not sure if we can compare racing cars to badminton rackets. Maybe racing cars to the America's Cup is more appropriate:

    These guys spend millions of dollars to get a "faster vehicle". I'm pretty sure most people would agree with me that the badminton racket isn't comparable to equipment in these "sports".

    I am pretty sure pro's know what they want in their rackets, maybe some of them might not be able to say on I want my BP to be at 305mm with a wet weight of 95g etc, but pretty sure(for the non technical pro) they can say, I like this racket please find 5 others like this and put them in my bag... While there's the argument that they are pros they can adjust quickly well, yes, they probably can adjust but there would still be an adjustment period where in a match I'm sure even a few points could make a difference... An I'm sure if you switch out Tiger Wood's golf club, he'd know... Even if he can play with it, pretty sure the performance will still suffer a bit...

    WZM's racket pretty looks like a N90-III. But in my eyes, it's too much of the white colour to be a N90-III.

    LCW - Yonex Voltric Z-force, green colour.

    If Victor was smart, they would paint the BS12 KRP to whatever colour of any new racket they want to push!
    Considering that the blue BS12 is not being made anymore, they can repaint it to look like another BS a MX, or Thruster they want to push and it would sell like hot cakes since LYD uses it!

    wait what?! BS12 has been discontinued??? dude victor discontinues this racket quite quickly considered that LYD has been using it instead of his own signature racket....maybe victor is trying to push the blue BS12 whoever partners with LYD is using it together with LYD?
