Lin Dan => SOTX
I just heared that Lin Dan left Yonex and is now playing for SOTX
Can anyone confirm this?

I can Almost categorical confirm this isn't true.
In order for this to be the case, he must leave the Chinese National team for another country (since china will not reccomend him for competitions as an independent player from china). Because the china team is sponsored by yonex individual players are signed for yonex as part of a condition of being in the team.
His Club team (Bayi Army team) are sponsored by SOTX however, and when he represents them (at national level) he will use there equipment.
so it may simply be a translation error or misunderstanding somewhere.

Lin Dans local club/team is sponsored by SOTX, So When Lin dan plays for his national club he gets SOTX stuff.
If he also have individual contracts with SOTX and/or Yonex i don't know..

hahaha, i do give u guys credit for perseverance
legally, i said it looks like LD is using AT700 and yonex pants. I didnt say it was an absolute, while I am more certain about LD's shb98 and yonex string Shirt and pants affect performance the least while having the most visual impact so it wont be an issue for LD.
For technical discussion, i wonder where sotx got the design from
hmm, LD using the same blue overgrip too

And I do beleive he was using his AT-700 during the nationals! To be honest, I don't think it would make sense for Lin Dan to switch racket for one tournament (even if he felt it performed equal or better than the AT700), if he is obliged to his national-team contract to use the AT700 in the next international tournament anyway.
I mean, ha hasn't made the switch to Nano-tech yet either, Like Chen Hong and Bao
