    Similiarily the pros. choice of rackets are more based on how much sponsor money the get from using it. I have never met a pro that would be unwilling switch to another brand if given significantly more sponsor money from using that compared to his current brand..

    The pros also focus so intensely on their training and using the racket they currently get sponsor money from using, so they do not have the luxury (or insentive) to try every racket around to look if there is something better as well.. Look at LD.. I am sure he has tested the ARC 10, and other top models after MP99, AT700. but I really doubt he even has tried for example TC700, Babolat top-end, Forza Top-of the line etc for a significant amount of time, if he even swung it at all :-)

    Hell, what if he liked Forza top end better than his AT700.. He would not be able to use it in any case based on the sponsorship deal between YY and Team China :-) .. Just as IF team China Switch to Li Ning.. He will not be using the AT700, even IF he feels it is the nicest racket :-)

    So, I would say in most cases racket choice for player are based on other aspects than what racket are objectively the best (for him/her)..

    I agree with you on this.

    well, some didn't even use Yonex rackets (chen jin)
    and for other, it's probably a matter of stringing.

    The stringing team at the AE is still yonex. So if you want strings in your (yonex or not?) racket you get a logo on it as well.

    The rackets they strung at homebase (do they have to string them themselves?) probably don't have to have a logo.

    i doubt it. If yonex is or was the sponsor, the YY logo on the string bed is a must. This is what i think (yet to be confirmed), is that yonex is already out of china team sponsorship on equips. LYB and the players understood that changing racket and string now, coming into AE, a very important tournament, is not appropriate time of transition, and requested and got the ok from ni ling to let players to use whatever they want in order to achieve success at the AE. In term of the yonex shirts, i think that is different agreement from the equipments and yonex still might be the sponsor, for the time being.

    Yeah yeah, That's what I thought too.

    I thought your point was more as to "why do some still have a Yonex logo on their racket (LD) and some don't (cai yun)?"

    Maybe the Li Ning shirts haven't gotten back from the printing service yet

    I can't tell you what shoes those would be, but of the few sites where I could find their products, perhaps you should look into these aesthetically fantastic running shoes. http://intl.li-ning.com/#product/run...&***=male/4560 (the nice brown ones)

    Anyway, if you were to venture to China, I'm sure you'd find one. As to quote Wikipedia..."as of March 2007, there were 4,297 Li-Ning retail stores."

    So all this talk about Li Ning taking over Yonex as the sponsor for Team China and we still don't even have any models of their rackets or anything to see yet? I wonder how much longer it is going to take before Li Ning will completely take over all aspects away from Yonex China team wise.

    As already mentioned, Kason is, or will be, part of Li Ning. Kason has been the official sponsor of Chinese National Junior team. Technically, almost all Chinese National Team players, e.g. LD, BCL, were Kason players.

    Presumably, Kason will be the official rackets of CHN team.

    But from the pic of Chen jin's racket..i assume that it's lining's,since kason doesn't have that kind of racket.Plus..from their racket's bottom pics..different from kason.I guess lining have started making rackets for the pros..but maybe it's still in trial.
