    temporarily, CHN can do what wang chen does, just slap on the stringbed with a different logo. Audience wouldn't notice it, except the die hard racket freaks like us The key is visibility, like shirts & shorts, shoes which are very visible to audience and TV viewers.

    Default Can someone confirm this??..

    ..i was chatting with a fellow badder this past weekend, and he told me Li Ning actually bought another baddy company/brand, DHS (Double Happiness, which also makes baddy equipments such as rackets, shoes, shuttles), as part of its investment..

    Is this true??..

    Yup, DHS was/is(?) owned by a subsidary of Li Ning. However, DHS is known more for ping pong than badminton.

    You're right...
    The name doesn't sound appealing at all

    To you it doesnt sound appealing but to 1/5 of the world's population who are mandarin speakers, Li Ning sounds much more appealing than yonex or victor since chinese people refer to these brands as yy, sometimes yone-kex, and victor as 'Sheng Li' - i.e. the chinese translation. Appeal is a matter of opinion and i am sure Li Ning's target market isnt much bigger than just you.
