    3. Team China is so good that they can beat anyone, even with cheap rackets.

    When 2 players are in same level of skills, like LD and LCW, racket does matter. Should LD was using a low end racket to play with LCW, I dont think he can beat LCW.

    So, I would say, Li Ning rackets are at same par with Yonex. Otherwise, LD wouldnt beat all the world's best MS players easily!

    Agrees partially with 2 & 3. Doubts with 1 and disagrees with 4.

    According to the BBEsports page: Cai yun racket: cost RMB 1680
    Lin dan racket cost RMB 1980
    Chen Jin racket cost RMB 1780
    Bao chun lai racket cost RMB 1680
    Fu hai feng racket cost RMB 1780

    I believe now market not doing that well, as people are cutting cost.. Yonex rackets such as Nanospeed 9000 cost RMB 1150, AT power cost RMB $1200.

    Comparing prices, and people tightening their pockets, i believe more people will rather stick to other brands of rackets such as pro ace, apacs or even RSL.

    If Li ning continue to price themselves above Yonex rackets, its going to be very difficult for people to buy their products.

    Yes, bbeshop has membership discount. But after discount, the price is still high compared with Yonex.

    well, apparently the only thing stopping the reviews is the prices. I wonder, when are they going to release in North America. It would probably a slugfest between Yonex and Li-ning here, if they tried to take over the market, seeing as most places are yonex dealers.

    Default table tennis

    I wonder can we compare this scenario with what happening in table tennis. China TT team are very dominant and also playing with chinese made equipment, but the problem is the one that they sell commercially is different from the one that the national team uses. Even the price from japanese/ european made rubber/blade is much more expenisive, I find out that serious player still willing to pay for it. In other word the price of the japanese/european made TT equipment still remain the same.


    Now, would the Li Ning racket they sell are the same that their national player use... .

    In TT, there are National-grade, Provincial-grade and commercial-grade equipment.

    Are the National-grade available for everyone to buy ? from what I heard its only dedicated to the National team. And if someone claim they have the national-grade, there's still possibilities that it might not be the real one.

    Li Ning states the rackets that the public buys(the national team player series) are the same ones that the players themselves use, but of course, using the LD racket won't make you LD without the proper skillsets

    if LD has one specially made, he won't need the white tape for the extra head weight.
