Indonesia’s Top Men's Badminton Duo Blazes New Trail as Professional Pair
Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan open a new chapter in their careers this year as Indonesia’s best men’s doubles pair begins playing as professionals.
The duo, ranked third in the world, officially secured its release from the national team last week. The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) issue a letter of release, breaking ties with the pair which had been in the national team since 2001.
Markis and Hendra’s first act as professionals was to secure a sponsor to fund their ability to play in international tournaments. Both were sponsored by apparel company Yonex during their time with the national team, but that deal ended once they left the camp.
They announced on Monday they secured a three-year deal with Flypower, a local sporting goods company which is owned by Indonesian badminton legend Hariyanto Arbi. None of the parties were willing to reveal contract details, but the deal is reportedly worth Rp 1.5 billion ($160,000) per year.
“They offered us good money, I can only tell you that. Anyway, we have to start loving our national products, don’t we?” Markis said on Monday. “[Flypower] had been approaching us since we announced that we had quit the national team early this year.”

Hendra and Kido are now under Flypower-Arbi (not Flypower)
Hendra will use Flypower-Arbi Warrior-7
Kido will use Flypower-Arbi Tornado-800
(please do not forget to put "Arbi" word after Flypower, eventhough they may from similar source in Taiwan, but the Flypower-Arbi has a different logo at the cone)
