    Default Will Lee Chong Wei take a new Victor racket?

    The Malaysia National Badminton Team is sponsored by Victor after March this year. It means that LCW will change taking Yonex's racket to Victor's. Does someone know which racket is?

    Lcw has a special contract with yonex, I don't think he will be changing.

    He will have to wear Victor kit for team competitions, but he will most likely use his Yonex rackets without a string logo.

    That special contract would have been formulated when yonex was also sponsoring Malaysia. So any conflict must be there now . what is the major takeaways of the contract.

    Victor doesn't list LCW as its contracted player and has no advertisement about him. I guess he won't have any change on his gears, even clothes.

    He more than likely has to wear victor jerseys because or BAM's contract with Victor. Maybe even shoes. But I highly doubt he will change racket at all. Nothing from victor comes that close to the ZF II.

    If it is not in the contract then why will he change the racket irrespective of whether Victor has it or not . On the other hand if BAM players need to use victor racket then LcW will have to use a victor racket even if that is crap , if he wants to be with BAM . As simple as that.

    Then they'll have the same problems hashing it out between each other like LN and YY for LD. Either way I doubt he'll use a victor racket given his contract with YY that predates Victor sponsoring BAM and such a equipment change could throw off his game. If not we'll see another potential problem that DBA has jyst because of butter cookies.

    But this time it will be because of something related to badminton . Not butter cookies lol . I wish he uses a victor so that we can see what he likes in victor . If only a match or so.

    Very true but the conflict in essence is the same. Sponsorship problems. But to chance giving up his matches after coming back from a ban...Doesn't seem like his style to risk it.

    He will continue using Yonex rackets and clothing (for individual competitions).
