    Default Yonex 'GlanZ' Promo Video (Worst ever?)

    I dread to think how much Yonex paid for this promo video. Surely they've missed much of their target badminton market here? It's a badminton racket, not a luxurious watch or private jet. I can't help but think this was meant to be released on Apr 1st. I really think it's a poor advert.

    I've just watched that, and I have absolutely no idea what they were thinking.

    Literally none.

    Maybe they hired Marks and Spencer's marketing team?

    What's all this guff about "furthest distance"? It's a badminton racket, not a three-wood!

    I'm guessing Rexil Fiber is a lighter material, but isn't as strong. Would explain the low tension rating, and the specification of the racket.

    I bet you if this racket clashes with other rackets, it will break easily. The head shape and all that gimmick makes for a fragile racket. This advert made me chuckle, what were they thinking! In UK we have a sports radio station called Talksport and they have a term called 'heads gone', well the marketing department at Yonex definitely have had the heads gone moment.

    Kindest regards,

    Honestly... this actually sounds like a good racket for my gf... except I won't pay that much for her to play as infrequently as she does...

    but a larger sweet spot would help her, and if it really has so much repulsion for further distance, I will have to retrieve fewer mid court smashes...

    hahahahaha, I am laughing so much that my stomach hurts

    maybe they are trying to appeal to mass market, but they are totally ignoring their core fans
    my comment to that video is WHAT THE HELL DID I WATCH JUST NOW?

    I honestly think they are... but badminton isn't a mass market sport... there are a lot of rich Chinese hobbiests out there. But, I think Li-Ning has the national market.

    They should have done a video like what they did for the Voltric Z-Force II. Also the highest this thing will go in terms of tension is only 22lbs? That's pretty low. why campaign for a raquet that the pros won't even use.

    Wow... I sure hope your badminton skills are better than your spelling... or your grammar!
