I think Yonex is not paying enough to top china players like Chen Long , Chen jin .. thats why the china team move to Li Ning. If Yonex paid 1 china players min S$10k , see whether they continue yonex ?

China moving to Li Ning had entirely different reasons.
The reason Indonesian players use different brands now is that the sponsorship rules have been softened (not only one brand as before) and that Victor seems to have bid more for the general team sponsorship.
For Yonex, individual players like LCW are worth more than a team that's ranked below the Top 2, and China and Korea are off limits (China for a long time, Korea at least another 2 years).

Kason is not a newcomer. Li Ning is - when they got the news they had to produce rackets in 08/09, they bought up Kason.

They seem to be paying much more emphasis on TK though, which is fine but also seems to be rather myopic in their vision.
Victor marketing is strange, or maybe not big enough.
Yonex has usually 3-4 "hip" racket at any one time (ARC11, FB, VTZF, NR800, VT80PG), while Victor has problem keeping just one (TK8000) in play. and both seems to be supporting old and on their way out players for their signature editions, why?

LYD is a little young to say on his way out isn't he? And KSH seems to be the poster boy for the thruster so I think it's just yonex capitalizing on the huge stars that they are now losing. Edit- forgot about the victor legends.

It makes sense from a marketing perspective. You're going to lose one of the best players you ever had you might as well try and squeeze whatever you can from your sponsorship before they retire. Or after in the case ZJH.

It was not me but somebody commented that LYD is too young to have his signature racket, rather have him drive the Bravesword line. When the old stars are on their way out, then do a special edition to remember them and capitalize on the sentimental value. I think this would be a sound strategy. Don't people find it weird that LYD is not using BS LYD rather the BS12?
To me, I want to use the racket that is being used by my favourite player, not a racket that has his/her name on it only.

if both of them are comfortable for you and you can afford only one, then choose the one with the best appearance. SH9000.

Afaik the SH8500 have a somewhat thicker sole and cushioning. The SH9000 are very flat, and while they're not dampened badly, they might be too flat for some. Upside is they feel very direct.
Choose depending on what you want from your shoe - 9000 for a more speedy, but less comfortable shoe, 8500 for better cushioning and comfort but a less direct feeling.

I am aware Meteor series is alive and well in certan parts of the world, but not in Europe. 2013 catalogue for Europe on shows Meteor JJS...and that's my point. Yet another good range virtually withdrawn with less than two years life.
