    Pretty good marketing for Li Ning...

    6 World Champions became world champions with a Li Ning racket in their hands today..
    1 Champ swinged a Yonex
    1 champ swinged a Forza....

    This is what quite amazed me yesterday.
    During the md final match yesterday, fu hai feng and cai yun didnt have to change their racket because their string didnt break!:eek: wow, this is what amazes me. Fu hai feng was so smashing so damn hard yesterday and that li ing string is hard like a rock:D still didnt break..what model of the string he's using?

    This is interesting.. I got some information that Li Ning was dropping their current line of strings, and was about to give more info.. Maybe they realized the old strings was no good and made a big effort to make new model?

    around puchong, i saw it in MBA...plus, i heard from AJ's boss, if u guys in MAS want LN racquets,AJ will sell cheaper cos the boss claims that only a few places in MAS sell LN,so AJ will sell cheaper now,but if LN is getting popular,the price will go up.......

    i think Li Ning is not as good as Yonex from the design wise and also quality

    All Chinese players look like they sweating so much and need to change shirt during the match..
    Even Victor has nicer design for the Korean

    Li Ning's design is much below the Yonex.

    Korean and Japanese players looks great...and chinese girls should wear more skirt for the sake of entertainment since they are the one rule the top badminton..

    Wear more skirt "for the sake of entertainment"??? Shouldnt they be impressing with their badminton skills or by showing more skin? Maybe they should be wearing the short shorts worn by femalevolleyball players to up the "entertainment facter" huh? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    in this era...appearance of your idol has important role in making badminton to be more famous like tennis etc..chinese girls have skills already...so they should be better in appearance..

    so far only Cheng Shu, Zhao Yunlei, Zhao Tingting, Zhang Yawen wearing skirts...

    Actually, I don't understand why this thread should be here - this is category of Professional Players.

    I guess LiNing guys are marketing here. If this thread should be in the forum, it should be moved to the Equipment category.

    1) What is wrong discussion the pro players new sponsors, in the pro players forum??

    2) If you want thread moved I think it makes more sense to PM an administrator, than to post in the thread you by some obscure reason, find irellevent due to the fact that it is about pro players equipment and switch of sponsorship?!?!

    3) What is the reason to put your views in all bold??

    4) If you have been reading the pro player forum, you SHOULD know that pro players rackets are frequently discussed when discussing pro players..

    se for example:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1233754&highlight=Yonex#post1233754
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=676824&highlight=Armortec#post676824
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47292&highlight=Armortec
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22917&highlight=Armortec
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39718&highlight=Armortec
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43757&highlight=Armortec

    just a few examples.. If you want all the threads moved to equipment-forum that discuss what equipment pro-players use from this forum.. I think you have a stiff job..

    As you have not objected about similar type of threads when the "big you know who" brand and models where discussed in pro-player context, I can't help to think that maybe you are the one more interested in the "marketing" aspect of these discussions, than the rest of us...
