Plot twist: Lin Dan is making his comeback with a multi-corp sponsorship.

Just by comparing pictures the shape obviously matches up. I don't see how you can doubt he's at least been trying the ZFII. The specs are right up his alley anyway.

Just watching the video you can tell the continuous grommets are the same as well. Plus the official pictures.
Clear evidence that he's using the ZFII and I don't know why you can't accept it lolz.
I second Ch1k0
Ya: I hope Lin dan can offically announce his sponsor soon , from the way it goes, it is close to 90% adidas !
What? Are you seen the grommets in the base of frame?? And the frame is bigger than ZFII
adidas is already way more pricey than YY....rackets usually 10€, other stuff between 15 and 60% (the 130€ bag kind of takes the cake, but the 160€ string reel isn't quite sane either....I mean who buys that??). Exception is the towel grip, which is 133% more expensive than Victor, for example (35€ instead of 15).
Can't really follow how you can compare the size of two rackets in different pictures with completely different scales. The top grommets are identical, and I don't know of any other rackets that use those.
Alright. Say you were right. But even though the picture isn't the clearest. It is clear enough that the racket has the Voltric frame design and aside from the bottom 2 U grommets, the rest are recessed. A design which only the ZF II has in the voltric line up. Of course you can keep denying that, but the physical comparisons are still quite strikingly similar.
But if that's the case then my only answer for you is that maybe yonex made him one off prototypes to fit his choice of specification. But regardless only yonex has that style of continuous grommets in the market not now and you cannot deny that.
Just looking the simmetry between top and bottom of the frame, zf ii is less like an "egg". And the bottom grommets, are obvious, aren't the same.
I think Lin Dan is using a future racquet from adidas as is using a future shoes from adidas.
Yes, I can be in the wrong, but I could put my hand on fire for that racquet isn't a zf II
Maybe Lin dan use Z force II 2U special edition !
Well, only time will take away doubts
Your hands are burning. We differentiate ZF II based on the grommet design or string pattern, NOT "the simmetry" (whatever that means). 12 mains between the first top cross. Only a handful of Yonex rackets have that pattern. I guess you do not string rackets.
My comment about the symmetry is to explain in what that I draw to assess the size. The grommets are clearly different in bottom of the frame, where yonex which emphasizes the design of ZF II
If you're willing to assume it's a prototype yonex racquet with slightly different grommets only on the bottom, why not assume that it's a li ning or adidas with very different grommets everywhere? That said I think it's a z force just hope that he goes with adidas though.
By grommet design it means where to drill the holes and at what angle to drill the holes, NOT what you understand: the shape of that plastic piece. It's easy to change that piece of plastic. The string pattern is more solid and evident. To this point, I'm pretty certain you don't string rackets. Am I right?
Only time will give us or take away our right.
Yes, you are right, I don't string racquets but, I have a lot of ability to distinguish the proportions and perspectives, and the shape of the frame is not the same for me.
But I can be wrong, repeat, just time will say.
Adidas adiPower Force balance point 305 + - 3 , 92g
Z force II balance point 305, 89g
Li Ning N90 III balance point 304...
In conclusion , balance on heaviest balance point which is adidas, so i guess Lin dan use adidas!
He was using n90 not n90iii. Even if that logic made sense I'm pretty sure the n90 is similar in balance to the force.
But n90 balance point only 300, lower than z force II.
Everyone knows he uses a black prototype panda, Duckfeet has an all black one.
Based on the hints maklike is dropping I think it's safe to assume we will be seeing lin dan as the posterboy for white label pretty soon.
