    It's a shame they said silly crap like 'DON'T TRY THIS WITHOUT A 7 GRAND STRINGING MACHINE', really makes them seem... daft.

    Probably part of their sponsorship.

    It wouldn't be the first time Yonex have made people like for their sponsorship.

    Except LCW is not using the d10. He uses a repainted z force.

    What a useless article, basically just a repetition of Yonex' ads. Buzzwords and marketing hocum, nothing more.
    There has yet to be an independent individual praising the actual noticeable difference in forehand and backhand side of the racket. I don't doubt the Duora rackets are good, but they are so regardless of that dual profile stuff.
    The statement that they can now use their backhand and forehand is cringeworthy as hell - as if LCW had had no backhand before......:D

    Don't be too harsh :D personally I'm happy for people to look at making substantial content for badminton.

    Yes, so am I, but in my opinion mindless repetition of ads and buzzwords are not substantial content :D

    Can anyone confirm what racket Yoo Yeon Seong is using now? Looks like a black racket with Yonex stencil, is it perhaps the ZF2?

    Thank you. This does pique my interest in the NR800.

    Korean league had some games last week. There's also a recent exhibition match of LYD/YYS vs KKJ/Han Sang Hoon. Good entertainment.

    I'm quite surprised that it seems many pro players are not using other strings like Aerobite, NBG98, BG66F, Gosen GT 5, Li-ning 1, etc. A lot still prefer BG65 and Ti? Well at least there's 66Um there ith Lin dan:rolleyes:

    Thinks it's because they mostly stick to the strings they know will last them the longest. When you play all day every day and run 30lbs+ you need your rackets to last you more than 30 mins a time.
