    From what it looks like in the video when you slow it down that's what I've gathered from the video


    CYF - AX 77
    HYX - AX 77
    ZSW - AX 88D pro?
    SYQ - AX 100zz?

    He's known for bs12 but in his absolute prime (which was playing with JJS imo) he was using BS 09. It's a racket that floats under the radar though for some reason

    I don't see zhang Nan or Chen long in any of the promo pics. Is it confirmed Chen long will also go to yonex?


    I think the racquets you see the players holding are for promo purposes. Can't say what they'll use until tournaments for Chinese team occurs.

    But I am sure we will see a bunch of 88s, 88d, nf700, nf800 and ax100zz

    Will CL wear his traditional Li-Ning red shoes but tape over the Li-Ning logo with a yonex logo?

    I would expect Zheng Si Wei using similar spec to N7. / Aeronaut 9000C.

    Weight: 85-89g(3U/W3)
    Flex: Mid Flexible
    Balance: 295mm

    • WEIGHT: W3 85-89 gram
    • BALANCE POINT: 298mm
    • FLEX: Medium

    Jordan and Oktavianti demonstrate their determination to win in the new season. “We just have to stay focused, bringing out the best of us. Hopefully, we want to win the gold medal in Olympic!” Jordan said.



    THRUSTER F (Enhanced Edition) /A830III will be the appointed racket /footwear of Jordan to enhance his powerful jump smash, while Oktavianti who is excellent at net blocking, will use the speed series racket- JETSPEED S12II as well as the upgraded shock-absorption and kinetics footwear- P9200II. Let’s look forward to their performance in the future!

    hhmm....
    Why TKF? It already had a figure model TTY which describe a beautifull deceptive play but not power. Why not promote other power model like TK Ryuga for example.
    And why JS, tho its superb racket but its old model. Why not ARS series instead...

    Even if its 100% up to player choice, why not going for repaint racket like what LD did. Isnt it would attract more buyer for other new model.

    100% agree on this. Does anyone remember for what timeframe the outrageous contract with PVS was signed? Cause hands down, if they drop her too, then there is something big happening within Li-Ning.

    SK's performances have never been remotely worth the money they spend on him, so cutting him off would only be logical. :rolleyes:

    a) it's a lot of hassle for the brand to produce these repainted decoys
    b) so far, they are decent top 10 players, but eons away from the universe of LD and LCW
    c) and maybe they both simply like those rackets best from the current line up?
    d) maybe, just maybe Victor doesn't want to have this BS and wants to be authentic?

    And besides, as long as they are using up to date models, why would Victor care a bit if it is a TK Ryuga or the "enhanced" TKF? Which is looking gorgeous by the way.

    oh nice my favorite player from favorite category will be using my new racket :) and please do not suggest using those kids rackets like ryuga, which even looks quite awful :) I think victor should have already advertised tk-f blue way more, so nice that enhanced version get some publicity

    Tan Kian Meng is with yonex now (since they are independent with Lai) but he was still using drive x 7k just with covered butt cap

    Yuta is a great catch, best one for LN right now, they need to get aggressive and aim at some japanese and korean players, that would be interesting.

    I swung a Ryuga at the shop. I dare say it isn't bad at all. It was quite hefty even in 5U.
