    Get ever in touch with Adidas rackets? :p

    TBH it's very hard to beat the gorgeous CWs of NS9000, NRZS (OC), NR800 and D10. Frankly I liked in the past mostly rackets which don't win a design contest. Let's wait how it performs. A lot people bashed the Duora concept and then they jumped on the train.

    Have a look, this was posted on VA's Instagram. It's hard to tell since the rackets are in his bag, but I think its obvious that he is no longer using the Arc11. The two rackets in his bag also seem to be identical and opposite in design aside from the color way (black and white as per the Z-Strike).

    it's not that confusing, the Z series is the compact head type with the respective range characteristics.

    Just consider the "Z" like the GTi badge on a car.

    Yup. Nothing on specs yet.

    TBH I was expecting them to put it nearer to March though.

    Is this a global release on the Yonex Website or just for Japan?

    It's up on Yonex.com which says it is an extra stiff Duora.

    Maybe the new Arc10/11? Or even something similar to the Z-Slash.
