    Just a matter of time until they close their doors. With their release politics and no pros who promote it they won't sell anything well. Had been a better idea to make a big catch or several top 40 players before they ditched the korean team.

    I can understand that without LYD, KGJ, KSR, KSH and SBC it has become a bad and costy company, but without a plan B a shot into the own leg.

    Lowering costs often don't mean to earn more money in total. Auraspeed will become a hidden series until the totally fade out. Who of the Jetspeed-users is very keen to move on to the next? Impossible to sell BS12 for 5 years more.

    While Victor ditched/screwed the Asian front with Korea, they indirectly (be it big or small) did what Danisa did to all Kjeldsens players a few years back - right now Badminton Danmark is in the midst of a "adhere or purge" situation in terms of contracts for all existing old guards ie. Axelsen, BoMo; Yonex-sponsored players.

    What this means is I would reckon/guess part of the contract deal is that the BA would force players to don the "national" kit and try to hide all personal sponsor logos and equipment. So Victor indirectly cockblocked a whole platoon of Danish national sportsmen. Uhhhh.... awkward? Considering it's Li Ning (in the form of Forza) that actually worked with the Danish team youngsters and actually has had experience before most move on to Yonex? I don't know... but the BA has been trying to get these players to align in terms of sponsors for a few years now..

    They are to renegotiate or adhere to new terms in terms of sponsorship and appearances and should they fail to draft something out by 25 Jan- it is goodbye to the players. Only Mia has worked something out at the moment and she is the only one so far to have signed on the black and white.

    Should a big part of the Danish team disappear/fail to round up, a new round of recruiting will take place in July 2019 - and the BA expects people to understand that the powerhouse of Denmark will take a back seat for now - standard to be lower than current for sure.

    Fresh from Yonex China Press Release.
    It's official, Marin and Intanon will be showcasing the Nanoflare 700 at All Englands :)
    Racquet is slated for a March 2019 release

    Derailing a bit, but bonus fact. Aerobite has a new sibling... Aerobite Boost. Hard feeling string.
    Look forward to players using it at the AE! Axelsen and Marin :rolleyes:

    I wonder how Marin can go from a z-strike (slightly head-heavy, stiff) to a NF700 (head-light, medium).

    Pfft. 5 bucks says she didn't. At least with Intanon it's within a realm of belief.

    V Shem used to play with arc11 before signing with Victor so he is maybe using one from his old stuff...

    That's probably the most likely explanation. Can clearly see that it's the old colour with he yellow accents.
