    Lol no, victor is the sponsor of the team he is playing for, he is playing with yonex racket and victor apparel.

    Crazy thing is Liu Yuchen is playing with Li Ning racket just for this tournament.

    Gentlemen. Perhaps a screen capture would be advisable?

    People in my country said that:

    This racket with "engraved code" in the picture below is "athletes' racket". But this kind of racket in my country (Việt Nam) is a lot.

    I want to know that: "is it true ?".

    There are three kinds of Li Ning rackets in my country:

    * First is internation version which is sold with normal price.

    * Second is domestic version, which is sold in China only, with about 30% - 35% higher price. ("verify" it by looking at the chain of 12 number in the shaft of the racket, near the cap)

    * Third is "athletes' racket", which is used by Chen Long, Shi Yuqi or someone like that and sold with triple price.

    Yes there are player rackets but I don’t know how you can verify the authenticity of those. Commercial versions are quite good already.

    I just wonder. Somebody want to handle "player racket" but they don't understand that they don't practice like professional players.

    It's just like people want to do a "Lin Dan backhand clear shot" with Astrox FB and 65 Ti string. How funny!

    Dont need to understand...loll.. some people just like it.... Haha.... Player racket have higher collections values and second hand value too, if player racket you mean buy those rackey used by players, such as 100zz by axelsen, arcsaber 10 by taufik, z force 2 by lee chong wei, lining turbocharging 75i by Liliyana Natsir.... Personally i used li ning turbocharging 75i previously used by liliyana Natsir.. haha... Whenevers i play i show my friend.. purpose of playing badminton is to socialize and be happy for me.. so i have collections of rackets to play around. ... Life is short just enjoy will do haha.

    Player rackets aren't necessarily spec'ed to be "more difficult" than the commercial ones. The Auraspeed 70k 3UG5 KRP I have is only 293mm BP and 86 grams dry, while TK9000 3UG5 KRP is only 295mm BP and 89 grams dry. Stiffness same as commercial, and in general easier to play than their commercial counterparts if anything.

    Victor used to be like THE brand that does this. Lots of Malaysian player coded and Korean player coded racquets were floating around. Especially the KRP (Korean Professional Player) Bravesword 12 was popular. Mostly popular because a huge amount of Korean pros used it I assume.

    I only got to try the KRP black Bravesword 12. Felt just like a normal slightly head heavy stiff racquet to me.

    The Malaysian pro coded Jetspeed 10 felt like a z force though. That thing was a stiff hammer.
