YONEX DUORA 10

2016 – 2019 (Until retirement)
Lee Chong Wei is currently using the Yonex Duora 10. This is a revolutionary racket from Yonex. He has also used the black red version of the same racket in between, but he switched back to this colour very quickly. It seems Dato Lee Chong Wei likes the colour of the Malaysian flag to be the same with his racket.

The Yonex Duora 10 was launched in 2015. This racket is one of the innovative designs brought by Yonex to the industry. This was the first racket to have a frame which has a dedicated side for backhand and forehand. So, bad news for players who turn their grip during a rally.

The racket has a stiff shaft and is extremely fast in the air. The racket feels like a little head heavier version of the Arcsaber 11.

YONEX VOLTRIC Z FORCE 2

2014 – 2015
From Lee Chong Wei – Lin Dan – Momota to the average club player Johnny, everyone was using this racket during the rough period of 2014 to 2017. The Pink + Dark blue version is the Lee Chong Wei exclusive version.

The Yonex Voltric Z Force 2 might yet be the most iconic racket which has ever been released by Yonex. It was released before the 2014 All England. This racket is primarily meant for singles players as it has a head heavy frame.

The racket will be suited for players who have an attacking style of play. It performs well with overhead attacking shots but it lacks a little bit for defensive shots. You will need to have a very good wrist technique to hit your shots well using this racket.

YONEX VOLTRIC Z FORCE

2012 – 2014
Lee Chong Wei participated in the 2012 London olympics using this racket. Yonex released a Lee Chong Wei Olympic edition of the racket in White + gold colours just before the Olympics. Unfortunately for Lee Chong Wei, he came extremely close to winning the Gold in London 2012, but lost out to Lin Dan by a very fine margin

YONEX VOLTRIC 80

2010 – 2011

YONEX ARMOTECH 900P
