YONEX DUORA 10

2016 – Present
Lee Chong Wei is currently using the Yonex Duora 10. This is a revolutionary racket from Yonex. This was the first racket to have thinner backhand face and thicker forehand face of the racket. This helps in quicker backhands and powerful forehands. What we see in the photo here is the backhand side ( white + blue). If we look at the racket from the forehand side, it is red + blue.

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.

YONEX VOLTRIC Z FORCE 2

2014 – 2015
The Yonex Votric Z Force 2 might have been the most popular racket which was ever released by Yonex. It has the thinest racket shaft. It also has the stiffest shaft. These qualities made the racket extremely powerful and solid, yet maintaining speed at the same time. 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

YONEX VOLTRIC Z FORCE

2012 – 2014

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
