    I sold two new and one mint MP88 red BX code here some years ago for not even 100 euro a piece, only one person showed any interest :eek:. Don't know if he used MP99 in a tournament, if he did probably not for long then ...

    Convinced once upon a time Peter Gade used the old colour NS8000...

    Or maybe I'm just confused :p

    I have never seen him with a MP77, but it was listed on wikipedia ... along with AT800D, Cab7000 Plus and Isometric Alpha :p. MP77 came out in 2001, he was injured after/in the World Championships (playing with Slim 10) but came back for the World Grand Prix Finals but re-injured there and then didn't play until US Open 2002 and still using Slim 10 until MP88 in 2004. So he must've have used it somewhere before WC2001 ... maybe for promotion at Japan Open :D.
    Also no idea when he used Ti-10 but at least he was pictured with it, maybe Japan Open promotion as well ;).

    LCW?

    Guys, what racket did PG use on 1999 AE final match against TH ?
    If i am not mistaken it is Ti.10 1st gen, however the quality of video i had is very horrible.

    I think it was a Slim 10 still (no hint of red on this racket?). Noticed on his tribute page some of his rackets were mentioned and comically the Slim 10 is not mentioned at all :D. But supposedly the Ti-10 won (or was used) during Japan Open and AE 1999 ...

    Only ArcSaber 10 DEMO; NS8000 was reportedly spotted in his bag in Denmark when he was still using MP88 but he chose AT700 in the end.

    ARC10 DEMO [pics taken by ... me :D]
