    I recently called Yonex about why the At-900 doesn't have UHMG in the shaft. They say it has something to do with how it bends. Then I asked why did the great Ti-10 have it in the shaft, and then they say because they have new technology in it instead, and don't need UHMG. So I said okay and hanged up. Then I looked into it a bit, and I noticed the frame had exactly the same technology and more than the shaft, and it still had UHMG.

    This photo is from the photo gallery of the 2008 Korean Open official website. Correct me if I'm wrong, isnt the racket green in color?

    Not so much of the determining of the colour, just that is sure isnt the red of the AT900P.

    As far as i concerned,this AT800DE is still popularly used among the pro double players.Why don't they move to the AT900?Ppl said AT900 is the newer version of AT800.Is it because they're used to AT800?

    Do we have a compiled list of rackets used by professional players?

    I am just wondering if we have a compiled list of the rackets used by famous players ? If not, I hope someone could make a list (and keeps updating) the most current racket used by the players. I know a lot of people would be interested in knowing that. I am sure it is also of Yonex's best interest in terms of marketing. May be we could set up a Wiki entry so that everyone could help updating the list ? Just a thought.

    hey bh185008, yeah that would help, but i wonder if there's a sticky that will keep update the latest racket that the players use. Also, where can we actually back up the information (ie, how accurate is the information), do we just update it to whatever we see they are using on television?
