    This happened with the carbonex series way back in the 20th century, the players didn't like the new racket, so they used old ones with new paintjob.

    Now Taufik uses Yonex's newest weapon. The Arcsaber Z Slash
    I definitely think this racquet was a great choice since before he was using an Arc 10

    (why doesn't he use yonex li ning Carlton etc) he is good enough to be sponsored by them
    However kumpoo could be a good brand just never heard of them

    Money matters more than material ;). Any brand can create a good enough racquet. So you can assume his deal with Kumpoo is better than what others offered ...

    there is a good list here on the Yonex site:
    http://www.yonex.com/badminton/advisory_staff/index.html

    but it is interesting none of the China team players are on here (they used to be just a few months ago)... does anyone know if they have all switched to a different brand? the top players used to all use Yonex. Also, the korean players, Lee Yong Dae and others used to be listed on the Yonex site but no longer. Did they also switch? Is Yonex falling off? What are they using now?
