    Dude, he uses the VT-80...he only had the Z-Force for one tournament or two. I guess he'll be using a G4, that's the standard grip size here in Europe...but I don't know for sure.

    Yeah, but usually people stay with what they're used to. In his case, the G4....his grip also looks darn thick. Just like that of a previous clubmate who puts towel grip on top of the standard G4 ;)

    yeah, but he wont have had eu rackets for ages. international (IP is it?) probably come with g5 since pros tend to have thin grips... all speculation on my part though.

    Why does he use tapes on his N90 when Li-Ning can make a racket with specification that matches his requirement

    He says it gives him a better connection with the racket... same as putting the grip on. LN offered to do it for him but he said he had to do it.
