    Seeing that he changed back to his previous racket, maybe not so much :D Perhaps his normal racket was at the stringers? I noticed him putting the last racket back into LYD's bag, so maybe they were sharing his rackets for some reason. Ko broke 1 or 2 rackets (not strings!) during that match (Quarter Final) as well...and in the final, he was back to his Thruster.

    No need if you have the BS12 - they're basically the same racket :D

    Just out of interest, what's the oldest yonex racquet still being used by professionals these days?

    I take it no one's been using carbonex racquets for some time now.

    i thk months ago, one taiwanese female player still uses mp99.

    personal opinion its a great racket, balanced and good(cant describe) flex. fell short of being legendary becos of over production. still can find them in local stores.

    Wow.. MP99... still wondering about AT700 1st gen though, if Yonex still able to give her MP99, then AT700 should not be a big problem too, unless they have all been wiped out by hungry collectors out there.

    Thanks for the info j4ckie.... I was curious about BS12 and Bs09 1st gen a while a go, so i would only save my time and buy one of it only, and most probably it would be BS12 , since it is still quite accessible rather than BS09 1st gen.

    So are KKK and TBH both using 4u VTZF?? What about LD? He switched back to N90 from n90II? Why?

    i am not paying much attention on victor rackets. However, some guys in my local badminton forum claimed that there is 1st gen and 2nd gen. I guess 2nd gen BS09 differ in wording than the 1st edition, not its color though.

    I don't think KKK & TBH are using VTZF 4U, it is lacking of power for them. Definitely 3U for them :).

    if he used n90ii it wasn't for very long. He probably just liked the n90 more but it's impossible to really know.

    Never ever saw him using the N90II....so there's no reason for him to switch back, as he never even used it. The first gen is head heavier though, so that might be why he stays loyal to it ;)
