    Yes whatever the dark one was I also wonder ... Thought the other/lighter one was ZF Olympic but didn't pay much attention to it. Also my browser crashed and didn't see more than 5 minutes of the match really :D ... Did think I saw the typical ArcSaber side of the frame and was looking out for a ARC10 but only saw a whiteish racket and the other something red/black in the frame. Watching on a tiny BWIN window ;)

    But I see from Indonesia Open 2012 their rackets were ARC10 red and NR800 ... and before VT70 and NS9900.

    That should read: 700RP ... (or at least looks like it in Djarum pics)

    I'm sure this has been covered before, but I think one of the Japanese men's doubles players (or maybe Indonesian?) is using some black and goldy-green coloured racket. It's not a Nanoray, and they both look Yonex sponsored.

    Pictures from Gades Facebook page seem to suggest traditional ISO head shape, but strangely on the shaft and head, the decals are similar to Voltric series... (More specifically VT80)

    Well with Japanese players you can never tell as they're all forced to wear Yonex clothes and most wear the Mizuno shoes as well. The rackets are a completely different story though as they are free to choose different sponsors there (Hayakawa for example uses a black-and-yellow racket I can't identify to this day).
    Indonesian might be using a Flypower? Unless he has a Yonex stencil on it, of course...

    @LD rules! - I was just about to say! His final game with LD, and he got a new racket! Does seem very strange with the new decals... not the rumored Arc11 with some voltric-y stuff added in?

    Kido uses 900P again

    484piakido hr3 kp.jpg

    Extracted from PBSI website, on the 2nd round of Korea Premier Super Series, Kido used Yonex AT900P when beating CPS/GLY of MAS. Since sponsored by Flypower, Kido should use Flypower racket, right ?

    No yonex stencil means that he is not sponsored by yonex.
