    Usually, international players use 3U rackets. In this case, I'm rather sure as the Bs12 is very quick anyway and has a somewhat low BP compared to most Pros' preference. 4U would just be too light and lack power.

    I've had hands on with the BS 12 3U and well..I already find it lacking in power for my style.

    Judging by the two lines on the cone...I'd say Babolat.

    I'm going to guess and say that it is either an X-Feel Blast or a Satelite 6.5 Blast. My reasoning is that there are some splashes of red on his racquet and these are the only two on their website that have it.

    Do the players have special contracts with other sponsors than usual just for the Djarum league?

    My guess would be that the Indonesion Super League is right around the time where many players start using their new materials if they got a new contract....usually, only the apparel is affected by league play (i.e. players wearing the team sponsor's jersey rather than their usual brand) and rackets aren't. Would be a mess if players had to change rackets all the time :D

    Is it just me or does Boonsak's racket look Voltric-y? Can't make out any details though...

    Oh, and I agree with olli on Hu Yun's racket. Looks like a Sat 6.5 Power to me (don't see any red, and he used the 'Power' rackets before as well).

    He was still using the Arc 10 Premium during the Djarum Superliga...He'll probably switch to the Arc 11 at the All England.
