    i think she's using the new AT900 power now.

    or at least i think that's what i saw her use in the philippine open.
    i'm not sure. hope someone can confirm this with a pic or video.

    Probably the AT900 P since the shaft needs to be white for it to be the T.

    The left is AT900 P. Right looks like AT800 only with black at the bottom.

    I agree. The bottom half of the head needs to be white too, if it's T. ;)

    Yes, Reiko is using AT900 P 3UG4. Ogura is still using AT800 De , but she is currently using alot of AT900T when practicing. You might see her use AT900Technique in tournament during the World Championship in KL.

    BG66Sharp and sometimes NanoGy95. The tension that she uses is roughly around 29 to 31lbs. Based on my touch and the sound when i was holding her racket.

    Oh, so that's Reiko...she's pretty.

    Wow, you're really good at taking photos, unless you're a pro. That looks pro quality =).
