    i think yang yang uses yang yang and fung permedi uses fung permedi brands :)
    I think ardi wiranata was using ti-6 when he was in the US. I'll check which forza he would be using now that he's sponsored by forza.

    Zhang Wei and Malaysia

    Zhang Wei uses at Ti-10

    Also, if you look closely at Choong/Lee they uses a Ti-10 and Iso 800 respectively. Only that their rackets are painted with Gosen logos instead of Yonex logos.

    Re: Zhang Wei and Malaysia

    ZW uses Iso800. I saw it newly strung at the Japan Open. I didn;t examine the raquet closely but other visuals from TV pics make me think he puts some white tape on it.

    I noticed the same thing with the M'sians but recently??

    Re: Zhang Wei and Malaysia

    I saw Zhang Wei using a Ti-10 when he was here in Singapore for the Asia Cup and in his finals match against Candra/Tony at the Sudirman Cup and yes, recently Choong/Lee were using their Gosen painted Yonex rackets at the WC against Kim/Ha

    Re: Zhang Wei and Malaysia

    Zhang Jun used a Iso800 in both the AE semi and Sudirman semi that has a white tape on it. the tape runs along the racket head from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock. it was applied before stringing, and may be even below the grommets.

    can't imagine, a 2U racket plus so much tape. no wonder ZJ smashes so hard.

    Re: Zhang Wei and Malaysia

    I know that the MP 100 has a slightly smaller head, the Swing Power racquets have slightly more square heads, but if the racquet has been painted and some other brand's marks put on it, how can you tell which Yonex model it is? (i.e., can anyone tell it appart without asking the player or someone else who knows?)
