    I believe this says Yoo used the Super Waves 33 and this one says Ko used the Spira21.

    I think that's what I said, just without the gigantic pictures. ;)

    By the way, their names are Yoo Yeon Seong and Ko Sung Hyun. Family names are Yoo and Ko respectively.

    I heard that the Spira 21 is a really good racquet. The spiral structure in the shaft gives a very good repulsive power.

    I will be getting one next week and can give feedback after I try it.

    here's lin dan photo at a similiar position as Sung Hyun Ko's above


    [​IMG]


    LinDan's wrist looks so strong, a very well built one. In term of wrist he's on par with SungHyunKo. But no offence, as for arm - bicep and tricep, Lin Dan is no match for Sung's supermuscle (geez, Sung's arm more like a bodybuilder to me). And not just Lin Dan, this is also for all badminton players no matter he is on MS or MD :cool:

    Just a point of reference. Ko Sung Hyun's name is normally uttered in the same order as Lin Dan's, with the family name first. I know it's confusing when sources like ts, among others, switch them from time to time but his family name is 'Ko'. Hence, if you were being super respectful, he'd be Mr. Ko, while his friends would call him 'Sung Hyun' (unless they're younger, but that's a whole other story).

    Not entirely true - in MD, KKK is probably on par with him or bigger, and there's no question FHF's left arm is bigger. Although he's not as defined as Ko...but the sheer size of his upper arm is intimidating.

    I think LD arm is tone, and KSH arm is just muscular. But as we know, big arm doesn't necessary mean big power. I'm pretty sure that you guys experienced it where your smash are a lot harder and faster then the next guy that has bigger arm or a more built body.
