    I haven't watched the video (work blocked youtube :p) but I am guessing that it was the At700 since this was a couple years back right?

    This was in September 2006 at the Madrid World Championships.
    Taufik was playing against Ng Wei - this was the first match for both.

    I'm not sure about this but I think Taufik was using a Nanospeed racquet.
    I don't think he was using the Armortec 700 back then.

    Taufik dont use Nanospeed, does he ? My guess is that he should be using the Armortec 900 Technique. Definitely not Arc Saber 10 yet.

    Which is why I thought he would have been using the AT700. Just a guess anyways :p

    no, he was definitely using AT 700...taufik has been using this racket since 2004 (all england, thomas cup, OG, i think sudirman cup 03 as well) he has nvr used nanospeed rackets...not on tourneys at least (as far as i know :p ) this is the year when he won the asian games in which he was also using AT 700...

    These pro's are stringing their racquets to 35 lb. I wonder if they use one with 20 lb, how fast it will be? Less tension == more power?

    Not necessarily, it depends on the swingstyle I think.

    Pretty much correct..

    ..should be the AT700. And it's the longest used Yonex racket by Taufik.
    As far as i recall, he has used the MP99, AT700, AT900T&P and recently the ArcSaber Z-Slash (maybe a couple others in between)..

    More here:

    ..in Taufik's case, he strung the tension higher for more control..

    I believe he also used the Arc10 for awhile too.

    Have a closer look at the racquet in the 2006 video.
    Is the racquet he's using a Yonex Armortec 700 ? :(

    yup...hands down AT700 mate :D i happen to have the same racket which is why its very easy for me to identify it ;)

    yeah he used mp99 for a very short period of time in 2002-2003. before that he used mp88 and indeed AT700 is the longest used racket by taufik...i think AT700 gives taufik more charisma (more manly than AT900 technique, which is why i think he was playing really badly during that period with AT900technique lol) and won so many titles with the AT700 :D including WC and OG :eek:

    i believe he only used the ArcSaber Z-Slash for a couple of matches during japan open, no?

    I think Taufik should stick to his winning racket armotec 700 like Lin dan used to before switching to Li ning. If taufik wan to switch , he should switch to armotec 700 2rd generation , at least something similar...:cool:
