    I guess you would have to restrict the rackets used list to those he used during his pro career. On which case I think we shouldnt count the Cab 9. Without a doubt he must have used at least one Iso racket between the Cab 20 and the MP77. Maybe the Iso 800? (I know Lin Dan used this)
    Would be good to have a thread like this for Peter Gade, starting with the Iso Tour 300
    Cab 9 -> Cab 20 -> Cab 20 Tour -> MP99 -> MP77 -> AT700, etc. ...

    He already did Gade's

    After all the 2003 WC final in Birmingham was Cab 20 vs Cab 21 (cmiiw), it is not a must to have an ISO in there .

    See him with MP99 in the 2002 Thomas Cup and MP77 at 2003 WC (and switching to AT700 after it) ...
    Looking at the AE1999 that could be an some sort of isometric shaped for Taufik ... if he could bloody keep it still for a sec . Cab20 Tour was definitely Sydney 2000 and beyond ...

    Maybe the MP77 inspired the color-way for the ARC 11 TH?

    I was surprised both Gade and TH went from V1 At700 to V2.

    IMHO Version 2 AT700 is awful.

I remember the feeling when I first used it the shuttlecock flew off the strings exactly how Id always imagined playing with such a great racquet should feel.

    When I became a national junior player I used the Carbonex 20. It really suited my style of play and like a partner we grew together. Since then, I have stayed with YONEX and used no other brand."

    Ah..alrite,20 tour i should still be able to get it.I'll renew the picture later then..

    While for 20 tour,i think it should be acceptable,since we still can trace the pics of it.But cab9,i think that's before he became an athlete..

    Anyway,Thx olli and demolidor for the help!

    We never know whether it's really the v2,or v1 repainted.

    I agree with u,v2 definitely felt different from the v1.More flex,but more head heavy.Players that got used to v1,won't be easy to switch to v2.

    Smichz congrats on a great thread really enjoying this one and the Peter Gade tribute. Since we have already completed 2 of the 4 Kings how about a thread for LCW and Lin Dan (while with Yonex). I know they arent due for retirement just yet.

    This is by far my favourite thread on the whole forum. Fantastic job, I hope TH gets to see this thread one day. You have done a really fantastic job for (imo) the best player of all time. Not the fastest, or the strongest, or most successful etc. but to me, he is the best. I have not enjoyed watching another player play as much and his skill to me is unique and exceptional and being a player is not only about what is done on court, but also off-court as well. I hope one day I can achieve 1% of what he has and bring a smile and joy to millions like he has. Great tribute.

    Smichz,
    Im not sure im qualified to tell you which rackets LCW and LD have used. This maybe requires Demolidors expertees. I will have a bash at it. happy to be corrected.
    LCW ??>NS8000> AT700 V1>NS9900> AT700P> AT900LCW> VT80>VTZF>VTZFOLY> VTZF (3U/G4)
    LD??> ISO900>MP99>AT700V1>li-ning (3U/G4)

    You'd have to throw in the AT700Ltd for Lin Dan, probably after the 1st gen At700.

    Not really, he never touched the thing . But we have to throw a Kason (or was it SOTX?) in there that he used in club competition iirc ... should be around the forum which particular model it was.
    Looks like it was SOTX ... now to filter out a model(s) ...

    Should be AT700 2nd gen since it was at the 2006 WC? Or Gen 1 when looking at the clip ... (it'd better be )

    Judge for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ag-X5bOJdcE

    Looks like it was AT700OC in this match and AT700NC in a later round (his exit) http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...08#post1329108
