At the Asia Cup
At the Asia Cup i noticed some of the things that i wouldn't have on TV. For example, AS-40 shuttles were used instead of AS-50.
Candra/Sigit = MP100
Thai Doubles Pair = MP100
Zhang Wei/Zhang Jun = Ti-10/Isometric 800 Tour
Hendrawan = Isometric 800 Tour
Taufik Hidayat = Cab 9
Chen Hong = Cab 20 Special
Chen Yu = Ti-10
Lee Hyun = Ti-10
Bosana = Gosen ?
btw only 1 player used a non-Yonex racket. That being Bosana who played the 1st singles for Thailand. Oh yeah, and the Malaysian national team

Actually, I saw on TV that they were using AS-40.
But regarding the rackets, I can't really see though I figured out some were using Ti-10 because it's quite distinctive.
And yes Byro, can we meet this weekend then?

That was asuch a good and accurate information, but i just want to know what is MP100 stand for?
racket which is used by Candra and Sigit, are they red colour background?
i know that, those rackets are YONEX's product. Is that the same which the one Candra used to win the olympic final???
ciao and thanks

MP stands for Muscle Power.
It was the same when Candra won the olympic.

Are you sure? I thought Candra was using an Isometric 800 Tour to win the Olympics.....

I m very very and 100% sure.
Have u ever seen the MP100 poster??
Candra was using the MP100 pairing with Tony Gunawan at the Olympic.
It was clear that he used the MP100.

Re: At the Asia Cup
Must be 5000, but not so sure whether it is Ti, PRO or normal 5000 version.

Sigit was banned after the 98 Singapore Open which was presumably held in July/Aug. Candra and Tony started playing together during the Bangkok Asian Games (or earlier). They played together for the whole of 99 and 2000 so it should be slightly more than 2 years.

I'm almost sure that Chen Hong was using a Cab 20 Special. The bottom of his racket was already Black and gold instead of green and white
