    Thanx for the list! It really helps. By putting together this list and some of my own, I have come to the conclusion that the Yonex T-10 is the most populer racquet among professional players! I thought that it would have been the Yonex MP 77.

    I did not realise from the outset that it was a old thread.

    Didn't Hendrawan switch to MP100? I thought, I had seen him playing with the MP100 during the Copenhagn Masters end of last year.
    And what about Gopi? Did he already switch back from MP70 to his iso600?
    Honestly I think, that the MP70 hype with all this news, that players like Gade, Hidayat, Xuanze, Gopichand would switch to it, was just made up by yonex, to boast the MP70 . In case of the MP100 their marketing strategy worked out really successful with Chandra & Tony winning the Olympics. But which pro has made his decision for the MP70, because he actually liked this racket? Gade is still playing his good 'ol slim10, Taufik did always switch back to his cab20 tour in crucial situations, Xia is still playing cab20. And have a look at the recent Japan Open. It seems that yonex has paid a lot of pros to play with the new MP90 right when it's introduced to the public. I always loved to play with the same rackets like the pros, but regarding yonex's marketing tricks, it's really getting hard work to keep up right now...

    Looks like Eriksen switched to Yonex. I just read an article in the malaysian online paper "thestar", where a picture clearly showed the yonex logo on his racket's strings. But maybe he's just switched his sponsor and is still playing with his forza racket.

    Martin Lundgaard-Hansen used an Isometric Ti Swing Power at the Thomas Cup match against China.

    Also Jens Erikson has switched to Yonex now.

    Default yogi

    the nic switch, is it dual personalities? or to forget an evil past?
    kidding aside, i think there is no advantage of using iso or mp by the pros.
    they can hit the sweetspot everytime so the big area of iso and mp just adds to air resistance. The bigger area do help in doubles when returning super fast smashes.

    Mia is currently under contract with Winex and she uses the Ti Swing Power which Winex has also released limited editions (two versions) known as the Ti-01 Limited Edition (MA and MS which are equivalent to the Ti SP SA and the Ti SP SS).

    Default Jens Erikssen

    Well spotted, Olli. Jens has been a Forza player for a looong time, so I was quite surprised to see that he is on a new contract with Yonex. I guess that Yonex finally offered him a check that was fat enough... I wonder what triggered them? He's been top 10 in both doubles and mixed for years, so why sign him now and not earlier? Hmmm... maybe it's because his partners, Martin Lundgaard-Hansen in doubles and Mette Schjoldager in mixed also have Yonex contracts.
