    Didn't get any of his rackets to string, but we saw him with MX80.

    This is pretty much the nail in the coffin for all this talk of Mogensen using a FB. From VTZF to FB to VTZFII? Utter nonsense.

    Why not? I think a change for professionals to another racket is always only a "short" time of adapt. I also tried the FB and have no problems to adapt on it. So why should a pro cannot adapt to it?

    The difference between VTZF to VTZFII is not a small one (my opinion). I rather think that if he really use an VTZFII (the grommets show this) the possibilty is greater that he was using an FB.

    Haha yeah, because the FB is certainly more similar to it than the ZF
    I don't think it's really conclusive proof that he used FB-painted ZFs, but it sure makes it more likely than him switching between complete extremes....also, I have yet to see anyone smash really great with the FB, assuming of course Ahsan is indeed using sth re-painted (which the stringing pattern indicates strongly).
    Amateur players using the FB are fun to watch at times because they can basically only kill the shuttle when it's at the front service line or shorter
    The most amazing thing is when big, strong players use it and completely sacrifice the advantage they could have (using heavy rackets) to get somewhat close to faster players using a balanced to heavy racket.

    Well, when you see FB breaking at low 20's during stringing and consider that Mog is playing 36... I simply cannot believe it.

    Added to this the fact that we were told by a stringer with absolutely no reason to lie.

    I agree. I consider the FB to be little more than a sideshow novelty with almost no practical use above a certain level of play.

    It's incredible fun to play a defensive doubles game with, basically mocking your opponents. But you also tend to clear the 2nd or 3rd lift you get as there's just no penetration possible with it. Even compared to the Braveswords it's a twig. Maybe it'd be better with higher tension (I had some time with a 23lbs and a couple short hits with a 28.6lbs I strung for someone), but that's really not sth I'd try without full sponsorship - 28.6 was pretty uncomfortable already! And the owner told me another stringer had already broken one of his at that tension....

    Have a question about WSX's racket... Curious as to what she's using, I can only tell by the color scheme in the vids of All England, I noticed Li Xuerui was using a N50-II in the finals but can't tell what WSX was using...

    I did one (an F-band) at 30... I'm realizing now how lucky I was and the player was.

    That racket died recently - while I was at the All England, in fact - but only after hitting the floor; on the other hand, we had one go on a mishit by a 100-pound-soaking-wet lad at 23 lb.

    Did you mean Swiss Open? Because Chai/Hong weren't in the AE final....also I believe Hong is still using the N55II....

    Sorry, of course I meant Swiss Open.
    Hong switched from N55II to N7 during the first set of the final.
