    If that's the case, it sounds inevitable that Tan Boon Heong will have to switch rackets eventually (or retire!). Will be interesting to see which racket he chooses. He must be one of the very few players in the top 10 that's using a "dying racket"?

    By the way, does anyone know which Yonex racket Fu Hai Feng was using before he switched to Li Ning?

    There is of course some small element of that, after all pros are also human they want to try new things too. But at the end of the day, they have the final say (in most majority of cases) in what they will use during tournament.

    Or they'll just use their old models with painting of new rackets. Back in the days they did it a lot with the old CAB's. And there has been lot of discussions about Taufik's racket as well.

    Maybe in the old days. TH is either using normal Z-Slash or a custom made Z-Slash, but not a re-painted racket.

    I wasn't suggesting that ;-) I'd rather believe the last option you give though.

    Wow, another big smasher using the Ti-10? To me, on average, FHF has the biggest smash in world badminton. Can anyone point me to the exact specs of the Ti-10?

    Yoppy, you need to read the context of my question. Someone said that the Ti-10 is out of production. Therefore, I naturally responded by asking how TBH is still using it.

    Every one was using Ti10 back then, especially there were not too many top end rackets to choose like right now.

    Out of production doesn't neccesarily mean there aren't any of the rackets left. Their are just not being produced new ones, but there's still a lot of them on the shelves, etc.

    Would have been interesting to see which racket FHF would have chosen if he continued to use Yonex. Would he still be using the Ti-10 like TBH?

    I guess being as high profile as TBH, he's probably got his own personal factory for Ti-10's!
