    Thanks for the info and pictures, demolidor.

    I had applied one layer of those tape on my AT900P, i noticed that by applying those tape, it is really helpful to bring down the shuttle. It makes the racket heavier at the beginning, however if you constantly used it, you will get used to it, eventually. LD & CL used it during practice for sure.

    Here is Joachim Fischer N. applying the athletic tape on the top of his frame but in one strip, unlike Lin Dan & Co. Iirc Boe does it in the same manner as Fischer:

    There was an official announcement that AHM and NAT are sponsored by Victor. They also won AE with Victor. How can you have missed that? :P

    Not been following badminton so closeley, have you? Indonesia's team apparel is now sponsored by Victor while the players have individual contracts for individual tournaments.

    Ahmad: Bs12N
    Natsir: Bs12L (new lady's version of the Bs12)
    SBL is right (Sw37N)
    JYN uses the Bs11 afaik (as does Kim Ha Na, and a lot of the other WD players)

    Guys tend to stay with the Bs12, Mx80 primarily (some JJS and SW users, but not a whole lot).

    Markis Kido, her XD-partner and others are sponsored by Li-Ning. And they wear Li-Ning too.

    Check indonesian player-subforum here. I'm too lazy to post the link :P
    Yonex, Victor, Flypower, Li-Ning are the new sponsors for all indonesian players.

    I've also seen some doubles pairs with different sponsors (player 1 Yonex, player 2 Li-Ning).

    *his XD partner
    Kido hasn't been part of the Ntl team for a while though, so he has been free to choose his sponsor since then, as did Setiawan when he competed independantly.

    And you forgot Astec, an Indonesian brand - they got a few players as well.

    Yup, I forgot.

    Oh well, I think I will have to do some research to understand how these associations and national teams work

    This is what happens when you start University. You miss out on the really important things in life, like who uses which racket

    That is true and I think VT80 as well in a league match in the same period. Time flies when you don't follow the results anymore (thought I saw a vid or pics of him in training with NR800 recently but must have been longer ago than I thought )

    Some of you guys have good pics on the tape, and it do look like athletic tape for Fischer, but not for the CHN players. And with the thickness CL puts, it does not make much sense. If he was to apply lead tape, a small layer of 5cm on each side would be enough to get the same effect.
    Moreover, look the way Fischer puts the tape : on top of the frame, over the grommets. This is easy. But if you do like CL or LD, and put the tape on the side of the frame, the curve of the frame makes it awkward. You have to constantly cut the tape to adjust because the tape is of course straigth.
    The pics of CL's racquet is not clear enough, but it looks a bit like something that has already the shape of the racquet, or can be bended.
    3 grams are not that much, j4ckie.
