    Bao uses the AT700 if I'm not wrong. I saw him using that at the China Open this year.

    What was Lars Paaske using?

    From the photos I don't think it's the mp77, or am I mistaken.

    When Lars became a Yonex sponsored player, he chose the MP77 and has stuck with it since.

    Hafiz Hashim haven't changed his racket. He's still using Ti-10. I doubt many players are still using it.

    My son's coach is yonex sponsered HK team representing Hong Kong play in the senior(older) division internationally. Although when each new racket comes out, he is given 6 cp and sp code for testing(eg MP, AT etc), he is still using a few
    Ti-10cp for competition.

    BTW, hope you accept that he said cp racket uses by pro are somewhat diff from the sp street racket. The main diff, he said, is a "solid" feelings derived from cp racket that sp won't.
    (I'm waiting to buy a NS7000cp from him)

    Everybody in Nusa Mahsuri is using ti 6, I think they have bought all the rackets they can get, even from singapore. its the best racket you can play with its a shame that yonex stop doing it.
