    Most pros seem to prefer the heavier 2U models, so the Swing Power series are simply too light.

    (There ARE pros that use the SP series though)

    How about changing the organisation of the list?

    List the racquet, then which players use (have used) that racquet. That would allow flexability when players do change their racquets.

    Yes, that's a good idea. But really, shouldn't this information go in the review section for each racquet?

    Probably,

    noticed that Huang Sui has changed back to Ti10 for this tournament. She used MP90 in Japan (and lost that time!)

    Hi

    Does anyone know what racket Taufik Hidayat was using in the Indonesian Open? It didn't look like a MP90 from the pictures in worldbadminton.net

    Thanks

    The problem with this thread is that the pros switch their racquets too. For example, in the pic above of Zhou Mi; she is/was using a Ti Swing Power and on Yonex Korea website, it says that she is/was using a MP-100.

    Also Hian/Limpele used to use Yonex, then switch to Babolat, and now back to Yonex and even within Yonex, Hian recently switched to the new Armourtec.

    Man, after saying words without the u since I talk on other forums where most of the population is from the US, I start writing essay papers with American grammar. So it's horrible. I can't really say I'm Canadian now eh? :)

    For Canadians, wouldn't Armortech mean something completely different? Wait I'm thinking of Amoir... nevermind :eek:

    And shouldn't the British variant be Armourtech!!!?

    Well it doesn't need to be since it is the name of the product and not simply a generic noun. But let's not continue this as it really isn't on topic here.:)
