    Interesting that Chen Hong switched to the AT700.

    Yep mod.

    I'm surprised that there are no Gosen racquets whatsoever.

    Gosen rackets are mainly only used by Malaysian National Team as they are the official sponsor. From one of Cheung's list, it appears Babolat is a decent-sized sponsor in Europe.

    Yep. . . I knew that but I wonder why it wasn't mentioned on the list. Maybe it is kept on the down lo? The Babolat statistics kind of surprised me too. I thought Forza would be more popular even though it's a Danish brand.

    according to the Gosen catalogue, Wang Chen is using the new Aermet WPP 3500, but actually she is still using BR2500(red).

    Couldn't find the full information. If you can find out what other players use, we'd be much obliged if you can put it down. That goes for Forza, Gosen, Victor, Winex

    Rackets that world class players use

    Does anyone know what rackets (brand, model, string tension, etc) some of the top players (eg world top ten men and women players in both singles and doubles) use?

    I guess if I use the same rackets then I can only ever blame my skill and never the equipment again!!! ;)

    Pierre,

    As you may guess, Yonex is the biggest brand that the elites use. Here is another thread that answers your question: Players and Their Rackets.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Players and the racquets

    I'm deeply surprised that the top players don't opt for the top-range racquets? I mean, who would prefer a Yonex mp77 to an mp100, unless they are paid specifically to use that model?

    Is there an "official" Yonex web site as far as their rackets is concern? It seems that their Korean site (http://www.yonex.co.kr) has info on the biggest range (but nothing on armortec) but unfortunately I can't read Korean. The Japanese and US/Canada sites show only very limited range.

    Does Yonex try to market/promote different models in different countries?

    Re: Players and the racquets


    Was a discussion about this earlier and it could be to promote their sales but as well benefit their game. No one is going to use an MP77 and play poorly with it just for small cash difference.
