    Uhhhhh I don't see how you came up with that statement. PBL season 2 I believe was when LYD tested out the Frosty Blue LCW DUO10. Cheng Wen Hsing used the LYDN in the final year of her professional career. Jan O'Jorgenson used the N90 when he was with LN years ago and that's a racket synonymous with LD (it even has his initials printed on the cone).

    More examples above.

    Might just be the pic but her grip there looks pretty thick! When i saw her at all england it looked so thin it was like super grap direct to wood with no overlap.. unless ofcourse thats not even her actual racket or grip setup we see there

    In PBL season I saw LYD uses D10 frosty blue, thinking he was trying out the d10 in this unofficial tournament. After a while he went back to Arc 11.

    That's a typical wide angle mobile phone lens effect. No way that you can judge the actual grip size based on that picture without any other reference.

    No worries. You learn something from the new every day.
    Is it? I thought it was simply a viewing angle thing. Foreground always looks bigger than background when you cant an object so extremely.

    Absolutely correct. And the more wide angle the lens, the worse this effect gets. But apart from that, it's her typical overgrip on wood setup, so I don't see any reason to assume that it's a bigger grip than usual.

    Ah. Yeah. Mentally correcting for the angle of the photo its quite obvious the grip is done pretty thinly. Alot less overlap than I'd expected.

    Not sure whether this has already been mentioned (if yes, i apologize) but Chen Long is back using his old trusted Flame N55 and red Lining Shoes for China Open.

    Marcus Ellis is still using one right now. Not sure if he is currently the only one using it, but there are very few, especially at top levels.

    I know Tan Wee Kiong used ZF1, as seen in the 2014 Thomas cup. I don't think he ever played with ZF2
