    I thought li junhui was using 9000d. Doesn't look like he's using a yellow racquet. Anyone know which one he uses?

    He's using one of the 8000s atm. Can't recall exactly which. It has the orange head.

    I think it is the 7000B actually, bluish black head, in the WTFs.

    He seems to be going back and forth between a few of the models still. I still see the pink N7II too.

    Both Li Jun Hui and Liu Yu Chen switched between racket models more than any players I've seen. As far as I can remember, Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen switched a lot of rackets in their most competitive days but not as frequent as this chinese pair.
    The racket that stand out the most to me used by the chinse pair are N55ii and N7ii pink, the rest I couldn't remember because they switched too often.

    I've seen it recently on the bench on standby. Just because he doesn't reach for it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    Quite shock with the tension they are using. Thought Yamaguchi was around 28 last seen her racket. Cannot believe Takahashi was using this tension as she's More a backcourt player. Maybe she switch to nf800 which is much stiffer than her previous duora 7, hence the need to reduce the tension to align with her current nf800 stiffness. Nevertheless due respect to the Olympics champion in whatever tension she use.

    this isn't gonna change anything but just saying that it really vindicates what I heard of as rumor back then in texts.. didn't post because well, it's text not pic so can't give credibility to anything. Loud shouting is still less effective than black and white, after all.

    Few years ago actually I seen this number floating around (2016) that
    Akane on vt70etune was 25lbs 66um and Ayaka on BG80P on her duo7. Lol back then I kinda believed too since the duora frame is really soft. Especially the 7.

    I guess 24x26 gives 25? Lol

    Ayaka's drop shot on that tension is wow considering the lack of control given by the stringbed...

    I even strung mine at 27-28, while my skill is way way way below them, pathetic me :eek:
    Perhaps i should lower the tension more

    But tension is a personal thing....

    And theirs are done by different stringers... end result feel differs.

    Just because they like fried chicken in USA doesn’t mean I should eat the same in Asia, for example...
