    At which point in time? He retired from the BWF Tour in 2018 and I don’t think there is much footage of him available after that.

    Edit: At least in 2017 he was playing a Li-Ning N70:


    Before that, I have no clue. Maybe try the search function in this thread and see if anything pops up.

    He used N7-I Version for a while and then switched to the "older" N70-I Version which he used until his retirement from international badminton. Maybe Bao Chunlai gave him his old stock just like Zhao Jianhua gave his Boron2s to Sun Jun ;)

    Some Victor rackets also are getting manufactured in China. Maybe that's why they saw an opportunity to sponsor some Chinese Players?

    Yeah you're right. I just checked it and 100% the same.
    So it was what he used before switching to 88s i guess

    To give an actually helpful response to you, I haven't seen LYD use an 88s this year in tournament.

    I see this and I raise you a



    88S white/red yo.

    Not exactly exhibition to me, considering they have an actual intent to prove a point so I guess it’s actual action/warfare? Lol

    Ahhhhh. Why does Yonex feel the need to have so many colours for the same racquets. Too much to keep track of.

    The first is from 2017/2018. The second is from the AE 2020 Legends Vision. He tends to use the 88S now only in sponsored exhibition events. In the AE2020 tournament itself he was using the NF700. Highly unlikely he will ever switch off from it. It is as close to his favourite BS12/09 as he'll ever get from YY for now.

    hard to say with victor krp's whether it's heavier stiffer, sometimes there are exceptions.

    i own a tk9000 krp 3u, and surprisingly it's only 295mm bp, 89g dry. And I had a chance to weigh 7 copies from different shops, they all have this exact same weight and bp. Plays as even balanced as the old mp99 or ti10 when playing, which is contrary to the consumer grade sledge hammer that is the tk9000 3u with its 305mm+ bp.

    Most of the players I know using overgrip
    Most of them using Yonex AC102, as far as I know.
    Even for Lining sponsored players .
    Victor sponsored, I dunno.
