    The MP99 has an even balance (vs. MP100's head heavy weighing), and so is much more maneuverable. That is the main difference I am aware of.

    Xia is known for using Cab20, but he did use AT700 at times in earlier round.

    It seems like there are still some players are still preferring Ti-10 :)
    Mainly Asians........I wonder if it's because it's easier to get Ti-10 in Asia, so players don't have give up the lovely Ti-10s? ;)

    If he hasn't changed since the Copenhagen Masters, Peter Rasmussen is playing with a Yonex Cab-21 with Carlton logo on the strings.

    "herovc: anyone know what weight (2U/3U/4U) their racquets are? :confused:"

    I also want to know that, especially the mp99 users, like Lin Dan and Jonas Rasmussen.

    The CP version of the MP-99 only comes in 2U - so Lin is using a 2U racket. I'm not sure about Jonas. Generally pros tend to use heavier rackets, but all the Forza rackets Jonas used to play with before were 3U versions. Aditionally there is a general trend to use lighter rackets in nowadays: MP-88, AT-series only come in 3U or 4U (but very headheavy so comparable with balanced 2U rackets).

    I don't think you will know those very details unless you are actually having one in hand or you are the one who string their racquets ;)

    Players and their rackets on Yonex International

    I have visited the web site of Yonex International showing pictures of players, their rackets model and shoes models:

    http://www.yonex.co.jp/intl/badminton/player/index.html

    I put up a summary of as follows:

    ARMORTEC-800OF Halim Haryanto, Ha Tae Kwon, Ra Kyung Min
    Flandi Limpele


    ARMORTEC-800DE Candra Wijaya, Sigit Budiarto, Yang Wei, Eng Hian

    ARMORTEC-700 Huang Sui, Zhou Mi, Gong Ruina, Lee Hyun Il,

    Taufik Hidayat

    Muscle Power-100 Camilla Martin, Zhang Jun

    Muscle Power-99 Gao Ling, Xie Xingfang, Chen Hong, Lin Dan,
    Jonas Rasmussen. Zhang Ning, Yao Jie

    Muscle Power-88 P.G.Christensen, Mette Schjoldager, Mia Audina

    Muscle Power-77 Lars Paaske

    Ti-10 Kim Dong Moon

    Ti-6 M.Hafiz Hashim

    Ti-Swing Power M.Roslin Hashim

    Carbonex 21 Lee Dong Soo, Yoo Yong Sung

    Carbonex 20 Xia Xuanze

    I was surprised to learn that some top players are not using the latest rackets (those colored orange).

    Of course beside Yonex, some players are using other brands of rackets.
