    Yeah, I was a bit surprised by that as well. I expected a lot more players to be using the BG80. The BG80 tends to be very popular with European players.

    OK, this confirms Mogensen uses a specially made ArcFB.... at 34/36 lbs, there is NO WAY the racket will not snap 1/2 with the smash he's making. :eek:

    Has anyone got stringing details of players sponsored by other brands? Say Victor for Korean team and Li Ning for China?

    Would like to know what strings/tension the Korean team are using especially LYD/YYS and also the top Chinese players.

    Judging by the number of breaks last week, 40 lb...

    From memory, LYD has about 34, but that's at least two years old.

    I Heard rumours outside that although li ning has new string now , No 1, 5 and 7 string. Most of the china players still stick to BG 65 and 66 UM.

    so what the difference between 30x30 vs 30x32. Will it play the same? or worst? I assume 30x32 average is 31lb correct?

    Just do a little bit of research in the forum and you will find this:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php/54129-Why-2lbs-On-The-Cross

    ...and if you spend some time reading through, it will answer all of your questions.

    And before we enter the same loop once more: No, it will not make that significant difference in generating power if you have 30x30 or 30x32 lbs. tension.
