    Posted: 05/07/2010 at 5:44am
Together with Alex I have decided to start a thread to gather all questions, and discussions, about the pro's equipment!

This means:

1. All off topic will be deleted, or moved out in separate topics.

2. All new topics posted with questions about the pro's equipment will be moved into this one!

I have put in a few pro's that I know, and I will keep this first post updated with a list of the pro's and their equipment.

I will do alphabetically after their last name.

If you are absolutely certain about a players equipment, please put it like this in your post, so I can just copy it into the list:

Ma Long
R:Timo Boll Spirit
F:H3 Neo
B:Tenergy 64


Boll, Timo
R:Timo Boll ALC
F:Tenergy 05
B:Tenergy 05


In other words:

The Players Name
Blade
FH rubber
BH rubber

I have updated the first post, and will include both male and female players in the list.

Now I know that we have a thread for both male and female pro's equipment already, but the reason I'm doing this ks that both threads contain what the players used before the glue ban.

The colour of the sponge! (I'm so glad I got here first)

One of them is probably a bit harder than the other. Could be other differences to, but I'm not sure..

Some say that blue sponge is more elastic and react better with booster/tunning

Updated the first post.

Does anyone know what Christophe Legout is using?

It's some sort of Tenergy, and the blade is supposedly TBS, but that just doesn't seem right..

Schalger, note that Hoyama and Matsumoto are J-penholders. They use only one rubber.

For Legout, he uses T05 with TBS (legout handle)

Moved it into this topic, gariklokin..

It does look like a carbon mix, possibly arylate/carbon?





Edit: Found a picture of Xu Xin's racket, and that backhand rubber is certainly not Tenergy.

Also Chuang Chih-Yuan's racket which seems to be some sort of custom BTY blade with Tenergy 64 on the red side, and some type of Tenergy on the black side.

Looks to me like Xu Xin's picture is an old one. I know that he uses the Stiga Offensive NCT now not the YEO(which is in the picture)

The picture that I captured during Kuwait open shows that he is using an orange sponge.

Wang Hao's BH?
I've read from somewhere that it is a thicker version of Sriver EL.
I know it is hard to believe.

Looks to me like Xu Xin's picture is an old one. I know that he uses the Stiga Offensive NCT now not the YEO(which is in the picture)


maybe only handle is new?

It was uploaded to http://www.fotop.net/rxng/cntt/ 4, now 5, days ago.

The Kuwait open was over 2 months ago, so it's not unlikely that he has changed his bh since then..

Yeah I don't think so either. The top image has a line on the bottom of the handle where the butterfly logo is but the bottom image doesn't
