    I tried to make a list of what rackets the champs where using:

    I came up with:

    Lin Dan : Li Ning woods N90

    Fu Haifeng: Li Ning Flame N50
    Cai Yun: Li Ning Rocks N33

    Lu Lan : Li Ning Rocks N30

    Zhang Yawen : Li Ning Storm N77
    Zhao Tingting : Li Ning Flame N50

    Thomas Laybourn : Yonex Nanospeed 9900
    Kamilla Rytter Juhl : Forza Ti550 N-Forze VS

    Did I spot right :)

    Well the thread was about what the world champions used.. I think there are other threads about general pro players and their rackets..

    The Korean Victor players, the Swedish Fukuda player and so on, so on..

    And your list is not even correct, to begin with.. Liliyana Natsir (INA) used a Arcsaber 7 (that I noticed when I watched her play today) ...

    Are you just copy/paste YY marketing material, or did you actually watched for what players where using??? :p

    And Xu Huaiwen ?!?! When did she play??

    Kido & Hendra, didn't use many rackets in this WC... sigh...

    I'm not positive, but I think WCH uses the Aerogel 5000.

    After watching the just-concluded WC at Hyderabad, it seems to me that whatever good brand rackets you put in the hands of the good players, it matters very little to their performance. They still play well. :p

    Just look at LD and CJ and the bulk of CHN team who have changed from using Yonex rackets to brand new Li Ning rackets and how they still dominate the game! :eek:

    And others who have changed to Victor rackets and some European players who use European brands, they still can play well. ;)
