    Chou Tien Chen drops the VTZF1 and joins the DUO10 bunch.

    While Greysia Polii changes from NR900 to NR-ZSPn (new yellow color).

    Even if Paul and I see it next week, it might not have decals on it, so we'd be guessing.

    KSH's looks like a new TK; the TK frame decals have the sort of wing-like spread along the bottom of the head near the T.

    EDIT: Looks like it could also be a new JS, I'm seeing some decals on the 9 and 3 o'clock which is indicative of that line of rackets.

    KHN's looks like a new HX; the signature asymmetrical crossed decals along the 1 o'clock/7 o'clock.

    Ko's new 'mystery' racket was all decaled up at the German Open, so probably isn't far away from being announced.

    And YYS not using his signature racket already. Srsly? :rolleyes:

    We strung five for Kim GJ last night.

    However, the blank prototype is NOT the same racket.

    Is one of Kim's rackets going to go mysteriously missing for an hour or so by chance Mark?

    Paul posted a pic of some of the Victor racquets he strung at the All Englands day 1 on facebook. You'll see that off to the side there is the shaft of the prototype/unmarked racket. Come on Paul, you can't just tease us like that!

    Paul posted another photo of the racket. Unfortunately it's too blurry to see what's written on the shaft. Looks like "Jetspeed", but can't say for sure.
