    A JS10... befits her tricky netshots and quick plays! Then again, her partner Chan's smashes from the backcourt are awesome too, with the same racket. She switched over from the Yonex Nanoray Z Speed when Malaysia changed sponsors...

    If you look at MS or WS, you can find some TK. For example, TTY uses TK.

    It's seems the multi-sided Duora 10 from Yonex is increasingly popular with top players - Lee Chong Wei, the Denmark Men's Doubles pair, India's HS Prannoy, Japan's Kento Momota and Hiroyuki Endo, and many more!

    On that note, spare a thought for Carsten Mogensen who's hoping to get back to the game.

    Quite the testament that for fast/successful MD, there is no place for head heavy racquets.

    The only one I know who uses a TK, TK9000 in doubles (XD), is Reginald Chan Chun Hei.

    Yes, i also saw them, but they are a few. I am so fun about racket choosing of victor player's behavior.

    And Reginald uses a taped K9000... even taller than standard.

    Watching Korea's Jung Jae-Sung thunder down those smashes with his namesake Victor racquet at the 2012 London Olympics has made me more determined to never let go of my Victor MX JJS!

    My preciousssssss!

    More and more women's professional players gave up Victor HX800 for Victor JS10 or other rackets.

    Goh Liu Ying - HX800 to JS10
    Ashwini Ponnappa - HX800 to JS10,
    Kim Ha Na - HX800 to JS12


    Not sure about Chang Ye Na, Vivian Hoo and Woon Khe Wei, but recently I saw Vivian not using HX800.

    I need to ask again. What is the Victor racket used by Kevin Sukamuljo in India Open currently in progress?

    BS12N if I'm not mistaken. I know he used it some time last year as well. Can't recall which tournament though but it was on a TV telecast.
