    Heard that sometimes Momota plays with a 4U astrox 99
    But not sure if it’s only during training or even official matches

    No, Momota used 3UG6. Some stringer showed his racket once.

    Chen Long used the Axforce during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The model is Axforce 80. Chen Long has stopped using the Flame N55 since 2017.[​IMG]

    He has been playing with the N55 in many tournaments in 2019 and 2020. In 2018 he used the Calibar 900 and transitioned back to the N55 before using the Axforce in 2021...

    From what I can remember he hasn't used any repaints in the past, so I would doubt it.

    But keep in mind, that the CP edition rackets (which he most likely is using) can have different specs when compared to the "normal" versions of the racket

    I feel Nanoflare 700 is more for Intermediate players, so far i seen mostly ladies mix double, or ladies use Nanoflare 700 rackets.

    The majority of the Korean team are using NF700 if I recall and Wang Chi Lin Taiwan MD.

    Yes agree..

    How about Nanoflare 800.. I guess most international players uses 3u for 800.

    It looks like Kunlavut Vitidsarn gave up the NF800 for the 88D pro and Kidambi switched to the Tectonic 9

    Mads Pieler Kolding switched to a LN 3D Calibar 900, but still wearing Yonex shoes.
    Does anybody know his sponsorship status with either brand?

    I would assume Mads Pieler Kolding sponsorship is gradually changing. Considering I haven't seen anyone on the Danish badminton team using the 3D Caliber 900 (Drive) racket. Somewhat similar to Yuta Watanabe's equipment in the half end of 2019 (Aeronaut 9000C, Yonex 65 Z 2's).

    It seems like KV went back with the NF800 with yesterdays match against Wang Tzy Wei, and against Jonotan Christie today he's using the Astrox 99 pro? Correct me if I'm wrong please.
