      Wow! I did not know Ovtcharov used the Clipper. I thought he was using either the Waldner Senso Carbon v1 or the Ovtcharov Senso Carbon. Hard to see players using the Clipper, too bad he uses the large sidetapes, if he did not we would be able to see the red layers!

      From the Qatar videos it doesnt look like a Waldner Carbon from the side. It looks more like a Stiga Clipper of some sort. Perhaps he have changed handles. He practice a lot with Jorgen Persson and he has always played with Clipper so my money is on Clipper CR.
