Haha some of their blades look really cheap like WLQ's. I bet it is not but they look like that xD. Cool post! DHS on FH, Butterfly on BH seems the most common setup for these guys. Would that mean Butterfly rubbers are a little slower in general than DHS?

A lot of them are using DHS Hurricane 3. I might buy a sheet and see what its like!

All of them are using the blue sponged hurricane3, not the ones that you get from your suppliers. I got mine from China, and they don't sell it off the rack. Do a bit of scouting and hunting, and you just may get them.

To the ones who wants to try these out: they are extremely difficult to play with, they are slow in the slow game and only when you really hit the ball hard there will be speed in the rubber. I don't recommend these rubbers for anyone. If you played these from the start of your "career" you can manage or else it will take a lot of time to get adjusted to! I played them for a while and anyone can play them but they wont get any out of them if they are not high level players. And if you have a "euro-style"-loop (little bit of bended arm and use of elbow), you will have to get used to use your full arm and underarm pretty much stretched with A LOT of strenght and speed. Check out how Maze and Boll is looping vs. Ma Long and Wang Liqin.

I don't think it's actually "their" blades, but someone who knows what the they're playing with and then replicated it.

Hey Relin :)

I got them from TTProvider, they are the official bats that the players used in the China Open 2011. You can tell the high quality of the rubbers and blades. You can see the air bubbles in the blades... look fast :p
