A post I posted in an another thread :

"Jun Mizutani doesn't use the JM Super-ZLC himself but the "simple" JM ZLC. The difference is only the 2 thin lines on the handle (yellow for Super-ZLC, white for ZLC).
There are not so many pros who play with Super-ZLC."


I'm practically sure because in the WTTC, in HD vids , we can see white lines between the black and the "red" of the handle (not yellow) AND Butterfly Japan site said itself, J.Mizutani uses a JM ZLC. Btw, the new JM ZLC is exactly like the Super ZLC except the color of the thin lines barely visible (like ZJK Super ZLC , ZLC , ALC almost exactly the same).

clickable link --> Jun Mizutani equipment (the site said T64 on both side too and is pretty accurate for other Butterfly sponsored players ; it even says Butterfly Spinart on LSW BH which is true)
clickable link --> All Butterfly players equipment

For Ma Long and Xu Xin, I'm pretty sure they come back to Tenergy for the BH (from different sources which seem reliable including XX's coach interview in a chinese ping pong magazine).

Hasn't it already been established that FZD is using a real Infinity and not a Viscaria with Infinity handles? I could be wrong though..

Whatever FZD is using, I don't think it is an Infinity. :)

i can see from photos that FZD is using an ALC blade but why is everyone always saying its a viscaria? it can be any ALC to be honest, timo boll spirit, michael maze, etc

VISCARIA with stiga Handle??

Here is the thread. I think the real question is, why would someone be sponsored by one company and use equipment from another company when I am sure he can get Butterfly to sponsor him.

Is this fake? Has the photo been manipulated?

One thing we do know, FZD did use a Viscaria as a kid.

I thought it was fake at first. But, I am not so sure. I just think it is completely dumb that he may be using absolutely nothing from Stiga but their money. :)

There was a pic claiming to be Fan's personal blade with rubber removed showing the faint print of Viscaria on the face. Anyway if he is using any Butterfly ALC it should well be Viscaria because he use it before signing up with Stiga.

Ah...Carl has it nailed.

Pro's Equipment 2015 Update

Now I must admit, I really don't understand this kind of thing.

I doubt FZD is making any more from Stiga than he would in the long run from Butterfly. He is using Butterfly rubber on his backhand too. By using Stiga he seems to be ensuring that he will not be using anything from his sponsor except for their money.

Now, I do understand why Wang Liqin used a Stiga Clipper with a DHS handle (National Pride and promotion of a good company from China). But why would FZD use Stiga as a sponsor, not use their blades, not use their rubbers and ensure that he is deceiving his fans when he does advertisements that say he is using a blade he definitely is not using?

He seems to be hurting his own image and the trust of his fans by doing this. And I can't imagine he is gaining more than he would if he took sponsorship from a company whose products he actually uses.

But I also can't fathom why ZJK has so many blades with his name on it and doesn't use any of them. Why wouldn't he get Butterfly to just make him exactly what he wants?

Why wouldn't FZD get Stiga to make him exactly what he wants?

To me this is both foolishness and a mystery.
