Where you take the information about his equipment?

I saw him at the German Open. The backhand rubber is definitely not a Tenergy. Not everybody is playing with Tenergy. He plays with a rubber that has got white sponge. Probably some Nittaku rubber, of course boosted. And the blade, if it is a Boll Spirit, he changed the handle to DHS. But probably he is not playing with the TBS anymore. Maybe he changed back to his DHS blade.

Rubbish. Rosewood of Hurricane King, WLQ never used carbon blades. I'm not sure about the Hurricane as well, i think it is Skyline. Bakhand rubber is either tenergy 64 or nittaku ( renanos ? )
