I was just wandering what blade and rubber ma long uses currently thx Michael
I don't know but other readers will. I hope they can help out.
If i'm not wrong, he uses DHS Power PG-7 with Hurricane 3 Rubber with Blue Sponge on his forehand, and Tenergy 64 on his backhand :D And if i'm not wrong on this either, this combination is hella heavy; Chinese blades and rubbers, especially by DHS are quite a chunk to hold, haha!
Thanks a lot :D
He uses DHS Skyline Blue sponge national team version (black) on forehand, and Tenergy 64 on backhand
i thought that chinese had light bats
No, actually they have the heaviest bats
He's using a custom DHS 7 ply blade named the DHS-506. With DHS TG3 on forehand and Tenergy 64 on backhand
Thanks for the view of the shed. Also I particularly appreciated the video on the pen holder Tomahawk serve. I play shake hands, but your demonstration helped me better understand how to get under, top. and side spin.
I am still having trouble with the pendulum serves. I can not seem to get very much speed into these shots.
For the Pendulum serve try to relax your wrist and flick it back and then forward like a snake striking.
Ma Long now uses
BLADE: DHS Hurricane Long 2
BLACK FH: DHS NEO Hurricane 3 (blue sponge)
RED BH: Butterfly Tenergy 05
Chinese team can use any blade and backhand rubber as long as the FH rubber is DHS and black (cause black is spinnier).
@Cloud Cledera, is black really spinnier? Are you sure? I thought that both colors are the same if they are the same rubbers....
I think they are the same too.
Probably the reason why tires are black and not red. It's actually a matter of preference but MOST use black as FH. Even I do.
Same but i'm not sure about the spinnier part
It doesn't matter. Oh and one more thing: Chinese players whose FH are black also use blue sponge on their rubbers because blue sponge is extremely hard and advanced.
hehehe Uses timo boll alc , Neo hurricane 3 with Blue sponge in his forehand and tenergy 64 on hBackhand?
i'm not sure, i think he switches rubbers and blades so often
Why do pros change so often?
Last time i saw him playing, it looks like he is using an alc right now, but i am not quiete sure
all wrong lol.
custom PG7 (5W 2A/C)
fh: black original Skyline TG3 topsheet with national blue neo sponge (not #21 <- this was a test sponge during transition to speed glue ban prior to neo's development)
source: seen his racket up close.
ma long used to use T64 when he was using H3 national neo orange on TBS and ALC

CLOUD CLEDERA .... Ma long didn`t use hurricane long 2 he uses the hurrcane long 3 or dhs hurricane long 2 with dhs hurricane hao656 handle
here`s the hurricane long III guys
The Chinese national tea gets almost everything for free. But they like to use product from China because they get special versions. Many Chinese national players use Stiga blade cloned to look like DHS at the handle because of sponsorship rules. But the reason they use black most time is because DHS make a special rubber and sponge for them That has a blue sponge and black top sheet because it pairs better with the blue sponge. Also quality control can be an issue.
He uses :
FH: Hurricane 3 Neo Provincial
BH : Tenergy 05
Hurricane Long 5
FH: DHS Hurricane 5 National (Blue Sponge)
BH: Tenergy 05
Ma Long uses
Blade: DHS W968Forehand Rubber: Hurricane 3Backhand Rubbers: Tenergy 64
He uses DHs long 3 blade . FH - DHs hurricane 3 national blue sponge version . BH- DHs hurricane national white sponge.
I think his forehand rubber is 41.5 degrees and his backhand rubber is 37 degrees with a thickness of 2.10 both sides because they add boost. Here is a link to a picture of Wang Liqin's blade without rubber, as you can see it is a STIGA Offensive Classic CR with a DHS Handle. You can't tell what a pro uses just going by the handle.
I meant it's a Stiga Offensive CR.
Ma Long doesn't use commercial rubber while the brand is highly known and used, he uses a custom-made rubber that is mainly for him which has a very low angle, most players cannot use that type of rubber.
