      Fan Zhendong equipment

      I am aware that FZD uses Stiga VPS Infinity (used to be Butterfly Viscaria), I am curious to know if anyone knows (or has pics) showing exactly what rubbers he has on FH and BH. Now most of us would guess Hurricane 3 blue and some kind of Tenergy (despite the fact that Stiga says he uses Calibra Tour M which is possible). I have Googled and seen some pictures but I don't have any clear pictures of his rubbers (for example is it Skyline III or Hurricane III?) and is it a Tenergy on the BH?

      I think FZD plays on his forehand a H3. Hes more looping than driving so H3 makes more sense. Backhand maybe a T64. Did anybody else noticed that his style is similiar to ZJKs style? Both of them are making a pendulum serve, are flipping over the table really good and play both sides strong topspins. Completely different to Ma Long who plays with open serves and more forehand drive. I didnt see the blade neither well, but i think something from Stiga.

      I noticed it too. So they actually have the same nemesis: Ma Long. Fan Zhendong has never defeated Ma Long before. His best performance against him was in China National Games. He was 3:2 in the lead and was 9:8 up in the 6th set.
      Fan Zhendong is developing very fast. I mean really fast. Six month ago he lost 4:0 to Zhang Jike in WTTC. Four month after (two month ago) he defeated Zhang Jike and Xu Xin in a row and was so close to beat Ma Long in China National Games. Now he defeated 3 players in top ten (Zhang Jike, Dimitrij Ovtcharov and Vladimir Samsonov) in a row in German Open.
      If he continues like this he will be soon in a level that no one reached before. He can become on of the greatest players of all time.

      Fan Zhendong used to play with Stiga Infinity VPS V, some blue sponge DHS rubber on forehand and Calibra Tour M on backhand. But I'm not sure if he also used an Infinity VPS V at the German Open.

      I saw on the ITTF broadcast for the German Open at least the Stiga Infinity VPS V handle, it's not a clear shot (a distance show when he is looping on the forehand for example) but it looks like the same blade as before. I agree that it's a blue sponge DHS rubber on the FH (can see on the ITTF videos) but this doesn't rule out DHS Skyline III for example. Wondering how you know for sure he has Calibra Tour M on the BH, have you seen a clear photo? The sponge colour of Tenergy 64 (for example) and Calibra Tour series are kind of orangish-redish (everyone sees colours a bit differently) and from a distance video shot say a BH loop, it's not really possible to be sure I think.

      In China forum, most people said FZD equipment is Stiga Infinity VPS V, forehand rubber is H-3 and backhand rubber Stiga calibra Tour M. However according to recent photo published by http://www.yoger.com.cn/info-16241.html, the handle logo shown Big STIGA wording, doesn't like Infinity VPS?

      Okay thanks guys for the answers, I am a penhold player but recently started to play and learn shakehand style as well. I have ordered Infinity VPS (flared handle) and happen to have Calibra Tour Soft spare rubber so I will use it on the BH. I actually happen to have two sheets of provincial Neo H3 but already cut for penhold racquet, I will modify it and have a go with it. I never boost my rubbers though which is why I have never been a huge fan of chinese rubbers I will try to provide a review later later (prob more like Jan 2014) when I get a decent hit with VPS. I need to learn (or at least modify) a lot of basic technique from penhold to shakehand and will need a fair bit of time for that
