Marcus Fernaldi Gideon provides all the muscle power in the dynamic “minion-duo” of him and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. While his partner Kevin plays a more entertaining style of play, Gideon is equally good at doing his part of the job. His jump smashes are very consistent and rarely miss the target or hit the net. His reliability allows his partner Kevin to play freely as he does.

YONEX ASTROX 88D

2018 – Present
Marcus Gideon is currently using the Yonex Astrox 88D. The 88D delivers more power than the 88S and is more suited for a back court player like Gideon. He was one of the first players to start using this racket. In most of the Asian countries, the racket comes with a poster of Marcus Gideon when you buy it from the store.
