    All true. Yet the fact that other young players (most of whom are a bit older than Harimoto) have been able to improve illustrates the point: namely that the thing that's "stalling" Harimoto's...

    Agreed 100%.
    I just don't agree with the suggestion that, because he's already 18, he won't be able to alter his technique and/or game strategy to improve further. He may or may not get much better...

    Really? I'm not sure why that would be the case. Many of the absolute top players are still at the very pinnacle of the sport in their 30s. Timo Boll is 40 and he's managed to keep developing his...

    The Tibhar Lebesson is worth a mention. It's a little different to most 5-ply allwoods as it has mahogany medial plies which give it (I think) a nice feel. It also has a slightly smaller than average...

    Good call on switching to a 5-ply allwood!

    Of the three options you've listed the Yasaka Sweden Extra is probably the best shout for (as you describe yourself) a developing player with a weak...

    For me it's a shoulder injury.
    That's the main reason why I'm unsure about a transition to Chinese-style rubbers. I'm having a go and quite enjoying the DNA Dragon Grip, but I'm not sure about the...

    Hasn't ML has some injury concerns in recent years? If so, and especially given his physically intense style of play, I could understand the CNT bosses wanting to preserve him for 2023 while at the...

    Hi ADurao,
    I'm glad to hear that you've found Butterfly rubbers such a good fit for your game. 👍

    I agree with Andy's recommendation for something along the lines of Rakza 7.

    What others have said about different coaching strategies and so on is perfectly valid but, in the absence of any...

    Vodak blades come pre-sealed. That said, whatever sealant they use is so thin that you probably wouldn't know it's there. I know some folks prefer their blades unsealed (either so they can seal them...

    It sounds like you're an allround player and, if that's the case, then Rakza 7 is a good option (and considerably cheaper than the Butterfly options you mentioned).

    The HL V is a fair bit more expensive than the Viscaria; that would explain some, but not all, of the popularity issue. Also, the Viscaria was already very popular well before ML became the superstar...
