      At least he will become entertaining to watch executing kamikaze styled chop blocks

      It will be very interesting to see how Liam Pitchford adopts to new rubbers while coming from Tenergy series.
      Most of the times practice, patience and an observant mind answers all your questions

      So apparently there are three versions of the ZX Gear blade. “IN”, “OUT”, and “FIBER”. I’m assuming that he’s using the fiber version.

      Yeah - you couldn't make anything else out on the handle to work out which it is. Im sure the sales of that will go up! :-)

      It's the ZX-Gear IN he's chosen, all three ZX-Gear blades are composite, using Zexion carbon fiber technology. The ZX-Gear IN is the fastest of the three.
      They're nice blades, all made in Japan.

      Hey Haggisv, You are correct about his blade choice. He posted somewhere on his instagram. I thought the OUT version was the fastest. The, IN version a bit slower with emphasis on spin and placement and the FIBER version the slowest of the 3 rated "OFF". Both IN and OUT are rated OFF+. I recenlty acquired the IN version and it's GREAT! such a joy to hit with! SUPER CRISP feeling on impact (which I prefer) with good control and speed as well. It feels like an OSP Virtuoso -. I'm loving it. According to their website, VICTAS player Tazoe Hibiki reviews all three. He recommends the FIBER version for women and personally prefers the OUT version and recommends it for players who prefer to play mid to far distance. See here: https://www.victas.com/ja_jp/journal...19/08/30-11-31 The video doesn't have subtitles but just translate the text and you can pretty much make out what he is saying. I can't find the interview with "PITCH" but i remember reading he likes the IN version for close to table play and flicks.

      It sounds like OUT is the fastest with the carbon layers under the outer plies. What’s the composition of the IN & Fiber?

      The Gear-in is actually a little thicker (and stiffer) compared to the Gear out, but it's hard to give the blade a single number for speed, because it has gears...(pun intended).
