      Ishikawa Changed FH Rubber?

      I remember Kasumi Ishikawa is using Blue Sponge Hurricane 3 as her FH rubber.

      Look at this photo of Japan Open, it is definitely blue sponge.

      https://flic.kr/p/2ge3krw

      However in another photo of the same tournament, she is using a Butterfly rubber. It is the old asymmetrical Butterfly logo, so probably T05, at least not the newer rubbers like T05H or Dignics.

      https://flic.kr/p/2ge2Qkp

      It is very surprising for a pro player to change equipment in the same tournament?

      Any thoughts?

      If it is true, why did the coach allowed the change during the tournament?

      Kasumi Ishikawa only played 2 matches in Japan Open.

      R32 vs Miyuu Kihara
      Kasumi worn yellow shirt in this match, so should be using H3 blue sponge.

      R16 vs Sun Yingsha
      Kasumi worn greenish blue shirt in this match, so should be using T05.

      Umm... if I really have to guess, maybe she switched FH to T05 in order to increase her FH speed while playing against Sun Yingsha? And this strategy was agreed or even initiated by her coach?

      Okay thanks

      I looked at this page:

      https://tabletennis.guide/equipment.php?gender=2

      But I guess that it hasn't been updated for a while then.
