    Arisa Higashino seems to have moved from the VT FB towards the Nanoflare 700 it seems. Here are pictures taken during the WC semi-final (click to enlarge):

    3U if going by the Aeronaut 9000 he is using. Swing weight is pretty similar to the 3U AX88D.

    Seriously I find that 88d 4u is too light. Prefer 88D 3u. Was quite shock when photos of ginting racket shows 4u. He really need to execute fast swing to burst out the 4d NAMD power

    The idea of MS isn't about power anymore. It's about making less mistake while being to play good read. If you think 3U is going to win you games, you should really go back to the drawing board.

    Drawing board is for tactics and strategy discussion, nothing to do with racket used. My point to everyone here is most MS are using 3u rackets I'm sure and only Ginting is yielding a 4u 88D. Very very unique of him indeed.
