I like my Viscaria, but I don't like the handle where it has a slight concave shape near the top and feels too skinny.  I am thinking about buying a Lin Gaoyuan blade.  I see the picture that the anatoic handle looks pretty nice and it does not have a big flare at the bottom that I like.  Does anyone has the anatomic handle?  How do you like it?  I am trying to decide whether to get the AN or FL handle.

I also saw the Ovtcharov Innerforce ALC Blade and that one seems like another good choice.

try to shape handle manually by yourself or some expert, very carefully

main thing which matters is the blade surface which will give you lot of success. 

dont compromise on it.

If the handle is already too skinny, how can you reshape?

carefully take the handles off and glue a layer of thin wood on each side of the handle where the handles were and then glue the handles back on...or have a blade master maker put new handles on which are thicker then the original

The LGY blade had a more squared FLARED handle than the Viscaria 

The viscaria is on top for a reason as the roundness kinda aides in ROLLING into the ball as you finish your stroke (idk how to explain it). Easier to transition between BH and FH too if you’ve mastered your angles.

LGY blade and other square handles aid in BH stability during blocking and countering. It does LOCK your stroke into place (in my level at least)—  (TB series straight handle, JM straight, and LGY FLARED) kinda makes sense considering they’re backhand oriented players and LGY supposedly uses a BH oriented grip most of the time. 

As I started to hold my racket more loosely, I started to like rounder Flared handles as I feel I could get more spin during openings.

LGY is even a skinnier flared btw
Franziska blade is also surprisingly thin (considering a European player)

Totally agree...that it is why I renounced at my LGY even though it is a fain blade...the shape of the handle...I could not switch fat enough from on side to another...
