Since there is a thread going on right now about szlc and zlc, I thought why not open up a thread about koto and Limba top plies. Just to gather a list of top players using either one. Love the forum update btw.

I'll start the list.

Koto:
Zhang jike (viscaria)
Lin Gaoliang (viscaria)
Timo Boll (Boll ALC)
Fan Zhendong (viscaria)

Limba:
Ma Long (Long 5)
Harimoto (Innerforce ALC)
Mizutani (Mizutani ZLC/Long 5?)
Apolonia (Innerforce ZLC)
Koki (Koki Niwa)
Freitas (Freitas ALC)
Matsudaira (Matsudaira ALC)

Kenta Matsudaira. BTW the Matsudaira blade is the only BTY blade with a combination of limba, ALC and kiri core.

Not quite, just most. Fang Bo uses Limba and I am sure there are others, especially the penholders.

Yes, Viscaria. Koto outer ply. Nearly the entire chinese mens team uses that. So I think that's a very resounding win for koto there among the very very best.

Also a huge percentage of euro pros use viscaria or timo ball alc, which is a slightly modified viscaria. Koto outer ply of course.
