It was informative, but seeing as it was so obviously scripted, I think they could have added some suspense using close-to-threshold readings, pointed questions about boosting, and maybe some footage of the ITTF enforcement arm in their riot gear. :P

But that would be infringing on player's privacy, bringing table tennis (well at least the ITTF) into bad repute, and against the handbook of match officials, or so a friend of mine was told.

They could have used a fictitious player instead!

I thought some of the most interesting parts were that Simon Gauzy uses Rakza 7, and apparently it’s not that thick.

Also, that his blade is a Sanwei M8.

OK, I made that last bit up. Because the ITTF wouldn’t. :D

They claim to be able to test for boosting - and I have said this before - they can only catch bad boosting, ie boosting with a material containing VOCs or boosting badly applied so that the rubber is no longer flat, or boosting with rubber that ends up too thick.

So they put a gloss on that, then measure the gloss :)

They also still do not have a test for the minimum friction of pimples out.
