Yup. They mixed it up quiet badly this time. In the comments it is said that they mixed up the fh and  bh side several times (they fixed some of the mistakes, but still some obvious ones remained including the blade of Sun Wen). As you said, the Hurricane Hao blades have a grey-deyed top ply and also the handle caps are dark blue (similiar in colour to the Boll Spirit) and not baby blue as with the Hurricane Long 3 or 5. That being said, Sun Wen probably plays a W968.

Is gauzy still using Gatein Absolum off+ with andro handle? Anyone have any idea how this blade performs?

Absolum with Andro Treiber handle and Rasanter R50 on both sides.

WR #31 is using Rasanter! Was this confirmed visually? Maybe he is changing sponsors.
**Edit. A quick google check reveals: "Simon Gauzy Welcome to the andro Pro Team!"

Samsonov likes to try new blades and different materials a lot. Usually pros dont change that much i guess.

Yeah, people obsessed with topics on blades composition should watch and take notes LOL
He simply goes by the "feel" and he's not afraid to change

The French coach spoke about that match and he commented on Boll's rubbers as follows (see from 0:21 to 0:28): "C'est vrai que maintenant il a une plaque chinoise en coup-droit et même en revers, je crois, maintenant ... et il met beaucoup plus d'effet au service - c'est compliqué d'aller flipper pour Simon." Basically he said that Boll had chinese rubbers both sides.

Yea up close its pretty easy to see thats not the ice cream blade, just the handle LOL

Maybe because that's not Ice Cream, but upcoming Xiom Calderano SAL (Super Arylate Carbon).

assuming it is not photoshopped, is the coach saying: "We did get away with this!"

It would be so easy to erase the viscaria name why would you change the handle and keeping the original name to make it look like other brand?

laziness? who knows... afterall, the blade was not supposed to make its appearance without the rubber in the playing hall.

i'm still not convinced it was not photoshopped.
