I'm going with Data pair. I don't think anybody on this list can touch them.
And I don't know what makes you think Yanagi has Fuji's technique.
Fuji has Closed Eyes. His technique and abilities lift. Unless you meant Base Stats which I agree with.
Inui in terms of Power shouldn't be able to compete with the current Kawamura however.
Although 5 at once isn't much, considering Ryoma was given 10 at once, and Sanada has BA on top of it,
I reckon some kind of damage could be done.
Definetely no shut-out here. Although Inui and Yanagi could win this.
I think I might change my vote for Data Pair now.
Akutsu will most likely be having his match with Genius 10. We don't know the result of this match yet, but I'm guessing he's stronger than both Renji, who lost to number 17.
Kawamura seems to be the weaker one here, but I don't know if the data pair have enough tech to negate a shot than break the spotlight. Kawamura isn't to be underestimate, for sure.
Akutsu is better than Inui and Yanagi.
But Inui and Yanagi are much better than Kawamura.
That's my issue too. He broke a spot light. Like he sent it crashing. That's insane.
Don't think it would be an easy win.
The context of my post shows that I am in fact referring to base stats, because I went on to say Inui has "power" as well.Originally Posted by Airgrimes
In terms of power, I agree. However, my point was not Inui's power going head to head with Kawamura's power. My point was, Inui has enough technique to counter it, and on top of that, he has power to stack with it (Inui as a character is implied to have decent power/physical strength, but we have not seen any literary leads to point the same for Renji). That means overall, Inui will not have much of an issue with "returning" shots from either of them.Originally Posted by Airgrimes
I'm definitely not saying it would be. What I am saying is, you people need to wake up to how absurd this pair really is. They have never lost. They, on that mountain, did what Echizen, Sanada, Kintarou, and every other MSer could not, and that is pretty freaking ridiculous. Until I see otherwise, I find no reason to believe they shouldn't be top seed in doubles.Originally Posted by Airgrimes

all i know if data pair achieves synchro it could be lights out for most doubles pairs
I agree that 5 at once isn't enough to suggest Top tier level at all. Since it's pretty bland next to the Top guys.
But I reckon 10 at once means something. Otherwise Mifune wouldn't have basically ignored 5 at once and mentioned 10 at once.
I think the whole x at once thing was only added to give us an idea of the overall level of the guys that didn't actually have matches, nothing more. I doubt we'll ever see an actual application of it.
For example, Sanada. We know he can hit 5 balls at the same time, but he would destroy most players of the G10. It doesn't matter, in the case of Shuuji, he is a player who can hit 10 balls for sure, so what? He can lose to players like Yukimura or Sanada, rank doesn't matter, the overall strength is what matters.
I believe Tezuka, would beat Oni, Irie, Kazuya, Duke... it's not assumption, he is ithe top of the MS, his base stats are strong plus he has Hyakuren, Saiki and POP. So there are people who say, Oh, POP it's nothing to the top of the first string, they'll be able to deal with it even if is Tezuka who's using it, wrong. It just depends on the player that's using it. Tezuka was really strong before activating it, with it, he can be the No.1 of the first string perfectly. Just the fact that he can't hit 10 balls doesn't prevent him from being the best, because after all, the number of balls you hit it doesn't matter, is the overall strength. Also, probably Konomi made him go to Germany because if he stayed in Japan, he probably would have become the No.1 in no time, really quick, so it was pointless that happened without giving other players any chances to do that and show their improvements.
Konomi just wants to say to us, "hey, these dudes can hit 10 balls, so watch out because they're really strong", but a player like Tezuka with POP who hitting 10 balls at the same time isn't a matter for him, it doesn't make a difference.
