Marcus Fernaldi Gideon provides all the muscle power in the dynamic “minion-duo” of him and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. While his partner Kevin plays a more entertaining style of play, Gideon is equally good at doing his part of the job. His jump smashes are very consistent and rarely miss the target or hit the net. His reliability allows his partner Kevin to play freely as he does.

YONEX ASTROX 88D
