Or am I the only one seeing this?
Andy, that frame of Sun, is that a breath? If so it's not a fair comparison. I also don't think we can assume Sun's 'intentions' that the angle of the elbow is a trade off for DPS. I can't see a biomechanical reason why that particular angle would create a longer vs. shorter DPS.

But nevertheless its an interesting discussion.
