Nampaknya kebelakangan ini isu tentang ukuran sebenar meja gusti lengan muncul kembali. Memang tidak dinafikan bahawa terhadap perbezaan ketara saiz yang diguna pakai di Malaysia, berbeza diantara satu negeri ke negeri yang lain. Isu sebegini s ebenarnya membebri masalah kepada pemain-pemain. Ada sesetengah pemain enggan bermain di negeri-negeri tertentu dengan alasan saiz meja yang diguna tidak sama dengan saiz yang buiasa digunakannya.
Untuk tidak memanjangkan lagi isu ini, pihak PSLNS menyeru semua pihak yang terlibat merujuk kembali kepada ukuran sebenar yang telah ditetapkan oleh World Armsport Federation (WAF).
