Today when I was on the atp site, I saw a picture of Paul Haarhuis. The sencil on his racquet is certainly different from the usual:confused. What racquet brand is he using?:confused:

Tyger Excel Drive I believe it's called, It's got the same/or similar mold to the T-fight's and as such James Blakes custom dunlop

Maybe it is a good idea to publish some swingweights of the Tyger rackets and other rackets also. I don't see anything about this on the ************ site. Swingweight is an important factor and for me a must if i want to demo or buy a racket.

Well, hopefully it doesn't play anything like the old Black Ace Heritage Edition he used to use, because that was one horribly dead, muted, wobbly, and just plain awkardly balanced/feeling racket...that looked GREAT! What a beautiful racket cosmetic and frame that was, such a shame the racket itself played as one coach put it, "It's just WEIRD..." and not in a good way.

It would be helpful if someone posted a picture, because some people don't know who he is.

Sampras, Becker, Ivanisevic and Mcenroe will know him and you can always use google to find some pictures. Should not be too much trouble right?

The C10 on the site is 95, 16x18, head shape looks more rounded. Not sure, but it might be the C20 to which you might be referring.

My mistake!

His racket is from the same mold as the Tyger Exel Drive C20

and the paintjob is that of the Tyger Exel Drive C10

The cosmetic in that Haarhuis pic has colors inverted from the C10 pic on the site ??

About the C20, the older cosmetic looked a bit better, when it was called just the Exel Drive 630 and was half matte black. Anyway, how would one go about bringing a new C20 into the US?

It's not the original paintjob of the Tyger C10 that Haarhuis has, it looks like it but not the same, nor he uses the C20, maybe the same mold but not the same lay up, his is much heavier.

Here the specs of the C 20:

Headsize: 97 sq inch/ 626 sq.
length: 68.5 cm
Composition: Graphite
Beam: 20 mm
String pattern: 18 x 20
Weight (unstrung): 295 gr
Balance: 32.5 cm
