Does he use an aerogel 300. If so does anyone have specs on his racquet? Seems like all the Tommies use Dunlop Aerogels.

Think for once...you really think a pro would use a real aerogel 300?

I dont know what his racket is but its no aerogel.

LMFAO. You don't need to send it to RPNY to get it extended, though that is one option.

The stringer above is Nickb, otherwise, I dunno who you're talking about.

And why do you think Tommy is limited to the Aerogel 300?

I have just looked at some pictures of his racket.

It looks like he is using something like a Dunlop Revelation Tour Pro 95.

I have been told its a custom frame (length, balance, weight).

Im pretty sure its from the tour pro mould.

It is a perfect Aerogel. the dimentions in the pics fit the stock Aerogel perfectly, except the length.:shock:

revelation tour 95 looks nothing like Aerogel. the aerogel 300 has a very unique shape and dimentions. tommy's recent pics prove that. Yes the weight and specs are custom made for Tommy by Dunlop. but the material is AEROGEL, dunlop REP told me.

How did they change the length ?? by redoing the Molding of the handle ??

When Prince's OEM manufactures the racquet they cut to the appropriate length when it comes out if the mold. When racquets come out if the mold they are longer than 27 inches.

Tommy Robredo does not use the Aerogel 300. Is this the same rep that told you Nadal uses Cortex? Robredo uses the Revelation Tour Pro 95.

Look at Tommy's racquet here.

Now look at the real Aerogel 300.

The two racquet are from two different molds.

That's what I thought too, until I saw he was using a 16x18 (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=238995), not 16x19 like the Tour Pro had.

Post count doesn't mean anything at all. Some of the most intelligent posters on here have less than 50 posts, and, as you proved, the opposite is also true.

Yes I know. Robredo switched racquets at the beginning of 2009.
http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=238995&page=2
I think Robredo switched from the old Revelation he was using to the Dunlop Pro only Mold that is a copy of the Wilson Pro Staff Classic 6.1 with out the PWS. Also the string pattern has changed from 16x19 to now 16x18.
Tommy with the old Revelation. Notice how there is no groove in the throat bridge.

How does any pro use something so light? I don't even see any lead on it, you would have to add about an oz of lead just to make it decent

Its a custom mold, not the acutal 4D 300 Tour.

JURA would know if it is not aerogel,,,right ?? he strung it and touched it
I didn't strung it, just touched it. And the mold was surely not any Aerogel racket. To me it looked like one of the older Revelation Tour rackets from the 90es.
And regarding the length: It's just a matter where you cut the rackets when they come out of the mold. If Tommy says he wants 69,8 cm he gets it. If he wants 70,3 cm he will get it as well (if the mold is long enough). You don't need any RPNY for this.

1. You can hide the lead under the bumper.
2. The pro rackets are usually produced seperately. So you can adjust the weight at the production. (Not precisely on one or two gramms but you can make a racket which has 300 gr. in the retail version with 320 oder 330. That's no problem.)
3. You don't have to use lead tape. I tuned my rackets with silicon and you donÄt see nothing. Even my Prestiges have 20 gr. added in the head.

Its a custom/older mold. If you look at the throat, its got a taped beam, whereas the actual 4D 300 does not.
