i heard it's customized from the TW mold with added weight at 3&9 but it's not lead tape, it's a secret ingredient. anyone clued into what he uses?

I heard it was spent uranium. He's also looking into buying Federer's cow to use it's intestines to make some special natural gut strings.

I have heard that it is right off the shelf. He did not find any need to change a thing. It has been painted like the Head LM Radical OS, but if you see a picture you can tell it is really the HG.

Sorry, how do you know about this?
Also, it's an LM with lead or what? LM is 11 ounces off the shelves.

You'll have to fish around for it, lots of info there.

Oh, now I remember the information at that site, you're right, it's there:

----------
Pete Sampras uses a racquet that is 14 oz. and evenly balanced, and when he is going for a putaway, he chokes down so the swingweight is even higher. Andre Agassi uses one that is 13.2 ounces and 5/8 inch (5 points) head-light. Mark Philippoussis uses one that is 13.5 ounces and is 3/4 inch head light.
---------

However, that is basically dated 2002, not sure what he's using more recently, perhaps he's switched to a real LM, even I would assume he would be in the same weight range.

I heard it is a 60.00 dollar racket ; nothing outlandish. Just very basic kind of like the original black & yellow he went to in the early 90's with Head.

ladies and gentlemen, i have to step in here. this post was in response to a TW April Fool's prank review about a racket made from plastic, fiberglass from a bassboat, and strung with fishing net (if memory serves).

the review was very funny, as it it paid homage to a lot of the cliches and platitudes used by people who take tennis rackets WAAAAY too seriously (myself included).

I know he used 104, but I read that recently he went back to 107.
