I thought I would share some pics of one odd racquet that a girl here in sweden played with when she was on the tour during the 80's and a weird babolat that looks like a head racquet in disguise :shock: Comment if you want!

Hehe its not a proshop its the shop in Stockholm where I work. The babolat fram is from the 90's so its not Karlovic's... It could however be Thomas Enquist's as he grew up in our Club.

And yes thats Babolat tennisballs, they are really good.

I think the head is too round to be a Head Instinct. It looks to me like a PK Black Ace. Without seeing them side by side, it's hard to tell, but the Black Ace had the round frame, "hefty" look, same shape.

Yeah It doest really look like a headracquet. The reason I thought It was is the head calfskin leather grip.

the stripes on the sides seem higher than usual too.
