Does anyone know when he will make this switch? Are we assuming that it will be a new paintjob of his current frame?

He'll be using the same racquet he always has just with a pj of the AG 4D 300 Tour which happens to also use the mold used by James...

I thought his mold was a 200, which is smaller. Not true?

even though TW continues with the charade, many of the top players have completely custom frames and pallets which do not resemble the latest gimmick frames in any way shape or form although they are made of graphite.

But this is not the case! The mold of the 300 Tour is the same mold used by Blake. I repeat MOLD... we all know that his frame is heavily customized.

I realize that most of the frames used by top players are customized. I thought that Blake has used a 95 sq" head and not a 98.

Does anyone know when he'll switch to the new pj?

If I remember correctly it's more like 97 sq. inches.

the previous version of the TF 335 was the exact same mold as blakes real frame. whatever the head size was on that frame - was it 97? i think it was.

The orignal specs on the 300 Tour were 97. TW now lists it as 98.

Yes. The same mold as the m-fil 200 16x19 - which is supposed to be the same mold as the 300 4D Tour and as such it should be 97 as well. All out of the same "Tour" mold that many of the Dunlop pros use.

Nope... such thing did not occur.

I'm assuming that we'll see the new paint job some time before the French Open.

The word from Blake's camp is that he will likely debut the 4D 300 Tour at the end of April in Rome.

Still using the AG200 paintjob. Good thing he didn't make the switch in Rome. No one would have noticed!
