I just watched Ferero playing Federer in Dubai from last month,
and Ferero is using some model of Head racquet and no longer uses the prince.
I checked on the tennis warehouse pro player gallery, and he is not officially endorsing head or price racquets at the moment.

Does anyone know exactly what model head racquet he is using?

Thanks

IS this racquet available to the public yet?
I don't see a link to it on the Head racqet page of TW.

If you have a link to this racquet please post it.

Thanks

In the specs it says its 100sqin if thats what hes using... I think hes really using it though because I remember seeing a pic and you can see the LM ridges but in Agassis racquet you dont see it...

Sounds like the Diablo MP. I wish they'd make one 27.5--28in--I might replace my POG LBs. I'll bet Ferrero's stick is a dead ringer for a POG LB.

No It isn't a dead ringer for the POG LB.
It is definitely the new HEAD model.

I think it would be a very interesting racquet to demo... 100sqin, I bet it gets pretty good pop and very forgiving, around 12oz which is nice, and it sounds like flex point might be the new trend already having good reviews.

Yeah--It's a Head, it's just the same headsize, length, stiffness, etc. as the POG LB. That's what I meant by dead ringer. It has the same specs, only I'll bet it also has that amazing groundbreaking new flexpoint technology that everyone's talking about and must have.

The racket Ferero is using sure looks wider than 21 MM, looks almost like an old Wilson Profile. More like 30 MM. Maybe ESPN will show highlights of Moya Ferero first round match.
Wait they are not American's so forget that.

that definitely better not be stiff...otherwise its just a puredrive!

I wonder whether a racket deal is enough to get a top player to part with somethign that's worked for them for a very long time. I hear a racket deal isn't that much money along other things anyway. Why would Ferrero want something totally new?

I watched the match theta's available via download, don't ask me where it's not permitted to say on this board. But I got a good view of Ferrero's racquet and you can see the flex point holes at the 3 and 9 oclock positions.
So it definitely is not a prince paint job.

I think he changed because he was not playing well with the old one, and maybe decided he really needed to try something new.

He almost beat federer in that match, he had 2 match points, and the new racquet was really working for him.

What overgrip is he using now? I saw a pic of him at the pacific life open and it may have just been the sun on the grip but it looked kind of pinkish.

Don't worry, it is called "flexpoint" and the whole idea behind it is to make it very flexible.
