By the flat beam and shape of the beam my best guess is a Dunlop. Either 200g or 300g or any of the 200s or 300s.

Well before he was using a Pure Storm. Then he was using a blacked out frame. It might be a custom mold?

That looks of a 300 mold?

That was my first opinion because of its more oval headshape. And the flat beam but now that i look at it again, it may be the thinner 200 mold or more likely a Topspin Cl633 racquet.

That's just a KBlade Tour as far as I can tell. Are you saying you think it's a paintjob of some kind?

The bottom cross of the stock Kbade tour doesn't have that much space since it is a 93 sq in. So his racquet must be a bigger head size to have that much space. And on the Kblade the throat is round. His is flat. like the shape of head racquets, the older Tecnifibres, and the Topsping Cl633. As far as i can tell in this picture the head frame portion is not round like the stock Kblade's are. I can't tell about the glossy paint either

To me it looks like the custom mold Djokovic used.

he's been using a PC forever (saw his racquet being strung by coworkers at the Rogers Cup in 05). looks like a paintjob of that.

It looks like to me the Wilson racquet that is a copy of the HEAD racquet that so many Wilson players use like Tursunov, Mathieu, and etc...

I agree with you. It's not real KBT to me because the real one's shaft is not flat-box beam like this.

If it's real 200S', I think it's 200G hotmelt due to it's thick bridge.

You can find the thin bridge in revelation 200G, MW200G, AG200&AG2004D.

wow, that is a real Kobra Tour, pretty bold change to make, but not surprised he switched back

That IS a real Kobra Tour, or at least a 100 square inch PJ with 16 mains.

By the flat beam and shape of the beam my best guess is a Dunlop. Either 200g or 300g or any of the 200s or 300s.

Let's think about this for at least 3 seconds; why would Wilson go out of their way to either make or re-paint Dunlops (whether through a contract or buy purchasing their molds) for, of all people, Florent Serra? They wouldn't. It's probably just an H22. This board comes up with some incredibly dense theories...

And why would they even give him a H22. And why can't it be that he actually likes the REAL KBlade Tour... After all he is clearly playing with the real Kobra or something very similar... Also Oudin uses the real KBlade Tour. And for the pictures of his "box beam" KBlade I want some better pictures, because I think it looks like the real deal.

Because for Wilson that would be just as easy as giving him a real KBT. It's probably one or the other, but the idea that it's a Dunlop is completely daft.
