Anybody catch it? I saw a clip, looked like one of the dunlop max 200 (the gray one), or it could've just been a blacked out frame couldn't quite tell, anyone else see it?

I may be dead wrong but it sure looks like a 6.1 frame without PWS to me, also looks like it is a 16 main racquet....

Looks like the old Wilson 6.1 without the PWS is making a comeback. Same racket that Tim Henman used throughout his career - but painted as various Slazenger models. A friend of mine used to sell these rackets at $100 a pop. All black frame, no markings, no PWS but underneath it was a stock Wilson. They were used by various tour pros and painted to whatever contract or racket they were supposed to be playing.

I just asked Tommy R. about this very thing via a friend texting him. I'll let you know when I find out what he says.

I could be wrong, but it doesn't look right. It looks more like one of those rubber grommets from the hardware store.

looks like the old Luxilon grommets that used to be in each packet of string, and the string looks like Big Banger Original, which is as stiff as Weed Wacker wire
