This has been known for like three months. Its his usual racket with the paintjob of the Wilson BLX Tour 90 which is already on sale here at Tennis Warehouse.

You know very well that there has to be a repost of every known thing because people fail to search. :-?

I was never a huge Sampras fan, but I admired him for refusing to wield a paint job, even if his motivation was more OCD'ish than to take a stance against quasi-false advertising.

Any of you guys with info regarding the stick and its perfomrance? I'm really thinking about playing with them, but am afraid this one might be really bad for my arm and shoulder problems. I've been forced to play with very flexible racquets for the past couple of years, but am considering a switch back to stiffer frames.

Just use natural gut or soft multi, keep the tension low, and the stiffness of the frame will not mean much. BLX dampens plenty of vibrations, so I would say it should be relatively safe, assuming you can handle the weight and your technique is not injury-prone.

So demo it first, be careful, don't overuse your arm, and listen to your body.

Thanks a lot for the tips. My technique is indeed injury-prone, but I'll give it a try with soft multi strings. Maybe even good old nylon strings, since I do break A LOT of strings. Anyone crazy enough to have already tried Nylon on the BLX 6.1 Tour?

I thought they said he'd only play with the St.Vincent Pro Staff which has a thicker beam width due to it being an older mold lol
