He had a big back stock of flexpoint paintjobs which he used for the last few years of his career well after the flexpoints weren't made anymore. I believe it was the pro stock radical or prestige which was made in the 90s and is still made for the pros - 98si, and I believe it was 27.5 in length. early in his career he used technifibre multi and later it was a gut/luxilon hybrid. I don't recall the tensions but more or less he used the gut at max recommended tension and the poly at mid tension, although he would vary that based on the weather and so on... Leather grip (4 1/2) and tourna overgrip as well... There's a thread somewhere on here of photos of his racquet as well as gasquet's from a stringer, a search would probably find it.
