What do they really use ?

Wilson Six.One 95 BLX is what they say anyway,along with some of the other doubles pro's.

AFAIK, they're rqts are real deal as I've never seen evidence to suggest they'd pj'd older rqts; but then again.

For reference, Lindstedt uses BLX 6.1 16 x 18 ALU Power/Wilson gut 17 (10% pre-stretch) tensions usually between 24 - 26kgs; Tecau use BLX 6.1 18 x 20 ALU Power/Wilson gut 16 tension usually about 21 or 22kg.

This bit of art was made by Lindstedt after the Wimby dubs final this year. I took this picture personally, and it does pain me a bit having put a lot of effort stringing them for the final!

Hehe,i wonder what Wilson thinks about pros messing up their racquets after a loss :D

Anyway,might be worth a tryout if they are actually using them,along with some other top pro's.
I guess they shine at serve and volleys in particular since so many doubles players use them.

But it could be rackets from Wilson pro room, H 22 or something....Lindstedt mentioned a year ago or so that he playtested some rackets with a bit lower weight than before as he think that would help his elbow problems....

Yes, they could be. I haven't checked any codes that are printed on the inside of the frames when I've strung them.

Just compared the 16*20 and the 18*20, it differs abit in SW between them, the 16*20 is 324 while the other is 333 SW,but then again i guess he rather would get a special edition 18*20 than switching patterns.

But my thought was he was maybe using the heavier 18*20 earlier and playtested the 16*20.

If you're talking about Lindstedt, then he uses 16x18 pattern, certainly has the last 4 years. There is no 16x20 BLX 6.1 pattern.

wow.
Did he all crack them immediately after the final? :shock:
Or during the final - or during the whole championships ?
