Curious if anybody knows:

CORIA: Now, what's the deal with him still opting for the "Experimental" cosmetics? He's still got a Prince stencil, so why not just play with the same paintjob that Ferrero is using? Really looks dopey for Prince!

GAUDIO: Several male clay-courters play the WHPS 6.1, he's one of them unless it's also a paintjob. Anybody know how it's modified for pro use?

I am not sure if Gaudio uses a HPS 6.1 or the HPS 6.0 95sqi head.

I imagine he has made it alot heavier.

As for Coria I saw him today smash up his racket. Now if it is a POG Longbody then that man needs shooting.

What would the people on this boards give to posses one of those beasts?

But yeah I think Gaudio might use a 6.0.

I think Gaudio's frame is a Pro Staff Classic 6.1 or HPS 6.1 because of the cavity on the top part of the shaft right next to the throat. Obviously, none of the 6.0s had the cavity. http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/CFW/imageResults.aspx?s=ImagesSearchState|0|15|0|1|||0 |0|0|0|2|gaudio&p=2
Although the six o'clock position says "Midplus Stretch", it has sixteen mains.

Actually the racket in that picture has 18 mains. It also has four loops of string inside the throat, not three like on the 16-main 6.1. From the picture, it just looks like a normal Hyper Pro Staff 6.1 Stretch 95. The paint is just as glossy, too.

i agree w/ prestigeclassic, it looks like a hps 6.1 stretch, roundish beam w/ grooves in the throat. @ 6, it says "midplus stretch" and it has 18 mains.

It's either a hps 6.1 stretch, or hps 6.1 (european version).

This picture was taken in 2000, and that racquet is a 6.1 classic stretch. He is still using this racquet, strung with some Kirschbaum 16g string, pretty sure it is super smash, not 100% though. Most 6.1 paint jobs are of classic 6.1 stretches, it's rather quite interesting, would like to give that thing a hit one of these days...[/img]
