its a paintjob i think because its was an 18 by 20 pattern, and the 400g is a 16-19 any thoughts on why dunlop would give tommy a painjob of a 400g .

enlarge any of the pics and it clearly shows that it's the old muscle weave 200g.

you can see the "musce weave" logo on the first pic.

i agree, it's the muscle weave 200g (the model before the hotmelt 200g)

It's a 200g paintjob, but a different frame. It doesn't have the slimmer bridge or lower hoop that the mw 200's had.

Also looks as if Novak put down his Tour 10 to use the C10. At crunchtime, the familiar always seems to feel best.

Wouldn't it be foolish of Dunlop and Haas to paint a frame with the colors of a discontinued racquet?

I saw it up pretty close at Indian Wells. At that time, he was using the MW 200g.

precisely.

Also, i was standing 3 feet away from Haas when he was practicing at the Nasdaq 100 with Fernando Gonzalez. I saw his racquet close up, and it definitely looked like the same Dunlop 200g muscle weave that's currently in my bag.

If you search my name, i've already posted a few pics of him too.

If you look at the picture closely, it is very clear that the area where the throat meets the hoop is not similar to the old (pre hotmelt) mw's (sitting with one in my hand). It has been discussed here before, there was talk about a "tour-mold" racket used by several Dunlop professionals.

Its definatly a Muscle Weave 200g (talk about bad endorsment from Dunlop). From afar it does look like a 400g, with the grey color scheme.
