What's with Henman? I thought he was using the new X-1. I watched his match today and he was still using the ProBraided Henman with the gold and silver trim. What gives?

He is using the ProBraid... what makes you think he is using anything different?

Funny really, he uses a custom frame painted like the probraided, but when the X-1 comes out he doesn't change the paintjob!

He uses old barricades aswell!

I think it may be related to the recent buyout of Dunlop/Slaz by Sport Soccer. Their websites are down at the moment and I believe their forthcoming squash lines are on hold. The X-1 always has the new 'S' logo when you see it on websites but Henman is also still using the old 'panther' logo. Maybe there are contract issues because of the new ownership. Seems like painting his custom frame wouldn't be a problem and I'm sure Slaz would be up in arms if their only "name" player wasn't "using" :wink: the latest design.

Henman rackets are all customised by Warren Bosworth.
