I watched him practicing today and he was using his LM Prestige PJ. I saw the inside of his bag, he had like 6 LMs and 3 FP's. His racquets bumper guards look like the I Prestige ones though the ones that curve at the end.

How are you able to tell from that pic? What are the telltale signs (other than the LM ridges looking like they're painted on, that is)?

could also be a PT280. seems a lot of pros still play with this frame under the current PJ.

cant be a 280 it has cap grommets. Maybe the 630, but I don't think so. I can't find a good pic on the bumper guard but it looks like the i prestige one.

It has the i. prestige bumper guard and afaik this doesn't fit to the PT 280. If the bumper guards would be compatible Head woulod have give him the normal one from the LM prestige.

The main aesthetic difference between frames from a Pro Tour or Radical mold and frames from an i.prestige Midplus mold are the different "grooves" at the ends of the throat bridge. I'm pretty sure in the picture I referenced that this can be noticed. On the i.prestige Midplus, the grooves are longer and more blended in to the frame.

It looks similar, but not necessarily guaranteed

Yes, it looks like an I.Prestige but are we sure that it's midplus?

Guys,
I yield to your knowledge of the pt 630 on this one, but it seems to me that DT's frames look larger than 98 si's and just different (size) from the painted LM 630's that I once had.
Are his frames 27.5 possibly? Are we for sure that they aren't some sort of custom frame?
Very Interested
