Looking at the match tonight his racquet looks wider than the flxp. radical. anyone else notice this? or is it just me?

that could mean hes using a racquet other the the FXP Radical. this is a subject that has never been touched on before.

If the caption is right then that picture is before the racket switch.

Just look at the AA picture thread at the ' kids day celeb... the beam is thick, just like the one he started his match ( last night ) with.

The frame in that pic looks quite odd for Agassi, and only 19 crosses.

nothing more than a paint job of a flexpoint...there is a zero percent chance that agassi is using a flexpoint

he has always used 18*19....and you can totally see the flexpoint paint job in some of the other pics in that link....

Hi, below is a link to a great shot of the thicker racquet. Although Agassi did say to John McEnroe that he changed his racquet for tension reasons it is obvious this would violate his Head racquet contract since he is publicly using only "one" racquet. (AKA: Head Flexpoint Radical) I totally believe that he gestured to Darren Cahill that he needed his older "backup" paintjobs. Besides, the throat of the racquet he used at the end of the match is totally different than the ones of the beginning of the match. It looks like Head made him some new custom racquets with a thickness somewhere between the LM Instinct and his present custom racquet. Probably to get more power. Just a thought......=)

Well, Agassi has not always used 18x19, but point taken..
