    claims without proof (pics) are useless in this thread. Until proof is shown if you claim to have a pros frame- your making stuff up.

    My Pro's Rackets..

    A total of 14 Wilson Pro Staff Classic 6.1´s (I know there are only 13 but one's at the stringer) of which 4 with a string pattern of 18x20, the rest has 16x19.
    Also, 7 of them are 6.1 si and the others are the normal 6.1's. All have headsize 95 sq. inch and are head-light.
    Beam on all the rackets is 20,5. Because they were my dad's, who was a pro, (don't believe me? please tell me, instead of starting a discussion right away) they are custom made, in this case this means that they are more head-light and the PWS is leaded up to a weight of in total 370 grammes per racket.

    The other two rackets are 2 Dunlop Roland Garros French Open of a few years ago, strongly modified. Both weigh 320 grammes strung instead of 305 and balance is more head-light. Beam is 21. Headsize of 98 sq. inch. these two are just regular rackets, not pro's.

    We've also got numerous Adidas and Kuebler rackets that my dad used, but they're stored in my uncle's garage.

    I have one James Blake's Prince/Dunlop blacked out custom molds. And I'm not sure who used them but a ProStaff 6.1 classic (18/20) with the NCODE NPRO PaintJob plus a Pro Staff original 6.0 95 with the NCODE 90 paint.

    Amazing

    just wondering how people are able to get the pros rackets? i understand if they get it from being in the crowd and it gets thrown there, but it seems very difficult to just go ask someone to buy a racket the pros are using or even ask them for it because it would blow the top of the paintjob scams...some of these rackets are awesome !!!

    1993-1994 Andre Agassi Head Radical Tour 260 20x21. Weighs 365 grams, has a boxy Wilson-like grip shape (at least feels more boxy than the regular Head grip and not round like Prince) with grip size of 4 3/8:

    Art, I won't be home for another month... but I have put them on my extreme machines diagnostic center before. From my memory: I have it strung with MSV focus hex 18l, 27.5in, 354g, 31.1 bal, 347sw. Feels a bit stiffer and less solid than my RDS002 tour that I have, but totally crushes the ball!

    I've got one of Petr Korda's racquets. It is a pj of a C10 Comp he use to use. It is actually a TR 25 someone told me ( I think that was the model) that is under the pj. It is bright red under the pj as I can see from a few scrapes on the frame. I think Equijet on TT here has one that isn't a pj or a pre C10 Comp era that I have.

    The mold is from the TR25 but the racket is custom as is the lay up.
    Equijet his racket is a pj also, Korda played various pj's...
    Even when he used the pj of the Volkl Tour 10 MID it was still his old TR25 mold underneath.

    Thank You, klem79.

    If I remember correctly, the PC600's were 348g unstrung (no overgrip), balanced at 315.

    I've changed pallets och stripped them of a couple of grams, kept the balance as before. I play them 3-4 times a week, absolute beauties.

    Best one I have is a Fed stock custom racquet paintjob to be ncode but it's pretty much what sampras was using during the exo tournies in asia vs fed. And it's also whatever fed uses. Besides that some 57e's.
