    But, I know where you can get four of them painted blue fairly cheap:

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    Heard he's moving to Head Speed Pro's at AO. We'll see.

    Thought he was seen recently in an airport with a Head bag.

    There's no Head racquet like his current one so it would be a big shift. Tomic at 20 couldn't make the transition to Yonex.

    Pacific should pick him up. I think it would be a win/win. He's price tag has probably come down significantly and he gets to keep playing his favored Pro One Mold. Could also be a win for those of us who want Pacific to release that mold with a 16 main pattern.

    Pacific does with the X force Lite. It's just ridiculously light for the average person to customize.

    This is actually a very easy racquet to customize. I regard this frame as the most ideal platform racquet on the market due to its headsize (98 sq. in) and Flex/RA (55). I've added 25 grams to the handle (lead strips) and have it weighing in at 307 grams and 4 points headlight, strung and gripped. Sure, it lacks heft, but with its extreme flexibility, you can swing out like you wouldn't believe. It's a beast!!

    I think he's still using the old Fischer Vacuum Pro/Pro no 1/VT Pro 98 (the old version, not the red/green version, that was also a paintjob). You can see the bottom of the throat which has remained the same over the years/paintjobs:

    Not sure of any talk about surrounding this or the other new Pacific B2X frames coming out soon. The specs for the pictured XForce Pro are identical to past lines - 11.3oz, 98 sq. in, 60 Flex/RA, 8pts HL, and 16x20. They're dope!!
