    I know he uses a TGK 260.2 but is there any evidence that suggests it is an XL version?

    Some posters here actually have his sticks. They are 27.75 inches if I remember correctly.

    The link doesn't work. I understand there exist both tgk 260.2 standard length and tgk 260.2 XL. I see movdqa doesn't mention having the XL version in his signature. I would also like to know why movdqa is persuaded that Berdych is using the XL version.

    I actually can't find a post where they say it's 27.75. It would be nice to have movdqa himself dispel my doubts.

    I wish I could find the email from the seller of Berdych's Dunlops. It had the specs listed. :(

    - Balance Point = 31cm
    - RA = 57 (vs. 64 for the retail version)
    - Grip size : 4 3/8

    I have a pair of Thomas Berdychs Dunlops. I amnot sure you are talking about these though as the thread is about his Head Pjs. These Dunlops are nicely flexy yet rocksolid.

    Hi chrischris, what I wanted to know is whether your dunlops are of standard length (27 inches) or extended (27.75)

    Hmmm ok so as of now it seems most likely that he uses a standard length racquet.

    Yes thank you! :)

    So it seems it was 27. The TGK260.2 I have was said to be cut down from 27.75 which is what I assumed he used. My mistake! :)
