    Watching him playing against Ferrer now on RG, he uses retail APD?
    I thought he is Head Prestige guy forever (PT57E was his main racket for a long time as far as remember).
    When did he change?

    looks like a variant of the discontinued Aero Storm range in an APD pj. He was also using during the Davis Cup tie vs. England so I presume in the off season.

    Seems like many plays still like it and very few are using the Pure Strike range which replaces it.

    Facunda Bagnis is also using it.

    I've never even heard of an Aero Storm. Do they not make them anymore?

    Discontinued, replaced by the pure stryke line. Its a thinner beamed slightly heavier APD. Pretty nice racquet actually.

    Has anyone got any info on his previous HEAD stick? In particular grip size, balance, and whether or not he used leather base grip?
    Cheers

    It is not a proper aereo storm PJ, it has a different pattern, they did for him and some other minor players as Bagnis and Fratangelo.
