    Definately a Fox racket, and he used to build his grip up way big with that horrible towling type grip!

    Sorry guys, you're right: "Fox", not "Fin" - but it was closed;)

    The racquets that had the angles were actually part of the Bosworth series in the Fox line of racquets. In fact, I was just using my Fox Ceramic Pro 210 last night.

    Ugly? Or ugly like a Fox? Ehh, that does not quite work in this case.

    whether gilbert is using this frame now i dont know but what i was referring to the racket that he used definitely is not this

    i remember fin, those were the days when many small brands still managed to flourish, such as stellar, yamaha, emrik, today i no longer see them

    I saw him last week with Andy Murray in Washington and he was hitting with a 6.1 code 95

    ...Oh you mean when he was a pro, err I don't know about that one...

    I have one of his Fox WB-210 frames with his terry cloth grip and nylon string still installed. He gave it to me back in the mid-90's. Will sell for the right price. Email racketcollector@gmail.com if interested!
