    What pros have or had the coolest looking racquets? What I mean by this is not the frame itself, but the grips, damps, strings, stencils, etc.

    It seems that each pro has their own thing, so lets see what you guys think

    Post pics too

    Tipsarevic with his Redcode and TFight (the old paintjob, not the new vo2 one).

    You saved me a job in searching for a pic of this racket. I take it your comment of 95 square inches is ironic :wink: as it's a PJ of Fed's custom tour 90/K90

    You can clearly see in this pic that the racquet is not the one Fed is playing with now. How? The throat area looks like a PS85/KPS88. So this means he switched to his current racquet when he got the Tour 90 PJ.

    But this racquet still gets my vote for the coolest racquet along with Pete's.

    My question is...what racquet is Ivo actually using? Babolat wouldn't have blacked it out if it were a current model.

    Ivo use APDC, it's black because it's exclusive for Rafa.

    No, he used the APDC but then went back to his head instinct, and thus had to use the black paint.

    If no one could use the APDC since it's Nadal's, Caroline Wozniaki and other pros would use a blacked out racquet.Plus you can see that the blacked out ivo racquet doesn't have the aero beam, it's clearly a head.

    I had a feeling they were blacking it out because he went back. At first I thought it might have been from the Storm line but things just didn't match up.

    I wonder if Babolat will make him his own version of one of their frames or just put a PJ on the one he's using.
