    I don't know if this has been mentioned on the board yet, but I saw in this months issue of Tennis magazine several pictures of Federer playing with the supposed N-Code Tour 90. The point where the handle and frame intersect look much like a PS 85 and not a tour 90 or ncode 90 because there was a lot of space in between the top of the handle and where the throat split off into 2 pieces. I'm pretty sure its a customized 85 w/ a 90 inch head size

    the words 'definitive' and 'pretty sure' are incongruous ;) maybe fed happens to like a non standard handle length? that would surely change the space. i wish these what are the pros really using threads would go away, but what the hey..i read this one....lol

    Oh god help us!!!

    Its not an ncode 90, its not a tour 90, and its not a 6.0 Original.

    Its a custom racquet built for Fed, end of story. It shares some characteristics with those 3 commercially available sticks, but it cannot be called any of them. Now can we please move on to more interesting topics?

    Didn't someone on this board said that he uses an ncode 90 but with only less dense string patterns or something like that?

    Federer uses a Wilson Prostaff Original 6.0 but with a 90 sq. in. head. It was mentioned and 100% positively correct a while back on another post about Federer's racquet. It was around the time when, whoever, posted something about how wilson completely customizes lots of their players racquets. Something about that.

    Yep. It was in a thread about the "Wilson Pro Room". Federer has a completely custom racquet based off of the PS85. His is similar but with a 90" head. There is nothing to debate.

    Negative. Federer plays with an Ergonom with a custom head.

    It looks way bigger than a 90 though

    This thread is from 2004, around the time Fed switched from the PS 85 to the Tour 90. His current stick (1/'14) is a 98 proto.

    How did you even find this and confuse it for a current thread?
