    It's probably for the Speed line, because it matches the font and leather grip of the racket.

    Djokovic should use the smiley damp when he's winning and the frowny damp when he's losing

    yeah a customoized one you can't buy. falcon on 1 side and head logo on the other. if it was head logo on both sides i would prefer it to the one that's coming with the speed line, black and little orange logo in a head shape.

    sorry i mean in the terms that it's a personal exclusively made one how he wanted it to look and he probably choose the colour, and it's one that you can't just go and buy in the shop.

    Finally, here we go. falcon looks bad IMO, should have head logo on both sides.

    With lead tape, normally. I prefer the polarised setup with 0.2g at both ends.
