Allow me to help you...
Damn! You beat me to it...
Looks like some sort of Pro Stock Pro Staff 95, I just wonder why they didn't just put the new paint job on it like Dmitrov's racquet.
Looks like the new Pro staff?
That's one big pro staff...
the throat area is still the same as the prostaff 6.0
You can actually see the PWS bumps if you look carefully.
And the throat does look like a box beam.
But yes, it seems quite large, it must be the 95 or the 100.
The PWS are easy to make out, that thing is thick and that's what threw me off.
Yes, exactly, at first sight the hoop did not even look like a box beam to me.
Then I looked more closely at the PWS and the throat area...

maybe a new racket for him. I notice the tip of the racket is flat beamed. while the throat is a box beamed.
Just count the mains and crosses. I just did, and you'll have a surprise... Sounds like the new 6.1 95S that is already referenced on some European tennis websites. Most likely modded to be close to the frame he used to use. For the record, his previous frame used the 6.0 Original 95 mould and drill pattern.
Wilson Ultra FPK!!!!!!!!
could have achieved so much more. Seems to go missing in matches
It's a 16x18 string pattern.... so same as the old Pro Staff 6.0 95 he was using. It also has the same box beam shape as the old Pro Staff 6.0 95. I'm not sure why it's blacked out and not using the current ProStaff BLX paint job though.
i used to play with it and i love it!
I counted 18x16, so yeah it is a new frame.
^^^spin effect technology on tour?
It's the all new 2014 Prostaff pro tour 98 - a racquet 15 years in the making.
count again...and this time the correct way MxC (hint 18x16)
right you are - got it backwards. I take my comment back re: string pattern. It does still look like the boxbeam of the PS 6.0 95 though so maybe be some kind of custom / prototype stick?
Well if you go on Tennis Point you'll see they're referencing the New Six.One 95S. However, given that the throat is different, I guess (like I wrote earlier in this thread) it's based on his previous racquet that used the 6.0 95 original mould, but with a different drilling pattern. You know, "Spin Effect Technology". I'm not actually surprised that of all people Dolgopolov would try it since he seems to love slices.
Sorry for the derailment but does anyone know which S.E.T. pattern is on the new PS 6.1 100?
The PS 6.1 95S has 16x15, the 6.1 95S has 18x16.
P.S.: I'd say Dolgo has his normal racquet with a custom 18x16 drill.
Dog is surely upsetting the brass among Adidas Tennis by being one their top Adizero guys, yet rocking Barricades.
So anyone figured out what this racket is?
It looks like his old Wilson ProStaff 6.0 95 mould with a Spin Effect string pattern.
It's a good bet that it is the new 'Pro Staff 95S' (given that there is a Six.One 95S with the identical string pattern).
^Nay, 6.1 ProStaff have a different mould. You can see the throat is different between 6.0 Original and 6.1 ProStaff frames. Plus the next ProStaff 95S has a 16*15 pattern unlike the 18*16 Dolgopolov is using. So as I said, since Dolgopolov has been using the 6.0 95 Original for quite a time and that the shape of the racquet is still pretty much the same as the 6.0, I suspect he's still using the 6.0 95... but with a different string pattern.
so anyone knows what frame or string pattern has dolg decided on for 2014?
I found a blade 98S in 18x17 (similar string pattern to Grigor) thats suppose to be his frame for 2014... anyone heard about it too?
Yeah, the throat of the 6.0 85/95 are a bit different than current Pro Staffs.
What took them so long?
Wilson sure seems to be having problems with their players these days...
I like Dog's game - and think Wilson should pay him (within reason) - a shotmaker like him is worth it.
