    Anyone know what he's using today? Also, what are the specs?

    I just saw him playing against Courier on the Tennis Channel in a rebroadcast of the 2008 Dubai Outback Series. I'm pretty sure he was using a Wilson 6.1 K90, but have no idea of the specs.

    I was wondering about this as well. I did a couple of freeze frames and it did look like a K90 but didn't he used to play with a 6.1 95 or something similar?

    No, Edberg is now using as big a frame as he ever has. He, for all but one month of his professional career used the ProStaff 85.

    He used original prostaff 85(like sampras) but his was painted like 6.1 95 and his photo was in 6.1 95 packaging. that's when i started playing tennis and fell for it and bought 6.1 95. :)

    Aaaaahhhhhh. Thanks for clearing that up. That makes sense that he played with the PS85.

    Probably his K90 has been customized but no visible signs of lead in any of the pics I've seen of his racquet at various events in the last three years or so. He was using the NCode 90 until last year.

    Maybe he's playing it stock?

    I wonder if Pat Rafter is using a stock Aerogel 500? Somehow I doubt it.
