    Search the PT57E vs...thread that I went into details of the PT57E that is indeed a Pro's stick (about 352g with no lead on it and the SW> 350).
    My other sticks (three of the TGK238.1) belonged to the Pros, too -- two to Volandri and the third to ???
    Volandri's sticks were very heavy when acquired, however, the previous owner has taken all the lead and silicone off the sticks...

    Hey mate,

    I hit with (I don't own it, my friend does) Roddicks racket in December last year. Search for the thread, it was called "I hit with Roddicks actual racquet!!" or something along those lines. Theres pictures and a quick review of how it played. you'll find it...someone dug it up just a couple of days ago

    Roddick's racquet isn't that heavy, 12.1 oz, really tight strings (pro hurricane/bab vs gut) and a 1/2 grip, with a tournagrip over it. Added 1/2 inch length is helpful on serve, i could hit insane angles and just the overall balance is great for serving. He does use the woofer system, no cortex, it has a very crisp response. It's not for a flat hitter, you've got to use alot of spin. But I liked it, favorite shot, serve (obviously) :-D
