    It does not look as boxy as his Head. The outside of the head actually looks abit round.

    My dunlops make the same exact noise and if you use them you will be a multiple slam winner.
    As you know i can't use them to my own advantage because it's against the wizardry rules.
    But i can always sell the to you by 1000$ a piece if you're interested.

    That beam looks disgustingly thick, I really cant believe Gulbis would actually switch racquets, so very disappointing.

    Definitely a HEAD

    Totally his old HEAD pt57e.

    Same top 3 bottom 2 cross pattern as the pro tour 630/280 radical tour etc.

    The mains have a lot of 'room' under the bottom most cross just as the pt630; unlike the wilson blades.

    Look at the 'ears' around 4 & 8 o'clock on the sides of the hoop. Just like a PT630.

    It's amazing how the BLX paintjob can change the apparent look of a racquet.

    Had me fooled until I really analyzed it compared to a pt280.

    Maybe it's due to the round waves that circle the frame : it makes it round even if it's square !!!
    Good disguise job :)
    I guess these forms have not been chosen hazardly by wilson(dt know if this is a right word... french... sorry), these paintjobs are made for it.

    I think the same, PJ of the Head as far as I'm concerned. The same thing about the bottom crosses made me take a better look at it.

    This makes way more sense than him actually switching, it's crazy how that PJ makes the beam look more like 25mm than 21mm, or maybe they have holographic projection tech now to fool the forum.

    Caps

    No need for caps as he can just use the pt57e with 15g more in the layup or under the bumper. Since they went all the distance to do the elaborate pj, HEAD may have just given him at pt57e that weighs as much as his old one but without the CAPS. The PT280 doesnt have caps but is the same weight as the pt57 mold that the HEAD players use. Slightly more weight in the layup.

    Also if you look closely the shape of the bumper guard on Gulbis 'wilson' is pure HEAD.

    PT57A (Pro Tour 630) and PT57E (i.Prestige MP) are two different molds. Gulbis is now using a Wilson H22 which uses the same string pattern as the HEAD racquets that are 630cm2. It is a racquet that many former HEAD players have switch to when they sign with Wilson. Mathieu, Tursunov, Pannetta, Dechy, and many others have all made the switch.

    I agree with VS. The bumper even says wilson on it. It's interesting how many head pro's have switched over to wilson. That h22 must be nice (or the $$ to switch must be).

    Forgot to consider the H22!

    I didn't even remember to consider the H22.

    Must be an easy transition from the HEADs since the stringbed is the same.

    -Based on the visual evidence.... Definitely blunt force trauma at the 12o'clock position and repeated pummeling resulting in structural failure at the 3o'clock and 7o'clock position..

    -Waiting for preliminary reports from the coroner's office as to official C.O.D

    -But initial statements from the State authorities prove that the suspect's actions were premeditated.

    -Motive: A classic case of Pt630/280/Pt57a 'switch remorse'.
