    And he is rocking it at stock weight..nice.

    Yet guys on here get their sticks "pushed around" by 4.0 balls.

    lol.

    Synthetic grip now as well? Did he have his old racquets leaded up?

    Thought Harrison used the 18x20 Storm Ltd. Anyone know when he switched to the 16x20?

    Also, no way possible that there's not some led snuck up under the bumper, right?

    thanks for the pics and info.

    to be fair, it's 11.8oz / 335g static weight with a swing weight of 333, so not a superlight stick. add an over grip and you're at 340g static.

    still though. point taken. it's proves you don't need 12+ ounces.

    Without a doubt.
    People on here say they get pushed around with sticks that are 11-11.9 though. It's insane but I have read it.

    I used the PST for a while. It is a very stable stick..actually plays heavier than the specs. Definitely a tour level stick IMO.

    Did not see lead under the bumper.....one stick was pretty beat up and the bumper torn and all we saw was frame. Two of the sticks came right from Babs sealed.

    FYI Harrison strings his own sticks when home.....uses the stringers at tourneys but likes to string own sticks when possible.

    I thought he wasn't using leather on his PSL's either?

    Harisson plays with quite a lot of spin. Perhaps it is one of the reason to move to more open string pattern. Great pics and info!

    Yeah, and on the other hand, you have the Sampras who had chronic shoulder tendinitis because of his heavy as hell racquets. Something like in the 350-380g range for his PS 6.0, despite the ridiculous size of the racquet. Bigger isn't always better indeed. If you don't have the arm to move the racquet, it can be as light or heavy as hell, doesn't change anything.

    Yep.........understand Babolat is putting silicone in the handle.......didn't tear open or look inside but it's pretty well known they are putting it in the handle.

    Question: Why would you do ATW? That frame is 16x20, with mains finishing at the top. So you can just continue top-bottom on the long side.

    Nope.......he just dropped off the sticks and talked about the different tensions he was wanting to test. Checked the bumper as one was well used and the other two sticks as u see were in Babolat bags
