    is it a real probraided henman?? looks just like mine when i see it on tv but heck, that doesnt say much.

    also, is the ti-mo in the mains or is the gut in the crosses? any idea what tension he uses, i remember he said on his site before but i cant remember.

    henman doesnt seem like the kinda guy who would use a paintjob. and i know for sure he's not using the x1 cuz thatd be ridiculous to paint it like a discontinued model.

    Thanks
    Bobby

    Ciao :D
    One month ago, i have bought a used Slaz ProBraided Tim Henman signature series like the one of the link under
    http://cgi.****.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=22716&item=3691369860#ebayphotohosting

    great racket in my opinion, i'm very satisfied with "her"

    For me it isnt the real Tim's racket, because if you take a look at

    http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/CFW/Product.aspx?p=2&e=0&pg=1&am=-1

    and type Henman in the search box, in a lot of pics that you'll find it's possible to check the difference in the part where the two part of the frame meet the oval (ehm! sorry for my english), for me Tim, that in the start of his carrer plaied with the Wilson pro-staff, use a personal frame very near the Wilson pro-staff (a pro-staff modified without PWS).
    I think that Slazenger when put Tim under contract have made a special frame for him, with the best pro-staff feel it's possible to made.

    For the strings i have no idea (i use the Head Rip Control and seems good for me).

    This always in my opinion.
    Ciao and W Tim Henman

    It is based on the Wilson Classic 6.1,

    Dorellik is right when he says that it was specially made for him by Slazenger.

    yeah, it's basically a psc 6.1 mold used to make tim's custom racquet. as for strings, i believe it's timo mains strung low, and nat gut crosses.

    I believe he uses Lux BB timo 17 on his mains and Bab VS nat gut 17 on his crosses. Tension is in the mid 70's
