    Do a search, I remember that it is a custom bosworth version of a wilson classic 95 with no pws showing. Another paintjob in a way but custom.
    Good luck.

    No, it is NOT made by Bosworth. It is made by Dunlop/Slazenger. It is basically a Pro Staff 6.1 without PWS, but Bosworth has NOTHING, NOTHING to do with Henman.

    I have heard the bosworth thing before, as in your post. Thomas M. has my respect for being pretty correct on things, so I butt out.

    My response was to start things rolling for the original poster, as no one was replying. Interesting that TH plays with a longer version now?

    Better pictures would be nice.

    yes he plays with a longer stick, and not just a little, i compared it to my standard volkl, it was really long, i guess they made hiw switch to serve bigger. anyway sorry for the poor quality pics, but i didnt had much time though and didnt had good cam. i sold the racket already so i guess no better pics on the way.
