    How similar is Mspeed 98 to Kafelnikovs racquet?
    I know that his is a little more heavy.... but what more?
    All the Pro number one racqets have been quite similar to each other exept for the paintjob, right?

    And what was with the butt of his racket?? What was the reasoning behind it being shaped as it was and how did he feel he benefited?

    i think he used to be a hockeyplayer, thats why he had that awkward buttcap, i guess he just like the feel of it.
