    He must've made the change recently, but it's kind of strange going from 93 sq.in. (which what his serve needs) to 100 sq.in. Has he changed his game too? I can't envision him hitting flat serves with that thing.

    It's the 5th image on their site

    To see Karlovic with a Flexpoint Instinct is like to see Philippousis and Safin with Flexpoint Instinct too.

    Karlovic has been using an Instinct for quite some while now. ...and for the curious: Greg Raven's site has the specs of it as 339 grams (11.95 ounces), 31.4 cenitmeter (12.4 inches) balance point, and a swingweight of 348.

  4. Actually, right before the Instinct, Karlovic had been using a 630.

    As of the 2006 Pacific Life Open, Karlovic's racquets were actual Flexpoint Instincts.

    I dont think that it is an actual instinct flexpoint. Everything looks the same except the head size

    Did you read the posts above yours, or just the topic title? Do you have something to back up your assertion?
