    I was just looking at some pictures off yahoo, and came across some photos of Ivo Karlovic's stick. It turns out I see the flexpoint holes on the sides. I just thought it was interesting and thought I would share with you guys.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, it kind of looks like you can see the black paint being scuffed off to see the gold of the instinct?

    you can definitly look closer at the 3+9 spots on the frame and see that there are grooves for a flexpoint racquet...look for yourself...

    Yeah, I've held his racquet at IW this year, and it is the WORST pj I have ever seen. The black paint was literally peeling off everywhere revealing the Flexpoint underneath. It looked seriously amateurish, as if Ivo painted it himself earlier that day.:)

    Yeah! Just what is going on with the grip area?! Why does the tournagrip or whatever only go half/three-quarters the way up?

    His grip size is huge, probably 4 3/4 if not more.

    It's actually something like 5 1/4, IIRC.
