    Like how in the first pic there is "16x19" on the racquet when he uses an 18x20 pattern?

    Almost as bad as the painted liquid metal on Agassi's and Safin's racquets!!

    david, can't tell from your picture, but is the fish a sticker or is it actually part of the racket's finish? Either way, brilliant tennis equipment folk art, but especially good if it's imbedded in the finish.**

    **I kind of miss the days when pros' names were on their frames (everybody on my block pined, literally pined, for a cherry Pernfors Autograph, released by Snauwaert in the USA a solid 12-15 months after Mikael's career high-point)

    The other frame I have from him (300G PJ) is strung the same way, no blue alu but you're right about the powerpads. He usually ask for them but not on this one.

    I should have mentioned it's the beater he was practicing with before heading off to Australia. Hence the stickers on the throat. It does have the Dunlop stencil though...

    Because it has a few paint chips, it didn't make the trip to Australia.

    Hehe. Like I said in my previous post, those are stickers (hiding the Dunlop logo on both sides). He probably got them from his favourite sushi restaurant : )

    Pernfors? Man, that's a throwback! I remember him wearing the Nike McEnroe line with style during his French Open... Stylish dude.

    Forgot to mention -- I played with the stick today and I swear I could feel a difference in play between that paintjob and the previous one. Which sort of lead me to think about Tommy Haas' grudge toward the rubber finish of his HM200G (he had issues with the color scheme as well).

    david quick question. When you play with a real pros racquet does it feel superior to a stock model?
