    I posted some photos of his frame here:

    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=372144

    He strings with wilson natural gut in mains, and timo in the crosses. requests both strings to be pre-stretched, and strings at 55 lbs.

    swing weight is 349, static weight is 365.5 including overgrip, string and power pads.

    I expected his swingweight to be higher, but pretty heavy frame nonetheless. great pics Drak.

    Judging the by recent pic posted by drakulie in his aforementioned thread, Fish must be using close to 28" racquet. Just look at the length of the section from the top of the grip to the throat... around 1" more than the regular specs.

    He's back, and with a new stick. Looks like a ps 97. Interesting switch to 16 mains vs. 18 when he last played. I'm excited to see him back!

    Always like the Fish man. His stick does look longer than 27" yesterday. His opponent's looks shorter and that should be a 27". Wish he had S&V more.
