    Both the port and hole inserts for the Rebel 95 are yellow. The racquet comes stock with the hole inserts. I'm sure that's what he's using.

    Anyone know what string/tension he has in there? I'm pretty sure it's still full BB Alu but just want to make sure...

    Also, looking at that last pic, I noticed he put on a leather grip? Did he do that with his prestiges or is it something new? His stick must be pretty heavy after all the customizations.

    Why the debate?

    I am not sure why there is a debate in this thread concerning the racket he is using.

    There are threads from months ago which stated he was testing a Prince, and more recently that he had signed with Prince.

    It is quite obvious from pictures from awhile back that he is using a Prince, even when the frame is blacked out.

    The speedport technology is patented, no on else can use it, thus the logical conclusion is that he is and was using a Prince.

    This was obvious a long time ago.

    It might be patented, but it looks like other brands are now seeing the light (no pun intended) and following Prince to get around that patent by putting holes in other parts of the frame...surprised there isnt more chatter about that...strange??

    still waiting to hit with the Rebel Team 95...hope to this week.

    The background is black, though. You can see that there is no crowd behind that part of the racquet. You wouldn't see any light through the holes because the background is completely in shadow.

    Do you see them now?

    As I posted previously the question as to whether Monfils was using a Prince with Speedports was resolved weeks ago. If the below picture is not evidence enough, I don't know what will be short of someone snatchin monfils actual racket.

    He's definitely playing with the Rebel 95. There is a large pic of him on the cover of the Prince 2009 catalogue in which it is clear as day.
