    definitive..

    talked to a guy at our club who strung Andres raquets a few weeks ago

    He said "104 inch head, painted frames"

    idont know, but if theyre custom, then its interesting that those sticks have lead tape at the 3 and 9 positions. you can see this more clearly (although its visible in the last pic above) in a picture of him in the new tennis magazine

    I own the LM Radical OS... and watched him play yesterday... and did wonder why the racket looked smaller than my 107"... looked more like a 100" to me, but I guess it could be 104".

    All the rumors are true! Agassi does use a rubberband on his racquet.

    I hear it's just painted to look like a rubberband and that it's really a tiny midget that catches the balls and throws them back for winners.

    All jokes aside, it's interesting that Andre would prefer a rubber band over a real dampener. You can't argue with success.

    I don't think so Rickson.

    I'm not a hard hitter, and last week I lost my dampner (though it was a Yonex one) from my racket with some really hard shots.

    I'd guess if your pro, you'd leave a trail of em whereever you play.

    Don't worry, BLiND, I'll send you a whole box of dampeners!
