    Yesterday I saw Blake practicing in New Haven. He is playing with a black frame, definitely experimental. Racquets head size is 98, as the other guy (I guess Robin Vik) is playing with MSpeed 98 and both of the racquets are looking nearly same in headsize. Head shape is oval and no O3 ports, so it looks like either a extension of graphite series or may be modified Diablo.

    Any one else happened to watch that practice?

    Yes, we talk a lot of bullcrap here, but we do establish things. One of these is that, under that black paint, that is not a Prince. Another is that Ivanovic is hot... or fat... Hummm, no, Ivanovic's hottness has not been established, yet.

    He doesn't. Multiple users on this board have strung for him and confirm that it is a frame exclusive to professional players; i.e a custom mold.

    Well, I was told that you're a complete moronic dumbass, and you have been for a while now. But unlike you, I have plenty of evidence to back up my words.

    i have heard that the ag 300 tour is the same mold as given to the professional players. Is there any truth to this?

    It's the closest production frame you can buy to the mold Blake uses. They aren't 100% identical, but they are quite close in terms of headsize, beam width, and other similar characteristics. Obviously, weight, balance, and things like that are much different.

    No and no. As many have already said. Not sure who "told" you that, but it wasn't someone who knows.
