    AeroPro Drive Original (Grip Size ???)
    9.5g of lead under the bumper
    2.5g one inch up from the buttcap
    RPM Blast 15L
    55lbs - 25kg
    One Replacement Grip
    One Overgrip
    SkinFeel Black Replacement Grip
    VS Overgrip

    okay, if anyone has PROOF that nadal uses 4 1/4, skinfeel or vs original grip then tell me.
    if you DON'T have proof then just leave it, lol.

    Can we just sticky all the threads about Rafael Nadal's actual setup? It seems like someone posts a new thread about it everyday.

    ^^ diameter of the string.

    15L, 16, 16L, 17, 17L, 18... etc if there are any others that i've never heard of. 15L is bigger that 16, which is bigger than 16L, etc...

    You should ask FabFed, owner of Nadal's match racquets.

    according to Babolat I think they still claim Roddick actually uses the Pure Drive GT Roddick Plus as well as the Pro Team OG, if they don't claim that anymore they certainly did for a while.
