What strings does raga use and does he use a leather grip with over grip? Or a synthetic?
i have no idea what he uses but folks say his racquet is about 330 gram total (more or less) and im talking about his actual frame and not the retail one, just the swingweight is very very high, so i supose he uses something along the lines of even balance or head heavy racquet.
Also, as pointed out to me once, and im still new to the forum, the search button is your friend, but what they dont tell you is, that there is a better way for you to search, just go into the famous search engine (probably you have it as your home page adress) and search the specs of the nadal racquet and type tt or talktennis as well!
I think it was around 54 pounds with RPM Blast, the grip is just a Babolat Overgrip.
I don't think he uses RPM, from what I've heard, it's Babolat Duralast in a 15 gauge.
Nope. It's full RPM 15 at 55.
There is no "15" RPM Blast. It's a full bed of 16 strung at 55. His string before that since the very beginning of his career was Duralast 16 gauge. He uses a 4 1/4 stick with two Babolat overgrips.
He uses 15L RPM, a custom string made for him by Babolat. Before that, he used 15L Duralast. He uses a 4 1/4 handle with a Babolat Syntec Replacement grip and a Babolat VS overgrip.
55 lb tension.
i think he uses either rpm blast or pro hurricane
He uses a custom gauge of RPM Blast. I cannot remember if it's 15 or 15L, but it's what he uses as stated by multiple posters that strung for him.
this was by a poster a long time ago, he either strung rafa's racket himself or got a chance to go into the stringing room I forgot which!
credits to him/her!
but yeah, 15g rpm it is!
And here we go again.!!
To the OP, best to use the search function as this has been discussed many times, with the truth being revealed and counter arguments & opinions dismissed. I for one have added to previous threads, and had the experience of stringing some of his rqts!
Spot on, although he quotes 25kg.
thats wrong rafas tension only works in kilos, like ron yu said about rogers
he strings at 25/25
*edit: but what about his gauge exactly in mm 1,35 or 1,40???
25 kgs = 55 lbs
There is no 15 available to the public.
Even my Babolat product catalog that I got for being sponsored, on the back it says Rafael Nadal RPM Blast 135/15
The photo showed 25.5 Kg.
25.5 kilogram = 56.217 876 857 pound
you can clearly see it's pro hurricane
Doesn't mean it IS pro hurricane.
you're saying that babolat is telling everyone he's using the rpm but on his strings it says pro hurricane but infact he's using the rpm ?
He is using RPM but his strings say Pro Hurricane Nadal, if I remember correctly.
why would his strings would say hurricane if it's rpm ?
Its happened before, His old Duralast used to say Pro Hurricane Nadal. Chances are this was prototype RPM. That is an old photo, one of Fabfeds by the looks if things.
Will there be same chang when he back.
