    Now all we need to know how HL it is? And how so you go about measuring that accurately.

    The lates 90 paintjob is really good. White, red and gold pin stripes. Ironic that the first good 90 PJ since the ncode and Fed doesn't use it.

    reverse thinking. what benefit is there if wilson gives roger a different spec and sells to public a different racket? the cost of manufacturing 2 different specs is pretty clear to wilson.

    I think taking a stock K90 is a safer bet. But ofcourse there is no evidence to that.

    Hi Ron, could you explain exactly what kind of knot is it and how to do that? I can't figure it out from that pic.
    I'm just curious, do you make power pads on your own or buy them?
    Thanks.
    P.S. You guys @ P1 rule, I'm a big fan of your work

    Hello Fabfed, could you measure the entire length of the racket in cm. I´d be glad if you could. I believe the length is really important respecting the balance. Also if you like to measure Rafa and Nole´s rackets too to see if there is any difference... Thanks!!!

    I think FabFed is no longer active on this forum.

    Does anybody know how this racquet was strung?
    the top tie off cross knot @9h, how did the stringer do it..... any information would be very much appreciated.

    I'd like to know because, I have to start my cross knot on a main.

    Maybe someone from P1 can confirm but I imagine they used a starting clamp so they could tie off on the cross.
