    It's just a paint job of a 30 year old frame anyway, Prestige Class 600 rules blah blah

    You are correct that the Prestige Classic 600 is a great frame that is still used on the Tour today. Just ask Rainer Schuettler:)

    But Federer is using K6-1 Tour 90.

    Well that is not true there are good racquets out there. Have you tried the Volkl PB 10 Mid? I think that is a great racquet. You should give it a try. That might change your mind.

    now look at the picture above and compare it to your MG...
    Hint, look at the throat area where the Microgel has "gradual" corners whereas the racke in the picture has "sharper", just like the PC600 had.

    Does your MG have that plastic collar above the grip, too? Check out the PC600.

    I know you're trying to be smart, but it is not working well here...

    I can give you a few more clear examples...

    Not everything.
    Some things definitely are: Novak's Racket, PT57x, Murray's stick, etc... Some things are very obvious...some less...most are speculations...

    And this is a real Flexpoint Prestige Mid. Just kidding it really is a Prestige Classic 600.
    Not everything is a "Paint Job" on Tour. There are quite a few though.

    That is right it is a Prestige Classic 600. My sarcasm did not come through very well.

    Ah yes! Since you've asked.

    Federer's new frame has a circular, 90 sq. in head.
    It's made be Wilson.

    But wait, wasn't there some noise from an island of insanity saying that Federer could no longer compete with such an outdated "bat" in the "modern" game and that he would be changing to a larger frame? I think the timeline for the change was the 2009 Australian Open. Oooops.

    Federer's "new" frame, if any, will be the same frame with new paint. There may be a tweak or two, but everything else will remain the same. Why change a good thing?

    True, but a new paintjob will be released, and therefore, a new set of Wilson frames to the public.

    Beginning of 2010, a new Six-One, Tour, Surge etc. series will be released. The Blades, Pros, etc. will follow in a year.

    Sounds like marketing hype to me.

    Good way to get all the k90-users to buy new sticks. (Watch the Classifieds section.)

    I caught a glimpse of Fed's racquet against Tsonga today...it had a glossy finish and a more elongated head...(the head shape might look different because the W stencil looked different too).

    pity he wasn't worth watching at the end of the final set though... I was looking at his racquet too, looked either elongated - or thinner than regular consumer one, no?
