    Anyone familiar with Greul's racquet? It is a Prince, but don't know which one, maybe an Ozone Pro Tour? Would anyone know?

    Very impressive clay courter...

    wow nobody seems to know, and most likely did not even hear about the guy, because he is not in top 10, but a "shabby" 115 :)

    Also, I have a feeling you are the perfect person to ask another question relating to strings of these pros, especially german (and few italian) pros that I see.

    I see an "X" stenciled on their racquets underneath the racquet co. logo.
    I have a FXP pj'ed PC600 (with kirschbaum/gut) and it does have the same X under the Head logo. What exactly is this?? :)

    Pacific is the X. And Greul is using it. A few months ago he was using a blacked out K Blade 98 because his 03 was hurting his arm. Still having a Prince stencil put on to appease the sponsors.

    Well thanks for the info!! Well I am curious (and jealous) how you have access to such "insider" info?!? :)

    And surprising to see him why he'd steer away from Princes as he appears to have played with them for a long time. Prince/along with those o-ports, has the most buttery feel among most racquet co's, should be less stiff than Wilson. Interesting that he wants to switch.

    Greul is an "off the beaten path" player since he is not in top 100 that I came across watching him. But I digged the way he played when he schooled pretty much everyone on his way in a tourney in Italy. He kicks ass on clay! :)

    Yeah, that X/Pacific stencil (as I find out now) exists in so many pros's sticks.....It looks pretty cool imo

    He played qualies at a tournament I strung at a few months ago. The black paint was not professionally done and he requested a "P" stencil, so I had to ask why. He said Prince was working with him to solve the arm issues he was having, but for now he was most comfortable with the Wilson. I believe he has or will go back with Prince.
