    Fedace, Radek didn't play the K-blade!!! it's a custom racket, look up Tarie's post, he got one from Djoko...

    Wow, thanks slice, great pics (first ones are indeed too small), if you're planning to sell one let me know.

    why.

    he could have bought some rackets from the retail stores and stick some lead tapes onto them.

    Look good, the DNX parts are painted, this is no retail stick!

    Hhaha, no I can't sell them, I really like them.
    Well, ericsson, thanks for the imageshack lesson. That was actually really easy.

    Oh, and tennis_hand, yeah, they used some pretty low-tech stickers/labels, but I put a clear strip over them to protect them from sweat and the elements.

    Of course these are not the retail version, though I think the pj is pretty good. That is why I tried to capture the flatness of the dnx collar (above the handle) and the wings (at 3 and 9 o'clock).

    The v-engine throat is really well done...and that's coming from a guy who used the c10 comp from 95 to 97, then the c10 pro from 97 until recently. Love that stick. Love this one even more.

    Slice, what is the gripsize? a guy i know at Volkl in Germany said to me Radek plays a custom pallet that is actually a 4 1/2, can you confirm that?

    ps: if not too much trouble could you send the smaller pics to my mail please?

    It says S5 on the pallet, and it does feel like a size 5 to me.

    I will post larger pics, too for you...feel free to download them from here.
