    I know he uses a paint job to look like the N 61 but is it the hps 6.1?
    and I think he uses gut but not sure.

    It doesn't look like a HPS 6.1 at all. I think it's a custom racquet based on the HPS 7.1 Zone mold, since they have very similar head shapes.

    I don't think he's ever used a real ROK. The ROK's headshape is almost rectangular and his racquet isn't.

    Sure it's not! All Voelkl tour racquets have 8 main strings inside the throat (is this the right word?), Dent's has only six. Also his stick has PWS.
    But it's not a nSix-One 95, because it has 16/19 string pattern. The nSix-One 95 has 16/18 or 18/20. It looks really strange. Surely it's a Wilson, but no nCode.

    Could be the pro staff classic custom drilled up.

    Taylor's racquet is custom made for him by Wilson. I've posted the specs elsewhere on this message board.
