    Bosworth indeed. Already at least one good sized thread on this.

    Bosworth, I assume it's based on the Fox (Bosworth design) from years ago that Brad Gilbert also used.
    The 8 sided design, or whatever it is....

    Bosworth (Warren) was a racket guru who did all the customizing and stringing on Lendl's Adidas
    rackets during his hey day.

    See players change rackets every seven/nine games, have the rackets in plastic etc....blame Bosworth/Lendl.

    The design is old school, but the stick is completely adaptable. You choose your variables and Bosworth makes it (and sends you a hefty price-tag)

    Saw him practicing with Murray today at the USO. It did not look like the bosworth that I did see him using at the senior tour to me. A Wilson? But maybe I just didn't see it right..
