do you know what's under Head PT57 F Paintjob ?
Thanks to confirm me...
I didn't know such a racquet existed. Can you post pics? My guess would be that it's the PT630 mold with a quite stiff layup.
Never heard of it. Normally listed as an A or an E, not an F. VsBabolat is the man to ask.
F?! There can be no such racquet!
That must be 'E' with a missing '_'
PT57 mold + FXP = Very Rare... "PT57F"
- Select elite players used it a few years back. I'll play test and provide a review under "racquets" when I find time.
I had 3
I thought PT57 Mold + FXP = TGK223.2........
Hey VS- Maybe the frames are similar in composition? I can say with certainty that the 57F origin is Kennelback (to me via Belgium )... not sure about the one you mentioned?
yeah Xavier said he got 3. so why not just put up a picture. thanks.
Is that what Acasuso and Wawrinka were using in 2008?
my coach is who good friends with fernando gonzalez and nicolas massu and other good players from chile has 3 of the PT10s with flexpoints. The same frames Acasuso used for a short period.Next time I string one for him I'll be sure to take some pictures. His have the collars on the grips and are wrapped with calfskin.
Wait... so the PT57F is an actual racquet? Or is this just a joke?
Cool! I'll be waiting for the pictures.
pt57f is an actual racquet.
did it include the fxp tech or did it just have a pj of an fxp?
I just picked up this racquet last week! This racquet really has Flexpoint holes, I think the A and E don't. Other than that I really don't know what the differences are in terms of layup, stiffness etc....
Does anyone else have any info on this racquet?
Nobody has any info on this racket because it does not exist. Unless you post a picture.
Item number: 130369252576
thanks man. But how can we tell this is 57F?
Where can I find the pictures?
YAVW. I am not sure about that but it looks like 57F to me...
Use the item number I posted and you will find a few....
I don't think I can post pics because of my post count. I can take pics and email them for somebody to post.
Did Julius Caesar not exist cause I couldn't post pics his pics?
You can send them to me and I will post them in nooooooooo time

PT57F Engineering Code
ok thanks. finally so this thing is real.
Of course it is real -- there is PT57A, B, E, F...
We mainly know the details about the A & E, now we will learn about the F, too
Hey DR! So, are you at you're new location now? Lot's of red clay courts??
OK, here they are:
And don't forget the PT57C and D
SO what is PT57-B?
I am in Prague now, but coming back (home) on Saturday... Then moving in April
No red clay here -- just snow
JK, it will be red clay everywhere...
something must be different because I have a Pt57A with real flexpoint dimples
So...who killed Kennedy again ???
Are those REAL Flex Point dimples ?
I have a PT57A with same PJ but my nipples, sorry dimples have fallen off
No evidence I can see that this is a PT57F. It just says PT 57, and you can't tell from the pics that the Flexpoint is real or fake. What makes you think it's an "F"?
Yes, they are real fxp dimples.
I little info about those dimples........
Thanks for that VS! That makes sense now. The frames don't feel overly flexy, infact I'd say a bit less flexy than 57A, in that way. Anyway, I enjoy that aspect of these frames... friendly feeling volleys! Great from the ground and serves as well... for me.
I've got one of Guga's Radical FXPs, a PT167A (it came from his brother who did some coaching at my club apparently.) Has the dimples but they are different to the ones on my FXP Prestige (non pro stock.)
You can see straight through the little holes on the Guga frame but not on the usual/proper Flexpoint model.
On the commercial retail Flexpoint Radical MP you could see staight through the flexpoint holes. While on the Commercial retail Flexpoint Prestige you could not see through the flexpoint holes.
Ah, that would be why then. I've not seen a proper Radical flexpoint up close. Are the flexpoints on the PT frames just drilled through and not bendy (or whatever) like the retail ones are supposed to be?
Well, I can see that they are drilled in but I can't see all the way through or anything (not sure if you can see all the way through on any of the fxp frames?) Yeah, the 57's aren't as flexy as you would expect. Not sure if that means the holes are operational or not?
Let's keep in mind that it was arguable whether or not even the "real" Flexpoint actually did anything. (Physics certainly dictates that it didn't do what the the advertising diagrams suggested.)
