    Canas is using a Wilson Npro Surge. I think he is holding out for a larger contract before switching to the KSurge.

    He plays very well with it, and is able to control the extra power of the frame.

    Unlikely.

    A little more unlikely. Maybe an older 6.1, but I'd bet my life savings (I'm on college, so that's not much) that it isn't an nSix-One 95. Not a chance in hell.

    PS6.1 is a 95 I believe and Canas' frame looks more like 98 or 100 to me.
    But I cannot be sure.

    I did include the phrase, "or a previous version of the 6.1"

    Pics!!!

    Hi, today I saw two Canas racquets in Rome, one with the npro pj and one with the nsix-one pj.
    They were both 18x20, longer than standard so they should be prostaffs 6.1 strech, as Argentino stated.
    He uses such a low tension, 17,5 Kg or 18,5 Kg!

    Here some pics of the two racquets together. You can also spot Ferrer's Prince with his name on the throat.

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I cannot believe that Ferrer uses a synthetic grip.
