Recently, I strung one of those 90sq in RF rackets with the babolat team gut at 60lbs and I felt its specs really similar to K90.

I would definitely want to get my hands on one of them, but not because they belonged to Fed, but just because I want a PS85. lol

That racquet is too demanding for you.

LOL, jorel, don't be too upset! :)
Now if only the OP would tell us how he managed to get hold of this stash from Roger...... I really doubt he will sell though...:cry:

Nanshiki 09-20-2008 09:52 AM

Well you haven't explained how you got them...

VGP 09-20-2008 10:10 AM

Does he (I assume he's a he) have to explain?

If you wanna know, it wouldn't hurt to ask nicely.....

Nanshiki 09-20-2008 10:33 AM

Getting one racquet means you're lucky. Getting 10 usually means they're stolen :) (or very, very, very, very connected)

Nanshiki, please don't call 911. I didn't steal them from Roger! Also, I didn't spend any cent to buy them.

mozzer 09-20-2008 11:07 AM

You must be one of Rogers freinds, work for wilson, or be his stringer or something to get them for free :/

Hueco514 09-20-2008 11:17 AM

Whether you are or not, you must be pretty lucky to see what sticks he uses. From 85 to 95 lol Nice paintjobs.

gocard 09-20-2008 11:31 AM

great pictures, thanks!

Colecash 09-20-2008 02:08 PM

PS85 forever
 
Thanks for the great photos specially the "domino effect, itīs really cool. Finally you can provide all "tennis geeks" the specs of the PS90 Fed uses and the Ps85(weight, swingweight, balance).
Please:cry:.
By the way are these really from the fed stash?
You could be rich selling the rackets for 1000$ each.

The 90 sq. in. one should be a PS Tour 90 with the HPS 6.0 paintjob on it so it should theoretically play just like a retail PS Tour 90 or at least close to it.

I don't think Federer ever used the 95, although he may have tried it in practice. I think the OP only included the 95 in his pics for comparison purposes.

VGP 09-20-2008 04:45 PM

BP - the cross string drill spacing isn't like the PS Tour 90 or the N90. It's what they have in the retail K90. Federer could have had it this way from the beginning......
