Andy Roddick Frame :)
 
Here are the specs:

Balance point: 13inches or 330mm
Weight: 12.1oz or 345grams
Strung with: (m) PHT and (x) NG at 65lbs
Lead tape starts at 7th cross and ends between 16th and 17th. Total length: exactly 120mm with overlapping of 25mm between 11th and 13th cross
Grip size: 4 1/2

I am really happy that I finally got it. Used to have a lot of PTs, TGKs and H22 but this is just something different :) C'mon A-Rod!!! We want you back man! :)

Nice. Got any pics of it? I always figured it would be heavier...

SOY78 08-16-2010 11:02 AM

Does it have cortex or not?

I will certainly post some photos. My wife took her nice little Cannon and all I have at this time is Nokia cell phone which is not good enough :) I will up them around 5PM ET. Yeah man, I was expecting a bit more mass as well but who am I to comment on that ;)

Bob thats awesome man. So the racquet is 13 points headlight..or did I miscalculate?

I'm not surprised it is so light..I am just amazed at the string tension in such a stiff racquet.

dincuss 08-16-2010 11:23 AM

Is it as stiff as a regular pure drive?

[d]ragon 08-16-2010 11:45 AM

Nice get! Are you going to hit with it or do you want to keep it "mint" (it's used already)?

For those who are wondering, 13 inches = 4 points HL
EDIT: I forgot it's an extended racquet so make that 6 points HL

Hi Mr. PP :)

Hmmmm according to my math it is 5 pts hl?
AFAIK:
- 305mm is 12pts and
- 315mm is 9pts hl

According to this, 330mm would be 5pts hl on extended frame?

[d]ragon 08-16-2010 11:52 AM

Bob, it should be 6 points HL
The middle point of a 27.5 racquet is 13.75
minus 13= .75 inches
1 inch = 8 points so
.75 x 8= 6 points HL

Oh trust me, I will definitely hit with it :D It is mint now so I will certainly ignore low balls ;)

Thanks for clarification! I really don't know how to calculate hl-ness for extended frame...

@dincuss: I don't know YET :)

Thanks again for the math because math doesn't lie! :)

Power Player 08-16-2010 12:30 PM

Oh ok..that makes sense to me on the balance. glad you are going to hit with it, that makes me jealous to be honest, but it's really cool..haha.

Very nice catch BobFL ... and it's the older PJ.
BTW-- It looks as if you live on a golf-course? :)

Please let us know how the racquet plays...

I remember reading that you actually own/played with the consumer version... is that correct?

Should be interesting comparing the two.

Yes, it is the cortex pj just like I said in my original post ;) Frankly speaking I do not like this "new wave" paint jobs with the "rainbow" letters that can be found on Youtek Prestiges, BLXs, GTs...

I do have PDR GT Standard BUT my dear friend 'dgoran' has swirlys and pre-cortex PDs and he is cloning this setup so we can test drive them tomorrow (weather permitting)...

dgoran 08-16-2010 04:46 PM

Once again amazing catch...
Just as I suspected for a long time I believe that we confirmed it (based on a quick beam measurements) that its swirly mold doe to its 1mm thicker beam in the throat area.

Pure Drive Team (non-swirly) has 1 mm thinner throat thus in my experiments in the past it plays softer than swirly.

Cant wait till tomorrow.

Like Bob said top 10 for last 10 yrs with 345gr racket GASP ;).
