Good find man!

Can you possibly tell us what the cost was (or a range if you'd rather)?

If you can't post pics you can send 'em to me and I'll post them on your behalf :)

Here we go with an insanely long FabFed incognito thread...

How much are you willing to sell it for?

DownTheLineWith90 01-10-2013 06:33 PM

Interesting how he lowered the weight by 8 grams

Awesome find mate, it's a beaut!  :) Looks like it was strung by Frank Messerer, Roger's personal stringer at that time.

WOW, SW of 353. No wonder he mishits so many balls. My arm would fall off with that racket

it looks like there's plastic wrap on the handle. Did you measure the racket weight with that on? Could that be the reason for the weight difference in his rackets now and the one you have?

How can a thin piece of plastic weigh 8 grams ? ;)

Judging by the Rolex the OP is wearing, it probably cost a pretty penny.

This is from 2003, before his tennis godliness began.

lidoazndiabloboi 01-10-2013 09:02 PM

who knows, maybe its double or tripled wrapped

It wont be cheap that's for sure but then again this is money well spent!
Almost an investement and will only gain profit in time...

Great find!
Interesting cos that was the year he switched to the Gut/Alu hybrid...
