RPM blast, the string. I see lots of lead on the head

dgoran 03-12-2013 09:12 AM

Looks like 2 strips of 6 inch tape at 3 and 9
Don't think its rpm because its twisted shaped poly ala sonic pro edge etc...

I would be interested if anyone knew his racquets specs

PED 03-14-2013 05:17 AM

Can't think he changed his specs much in the move from Head to Yonex, the old specs were 359g unstrung and 31cm balance, also un.

dgoran 03-14-2013 07:28 AM

Hmm ped where did you get those specs I read here before in awesome jura thread that his prestiges use to be 348gr 31.3 bal but I just wondered if he changed with move to yonex

I didn't get them from Jura but can't remember exactly. I do remember they were from a reputable source or else I wouldn't have recorded them :)

Is there any evidence that he is using the 95d. I don't understand why Yonex would say he is using 98d at first, then 97 if he is really using 95d. I don't see what difference it makes to yonex what racket he uses when it's still a yonex racket.

If I had to guess I'd say the larger head sizes are more marketable and easier to sell to the average player.

Simple reason that its newer. IIRC the 97 came around the same time Yonex signed him

No prestretch. but why the difference in main and crosses ? 27 kg for main and 25 kg for crosses. What does that do?

Opens up the sweetspot a little more. Also, because it's a Yonex and it has an isometric head shape, people tend to drop a kilo or 2 for the crosses because of the smaller distance between the side of the racquet (shorter crosses) than a conventional racquet.

I Heart Thomas Muster 04-17-2013 10:09 PM

If I recall correctly didn't Yonex (at least at one time) recommend lowering the tension on the crosses?

That's the version that Babolat makes for their touring pros. It gives hellish spin.
