The predictable "What racket is Steve Darcis using?" thread
 
The frame edges looked a bit boxy and squared off...is it an H22 or some variant of it? Is it similar to what Mahut uses?

I swear i thought about creating a thread such as this one...

^^ It's ok buddy, I'll cop the withering sighs and tired eye-rolls :-)

It looks similar to the racket that Rosol uses

Probably a PJ of the HPS just like every other player that uses the current PJ

In fact, he probably borrowed Rosol's racquet. ;-)

Federer needs to switch to that racquet too.

I beg to differ, Nadal should think about switching!

Apparently a six.one 95 according to Wilson

OP, thanks. I was getting ready to do a search.

Is Darcis a Wilson lifer? Thought he used Head at one point.

Here is a photo of Steve Darcis's racket taken in June 2012:



Hope this can be of help,

yes, the predictability of talking about a pros racquet in a pro racquet discussion forum...thats some scary crystal ball action.

I'm seeing more and more players with this racquet, the 6.1 95 18x20. Darcis and Rosol beat Nadal with it, and today Navarro won in the Women's draw. Also Mardy Fish. A couple of other lower-ranked players, and double players, use it too. In the 16x18 pattern, I only know of Del Potro and Kolshchreiber using it.

EDIT: Del Potro also uses the 18x20. And seeing his rocket of a forehand, I find it funny that people think this string pattern is «low-powered»...

It's all relative (and probably only a few % points) - the pros have the technique to gen power - that's why many are using the same racket they did when they were 14.

I want to know what shirt he was wearing… the logo looked like 2 bananas.
