Help Identifying Head Pro Stock Racquets
 
I have 2 Head Pro Stock Racquets that I'd like help identifying. I'm pretty sure these are just custom molds, but any input would be appreciated. Both of these racquets belonged to James Blake (I have 4 others as well, but these are the only 2 Heads), and they are pretty clearly the Dunlop 300T mold that he used. Strung with ALU PWR at 68# and super flex. The buttcaps say the grip is 4 1/2, but it doesnt feel that big - definitely a custom grip. Oh, the grip is a mold, not normal Head Pallets. Both have silicone in the handles and lead in the throat and around the hoop. Took them to my local shop and the owner said they both weighed in at 13.3 oz strung, as is. I don't have SW or RA figures.

These are by far the sweetest sticks I have ever hit with. I absolutely love the flex and the heft...but, as would be expected, they are much to heavy for me to wield effectively for more than 1 set. If anyone has any info on these particular racquets or the custom racquet process at HEAD, I'd greatly appreciate it. Mods, if you feel this should be moved to the Pro Racquet section, please feel free (i figured I'd get more answers here, and still not 100% positive that these frames haven't been made by Head for any other purpose). Thanks in advance for any input!

I think you answered your own question.

He might be asking for the code.

Blake travelled to Austria and had HEAD make him his racquets. But in the end even the great Kennelbach racquet techs could not get it right for Blake. He has the same problem as Delpo. They cant use a newly manufactured racquets that are the same as the old ones. With the old ones the resin has broken down and feel different to them from the new manufactured racquets. They are the only one's that I have ever heard of having this problem. Dont forget that HEAD was manufacturing Boris Becker's frames for him the last 6 years of his career. They got it right for Boris but could not for Blake.:???::confused::shock:
