Federers stick
go to current tennis mag, I think page 75 has a close up on face shot of his racqet head last year at Wimbledon.

Notice on the PWS part of the frame, 3&9 oclock, that he has 4 crosses coming out, a stock tour 90 has 5 strings coming out form this same area, yet both Rog's and the stock verson are 16x19 patterns, so Rog has a more open pattern in th emiddle.

A PS 85 has 4 strings coming out of this zone eventhough the PSW is shorter on the 85 frame, the spacing is still wider than the stock tour 90.

Also the tour 90 stock is missing some feel and for 5" bigger has a squirly sweetspot. Looks like Rog picked up on this and the string spacing has something to do with it. Crappy hyper carbon effect as well. I wouldn't be surprised if his molds do not have hyper carbon and just use the holy grail comp of 80/20.

... the pattern changed after the n90, all k/blx/blx2/ps90 has 4 crosses coming out of the PWS to give a more open pattern.

The 6.0 PS 85 had a denser sweetspot, and the PS Tour 90 and n90 accomplished that by having 5 crosses coming out of the PWS.

What's with all the 9 year old threads being brought back to life... did the troll school let out for the year?
