Madrid 2006: 368g 31.2cm
Paris 2008: 367g 31.8cm
Are these correct, and can you list all the Federer specs please that you've actually found out yourself?
(Will save me going through any more old threads)
And I promise to calculate and post the specs of my May2003 racket as soon as I've added lead back in the throat etc.
In 2006 it wasn't me "in the flesh
" who took the specs, it was an "some other guy...
", so I can't confirm it 100%.
But in 2008 I recall that those ware the specs that I could measure in a "rush situation"
So ~367g with BP: ~31.8cm, it seems to be the actual specs of his rackets.
But like Tony said, this is the "old prostaff 85" with bigger head, so the layup would be very different from the retail rackets. That is the cause that P1 receives the rackets from Wilson pro room, the line production of his rackets must be the same they have used for the rackets that Sampras used in the past.
