I suspect he was using this racquet only because it is black to show respect to the death of Miguel Boyer. He did wear a black outfit too. And he obviously had no intention to win the match, because he was at the funeral in Madrid today.
What makes you think its a paintjob?
Looks like the BX2 X Force Pro to me. It is the same mold as his old Fischer (M Pro No 1) and plays nearly identical. I played the Fischers and play the BX2 X Force Pro now myself.
Im playing the BX2 XForce Pro since 2 weeks. I only added some lead at 3 & 9 and I am really happy with those sticks. After getting used to the lower power again (switching from the Blade 16x19), I find constant lenghts in my groundstrokes. (To make up for the lower power I also had to reduce...
I have no doubt that the pacif frames are great racquets. But I dont buy their marketing BS:
BX2: 30% more basalt fibers within the same material 28% stronger
20% lighter in overall fiber weight 20% more vibration dampening
Lighter and stronger but the racquet has still the same weight and...
I asked for a testracquet directly from Pacific. I wanted to test the X Force Pro BX2 (16 mains). They sent me the 18 mains BX2-version. So I asked them to send me the 16mains-racquet again. This time they sent me the X-Force Pro (16mains) of the first generation (not BX2).
I guess that is...
Thank you all for your inputs!
I am still unsure which racquets to get.
The 3 M Speed Pro No 1 will cost me only 180 euro, while the 3 Pacific X Force Pro BX2 will cost me around 450 euro.
If I knew the Fischer will be matched closely, I would take them.
I wouldnt mind the different feel, as long as the new Pacific racquets flex like the old Fischer.
Right now im playing the Blade 98 16x19 and its too stiff for my liking. I have problems with the lenghts of my shots and my wrist is playing up.
If those speed were the same weight, swingweight...
Thank you very much for clearing that up.
I think thats bad news for me as I have read that the "M Speed Pro No1" do not have "zero tolerance", while the M Pro No 1 do have this feature. If they dont have "zero tolerance", the speeds are knocked out of my considerations ;-)
Im getting new racquets :-)
I have to choose between 3 brandnew Fischer M Pro No 1 (320g) and the Pacific X Force Pro BX2.
I know, they are from the same mold, so the difference should very small. Can you comment on the differences? Is the new Pacific the better racquet...
Wilson quality control sucks. My 3 blades 16x19 came in with very different specs. 15gramm between them in total weight and big difference in swingweight as well. It has been annoying for me try getting them to similar specs.
Wouldnt have bought those racquets, if I knew how different they...
Because the strings break after some hours.
My racquets dont become useless when getting get old (2 years+) - as long as the frame doesnt crack. They become a slightly different, softer feel, but there is no difference in power or accuracy.
wow. i have never seen that :shock:
what amg did there is illegal i would guess as she slowed down the balls by fluffing them.
nieminen only used 1 ball and was obviously not treating the ball, but the strings.
