Alex Bolt

Spare me the “who is Alex Bolt” stuff and help me figure out what mold this is (third photo)…Seems like a little wider up in the top of the hoop to be a gravity, maybe an Extreme?
Good find, it looks like a Blade shape (even though it’s a Head).

Australian journey man player who plays left handed. When I last saw him it looked like he was using the Yonex AI paint job but changed. The Head frame could be one of the Gravity options that are available pro stock although on second glimpse there is a bit of Speed mould going on. He has beaten some high profile players particularly at the Australian Open.

Another company doing the isometric type shape? Apparently Tenx are also going to release a 97sq in isometric square shape.
Dr will this be a new line ? obviously new mold

I had dinner at Alex’s house the other night and he told me something very interesting about this frame that only the five people watching this thread would care about. Sorry.
More like I don’t want to tell you what a player has told me in confidence at a professional tournament where I was their in a stringing capacity.

hope dinner was good.

Such a tease :cry:
That was the point. "I know something you don't" gets a lot of folks really erect on these boards. I used to have access to things, I know the feeling. Babolast is a good example. And to the greatest extent the proliferation of conspiracy theorists in society today

Boom? Really?
Name's a shame...
I guess they're targeting the Blade crowd with this stick, and have the impression the typical Blade user is between 12-16 years old...
I mean, it's hard, no, actually impossible to come up with a better name for a tennis racquet than "Blade", but Boom is really - a tragedy.

Why make a line that’s so similar to the Gravity though?
I'm assuming it's just Gravity in "shape" / "sweetspot", but more targeted at Speed (Power) or Extreme (Spin).

Similar to how Prestige and Gravity are both supposed to be targeting "Control" players.
 
Haha oh man… with all the words to choose from they picked boom? Meh. Well at least Heads engineers have been making some nice feeling/playing frames lately. If something plays great I don’t really care if it’s called the Head Dingleberry Mcfiddlestick as long as the name isn’t blasted all over the racquet.

Having spoken to Alex at Nottingham 1 Challenger, it was interesting to hear his thought on this frame. I won't be disclosing it but I'm rather interested in it myself for sure.
I watched Alex Bolt at Nottingham challenger also in two of his matches, the first one outside it looked like a black head speed but looked like it had blue writing in. Cool looking racket, nicer than novaks black speed. Great battle with Aiden Mchugh, did you see that match?

If you hit big and hard the gravity is a bit clumsy on certain shots, it's great with a big wind up but if you want to step on to short ball say and generate pace quickly it's not happening easily with that frame. There's no way bolty was using a frame that big. Those guys don't need an enlarged sweetspot. They are on the money
