Anyone knows Stepanek's real stick these days?

Anyone knows what Stepanek's real stick under the paint job is these days? Obviously a pro-stock. Can you guys tell which Head mold is it from? Perhaps @vsbabolat can chip in. Many Thanks!!

I thought revpro is a mid 93in. I swear I read here awhile back he played with a PJ Radical MP pj at some point. But new throat doesn't look like a Rad Mp.
Its a Prestige Rev Pro with a custom drilled pattern (different from retail), and is customized by Bosworth

Looks a little bigger than 93". Frame looks a little wider, too. Obviously a different headguard, but kind of weird it would have an MP pj instead of Rev Pro.

Its like HEAD is tired and wants to get caught. Eh, we could paint Stepanek's 16x19 with pro or rev pro which would raise less suspicion but...

Right above the grip the current prestige has a bit different shape than previously. Copious lead at 3 & 9 as well.

I thought that Stepanek is using pro stock Radical MP 16x19 like Cilic and Dodig, TGK 231.3.
This is not 1st thread about his frame. I'm now bit confused. Also wound be surprised that Stepanek is colaborating with Bosworth ( he did in the past). But deff is not Prestige Rev Pro.

Correct me if I'm wrong: the inner bottom of the throat of the TGK 231.3 (Microgel Radical MP 16x19) has always looked very boxy with a simple U shape. Stepanek and Dodig's frames currently look different than that. Some more talk > Dodig racket



edit: and now that I look the throat grommets are not rev pro but more like a pro or mp, though that could just be due to custom drill.

I can say for sure it is a Prestige Rev Pro. Having strung his racket at IW, and also comparing it to Verdasco's Rev Pro, they are identical in size. Verdasco has the retail drill pattern, whereas Stepanek has a custom drill pattern.


I also want to point out that Stepanek's previous Prestige pj was paint as Head Graphene Prestige only, now MP or Pro or Rev Pro.

Could you say something about the specs of Verdascos rev pro?

The snake's racket also appears to have a more boxy beam. Which of the XT line has a boxier shape. Off memories, a couple of the XT have a more oval shape near the end of the throat.

The throat grommets might not be the Rev Pro grommets, but the rest of the grommet is the same as the retail Rev Pro.

*Side note: It is very possible his racket might be a 95 sq in, instead of a 93 sq in, for those who think it looks bigger. (I cant confirm) I'm saying this because I have a Graphene Radical MP in a 95 sq inch, not 100sq inch (Dimitrov's prototype), just something interesting I found out.

Yeah, I'm not saying what it is or isn't, just noting visual cues. If it is a custom pattern with different spacing in the throat that may call for different grommets.
