Yeah i'd say funny too..!
I've played with it only once 'cause it has his signature on the handle and i don't want it to go away.
Anyway for what i understood it's a great racket,soft but great power and great feel,also really great spin(pattern 18x20)..it had almost finished alu+gut but they still worked better than any poly on mine.
The only cons IMO,is that maneuvrability is not that great,its sw is too high for my arm,but if you can handle it it's unbelieveble.
Wow, maybe some super string? lol. the weights kinda big for me, i like mine to be strung around 325 g. you plan on sellin that anytime sooon........:)
 
Its not a clone it was a head racquet painted to be a wilson. Djokovic gets custom made in austria head prestiges and they are painted to the wilson kblade they are the same mold except the kblade are made in china.

Where did you get that information? It's simply not correct. Novak's racquets come from the Wilson Pro Room.

Head is working HARD right now, to produce the racket just to the specs of Novak' s liking.... Novak is working very closely with Head.

^^You know that article on Ivan Lubicic and Head designers working hard together to make the racket he liked. it took several month, i heard.

I think that Wilson suits him better, but I guess that is his choice...
Which company can give Djokovic the most money; Wilson or Head? I'm guessing Wilson...

Why should it be any different for Djoko ??
It should be different for Djoko because he played with Head for many years, and his current Wilson racquet was based on his old Head frame. So as people have pointed out, probably all they would have to do is give him his existing old frame back. No effort needed.

Meanwhile, the development of Ljubicic's racquet was an effort to create a new frame that improved on Ivan's old Babolat. They had to create a new frame rather than just find an old one.

Oh yeah....and they're working hard to make to make a green / bio-degradable with soy technology racket for Novak. They'll work this into his custom design spec/PJ/string pattern 23/58 MG Prestige. This is from a very creditable source from Head.

You're an idiot.

Leonidas, it that really his outfit for RG 09? Not to sound like fashion police, but the shoes and shirt color are nowhere near each other.

Because Ljubs was using an actual Pure Drive, and when he hated what Head had made for him (a custom built Extreme Pro), they decided to change things up a bit. Novak is doing just fine as is, and is already using a Head-built frame, so all Head needs to do is just paint it.

Your continuous stream of misinformation and stupidity is giving me a headache. Why don't you just **** off to another board? We're sick of your nonsense.
 
PT630 is too old and there is no market for it, except for those hard core players who wants to be just like the pros. Once again, Novak will be using the MG prestige pro with PJ. and his racket will be Custom made with completely different specs, even the Stiffness will be different.
Fed, you are talking out of your ***, sorry, I have been using the PT630 since hmmmm 1995. Todays pros want to be just like ........ me:)

If it is too old why are all these top pros playing with PT630 Pj's made in austria then? Head tried and always failed to market the PT630 all along. they are called the iprestige MP, LM prestige MP, FXP prestige MP, MG prestige MP, etc.......When Head makes a true PT630 they fly off the shelf. Do not expect them to make such a high quality TWARON frame and sell it to cheapskate fickle players for MSRP $199 only to be sold for $159 at discounted prices.

The fact that novack switching from wilson to head is very telling. I laughed when i heard that wilson made a custom frame for him and he liked it. Even if wilson made an exact copy of his Head frame it will not be the same. You really need to hit with a PT630 or a PC 600 to know that we are talking about.
