Discussion in 'Pros' Racquets and Gear' started by Buckethead, Mar 11, 2011.
I have been reading your threads and i am curious about these guys.
If you search for Tipsey's specs, there are numerous threads but I've never seen anything on the other two.
bucket, I'll try and get you the specs of Tipsarivec's frame tomorrow (he left one behind that was cracked and it is at the pro shop).
as for tension, I strung several of his frames throughout the tourney. He was stringing at 26/25 kg but did change a few times to a tighter tension. Stringing with technifibre black code 1.24.
as for Ivo and Berankis, I don't know cause I didn't handle Ivo's frame, and although I strung a few for Berankis, I don't remember. I know he was using a Yonex Poly, and requested two piece. Can't recall the tension.
Here is a photo of the Tipsy frame.
Right after the final:
Thanks, i'll be waiting.
You two look like brothers.
His racket has one of the best paints out there.
I really do like the paint on the new TF's. Its just too bad for me that the 325VO2 is so differnet from my old original 325's.
Was that the only lead on the frame that you could see was on the throat?
Youre a cool dude Drak thanks for posting.
And if you Sup down there just tell him to go ahead and buy a Bronco already. He is now texting pictures of random broncos. I think that sun down there is driving him crazy.
Drak, you are my hero. You seem to be really enjoying your job and I wish nothing but the best! Perhaps you can start a thread where you post up your pics/stories/pro gear knowledge from your stringing experiences (or is there one already)? That would be awesome read!
Bucket, here you go:
static weight is 363 grams:
swing weight is 338:
balance is 31 1/2??
hey hollywood! Hope all is well at the mid atlantic. I have to find sup first before I could give him your advice. he has turned into an absolute party animal, and I have been working like a madman, so haven't had time to hang out with him much.
as for the lead, he had lead inside the head of the frame (3 and 9 o'clock) , at the throat (seen in photos), and I believe some under the grip.
zidane, really enjoyed my time at the Delray. I will be starting a thread by the end of the week in the stringing section of the boards. have a cool video I want to share with you guys.
About freakin' time

Wanted to revive this to ask a question: What paint is on the frame? I can't tell, but am curious nonetheless.
