So when is your friend going to string it up and let you take it for a hit????
When I drug him,.... he wakes up to find the racquet with broken strings and the taste of jager on his breath. Not pretty.
^^^^ Sounds dangerous. Count me in.
Breakpoint, thanks for catching my typo! I meant the K90 DOES have the tapered throat, unlike the flat PS85. Meaning he did actually switch molds and is no longer using a painted PS85 and this is for certain.
I've got a piccie of this one (this model) when he was using it and was warming up in Sydney all those years ago, just lying on the ground, will see if I can dig up that photo. It wouldn't contradict anything written here by OP.
By crikey up-close Fed was just amazing with that thing!
The guy at my pro shop has the exact same racquet! Signed and all.
Shush! *whisper*.. .could be the same person. Send me an email.
the WORLD of SPORTS is a large place. *wink*
Pretty amazing huh
Nice, I want one. How can I get one? :wink:
the racquet does't worth much it's the leather grip with Roger's signature
It's definitely worth something even without Roger's signature because where else can you get a PS 6.0 85 with a HPS 6.0 95 Tour paintjob on it?
Was there ever a PS 95 Asian (lighter than SV or US standard version, which I think was 12.4)?
No amazing eyedropper here.
Nice pictures thanks for sharing.
^^^ I saw Roddick and Gasquet play a set on the practice courts at queens yesterday, Roddick looked pretty sharp. Granted sometimes his tactics are questionable.
Clearly a K90 under the paintjob.
LOL.. you trying to be an instigator. I was there.. its a PS85 customized.
Notice how it specifies that it's for grass.
Wow.. good catch. Perhaps thats why the head was soooo light!
Nice catch Hartzy.
absolutely outstanding thread!!!
I always wondered if people can give it recommendations or stars or something. Just a thought.
Also, Im tempted to ask him if i can borrow it for an hour to put it on an RDC machine. Now that would be something.
Now if we can get a current model.. that would be beyond awesome.
Me, I'd string it up and hit with it for giggles....but I'm not too bright. I have vintage guitars I play that I shouldn't, but nothing new compares so....
I like to play with my toys not hang stuff on walls.
Never quite understood the collector thing.....my bad I guess.
Anyway good work!
In order to play with the old Fed stick, you'll have to have the PONYTAIL OF DOOM!
Isn't the K90 pretty much a customized PS85 with a bigger head?
I doubt that he (TH) would let you do that.
i doubt Roddicj realluy knows what hes talking abour
he uses a Babolat for crying out loud
A TW poster.. of GOAT status.. asked me to make an offer to TH for the racquet.
TH wouldn't bite. Says he is going to frame it and display it in his store. So you better get over there and ask for a quick swing before it goes behind glass.
Usually the gear heads are pretty ****ty at tennis. I don't even know what my string tension is, and guess what? I don't need to because as long as it's vaguely tight I play the same.
because i said its not
how do u know what to tell the guy to string it at?? (wat do you say??? string it tight??)...believe me the top pros know exactly what they string their racquet at and with wat string or hire very expensive people to know....a lot of the top pros are gearheads/... they have to be... or hire very expensive gearheads to service them... it is important... and since us regular folk dont have a 100 grand to spend on a professional gearhead.... we do it ourselves. thanks
gotcha... you with all your 59 posts and a join date of last month have overlord authority to determine the outcome of such happenings
