Does federer frame look thicker than normal on this picture or is it just my imagination?

It looks fatter because of an optical illusion, in the red K section towards his forehead you are looking at the inside of the frame and the face, you can't see where one ends and one begins. Look at the side away from his body, it looks normal.

Yes but you can see where the stringholes are placed, in the middle of the frame. And the distance between hole-end looks definitely larger than on his normal stick. Or are my eyes playing tricks with me...

Is the new Kfactor 18mm beam or a 17mm beam? Cause on TW its listed as 18mm beam.

Is fed using the 18mm beam?

i havent seen the kfactor, but the stock ncode i held up against a 17 mm, and eyeballin it, itd say its about a 17.5, maybe 18. I remember greg raven (dude with roger's actual racket) saying that it was 17.5 and that it was no different from the stock thickness, so i figure thats what it is. but yes it is a little bit thicker than ps 85

My god, the only reason I want Fed to retire and go bye bye is so that we can stop talking about his racquet specs.
