The ridges are gone! What mold is this?
The ridges haven't been on his racket for a while but it's still the same mold.
Almost seems like it's a box-beam design...... so unlike the retail version........
...Because he's still using the Instinct pj it just doesn't have ridges.
Is this a new paint scheme from Head? I've never seen a Head model painted like that before.
Yep. That's it!
Nope. Been out over a year now. It's the paintjob of the Head Extreme Pro2.0
Call me crazy, but I thought he always uses yellow Extreme PJ, not Instinct.
Berdych and Sugarpova play with Instinct PJ.
Yes he has used the paint of whatever Extreme was current, one now Extreme Pro 2.0 He has used the Pj going back to extreme Microgel series. Now it appears using a customized frame with PJ affect
Not sure if troll but...
The OP meant that Gasquet is no longer using the LiquidMetal Instinct racket painted to look like the Head Extreme Pro 2.0.
No I was really confused. The OP explicitly mentioned PJ:
"Gasquet no longer using the LM Instinct pj".
And Gasquet hasn't been using anything but Extreme PJs for a long time now.
It's not customized per se. It's the old LM Instinct tour mold without the ridges.
Well, what does customized mean, for me ANY alteration from stock, I had the instinct yrs ago gold with ridges and the 1/2 inch longer was supposedly his rkt, so if you remove the ridges you have altered/ customized the rkt, I doubt he just removed the ridges without head altering/ customizing other aspects.
It's just the LM Instinct with out the LM ridges. HEAD had that mold with the MG Instinct and the original YT Instinct. So the mold was not customized. They have lots of players still using that mold.
The racquet in the picture has 16 mains and it can't be LM or MG or YT instincts..
LM Instincts Tour XL
Mold and string patterns are two different things. You can have rackets that use the same mold but have different string patterns. The LM Instinct Tour XL is 16x19 string pattern.
I didn't know that LM Instinct Tour XL has 16 mains. Sorry!
Separate names with a comma.
