All I'm saying is, don't let @gino hear this blasphemy.
shoot, im gonna actually get one
Great thread on Goffin.
This guy is just amazing. the new Ferrer.
under 6 ft, and slaying everyone in sight.
forgive me for not reading every single post made in this thread.
but lets just try and understand what equipment he is using.
so question 1.. is he using a full bed of Alu? or is there gut mains. because there are some pics where it looks like u can see some fraying of the mains.. but that may be an optical illusion.
question 2. what grip size is he using. .
and q 3. weight and balance. do we think hes using 3pt hl 11.3 oz stock specs. ?? thanks
1) Full Alu, 22/21 kg, I've met him at a meet and greet with Q&A at the Luxilon Headquarters (Belgium).
2) No clue
3) Stock blade without customising.
Thanks for that. Wild stuff that it’s stock weight.
Indeed, he is the only one in the ATP top 100, while we have one of the best customisationers in the world in Belgium (DC Customising).
Dieter Calle? Can't imagine Goffin never tried to adjust his specs though. Must have a good reason for not changing them
Without measured specs it makes me doubt he plays a stock frame, after all what version is he playing stock?
A nBlade at around 340sw? A BLX around 335sw? A KBlade around 325sw? One from Wilson's Pro Room that hand picked at some other spec?
Plenty others in the top 100 have been claimed to play a unmodified frame and most of them I have my doubts about, but no evidence.
That’s a good point. Not that I doubt any posters here saying he’s Stick. But let’s get the measurements
Indeed Dieter Calle ;-).
It is true, Dieter told me, David's coach thinks it's nonsense and not important..
Any updates on which stock blade he's using?
he is using that one. but added lead at 3 and 9 oclock
There is nothing added to his racquets..
There is nothing added to his racquets.. he plays uncustomised racquets.
His racquet is not current retail blade faik
Um he REALLY doesn’t have any weight added to his racquet? That’s kinda hard to grasp.
And what exactly is he using? H22?
It’s a Kblade, with a synthetic [K]ontrol grip
Any idea if that is at retail specs or perhaps his prostock comes from Wilson differently.
no clue I just saw a thread a while ago about it when someone said it had a k factor grip, and then I saw pictures of him using a blade:
Oh boy, he used to be even skinnier
You're replying to FEDACE. It is like replying to a 3-year-old
I have a 3-year-old, at least he can accurately repeat things that I tell him to others
Fedace cant do that yet
