You do realize that the Gravity pro and IG Speed layups May be or are different. Therefore, I am almost certain that he is not using the retail stick.Tw has confirmed Zverev actually uses the Gravity Pro. This makes sense as it is the same mold as the IG Speed which he has been reported to have used before.
I did not notice this difference when I help them side by side. Will look more closely next time.I think there is some confusion here about the Gravity Pro and IG Speed 18x20 mold being the same. They are not the same. Similar, but not same.
A guy who plays at the same club as me owns the IG Speed 18x20 and is demoing the Gravity Pro. Did not take pictures on court but I saw myself that the mold is slightly different, specifically the area joining the hoop with the bridge/throat. Both these racquets have different beam widths too, as measured by TW, so mold can not be the same. I also posted a couple of pictures of both in 'TW confirms Sasha Zverev is using Gravity' thread here in the Pros Gear section.
Now that doesn't mean Sasha is playing retail/stock version and isn't getting special layup etc for his Gravity Pro. But just that the Gravity Pro mold isn't exactly the same as IG Speed 18x20 so if Zverev is playing Gravity Pro, he indeed switched from his IG Speed 18x20.
Youtek IG Speed was not 20mm all around. TW measured it and beam width was 21/20/21. When they measured Gravity that was 20/20/20 so beam width isn't same for both.Both are 20mm.
TGK263 and TGK344 are same beam hight, 20mm. Believe me. TW is not infallibleYoutek IG Speed was not 20mm all around. TW measured it and beam width was 21/20/21. When they measured Gravity that was 20/20/20 so beam width isn't same for both.

Yes. Tip/Head/Shaft. That is beam width for top of racquet, widest part of hoop and shaft width respectively. These are 21mm/20mm/21mm for retail version of Youtek IG Speed 18x20. For Gravity these specs are 20mm/20mm/20mmVery similar but beam hight is definitely the same.
Have you also seen both molds? I did.Yes. Tip/Head/Shaft. That is beam width for top of racquet, widest part of hoop and shaft width respectively. These are 21mm/20mm/21mm for retail version of Youtek IG Speed 18x20. For Gravity these specs are 20mm/20mm/20mm
Mold is not the same but yes, similar (can look up and see circled part in pictures). I have seen both first hand. They both have similar beam width (or as you are saying "height") for hoop. But shaft and tip are not same width.
Ok, I will go with TW specs since they use same spec calculating methods all across the board and they measured different for both. And since molds are different there is a very good possibility that beam width is different for both as well.20mm constant beam. Both. But no worries if you think to know better.
I shouldnt joke since i have used wilson most of my life, but If the QC on their racquet molds was as bad as the QC on their racquets, then every single racquet might be literally unique! Different shapes, different beam widths, different drill patterns......
