What racquet does he really use? Thanks
If you search you will be rewarded by some photos of his actual stick but long story short its pt57A
Gulbis uses PT57E
So - it only Head's top-end players like Andy Murray and Svetlana Kusnetsova(?) who actually get their names stamped on their frames? Everyone else just gets the model #?
I bet they have their name on them or some kind of indentifier. It would be bad to mix them up.
Sorry I was speaking from my memory yes pt57e not sure why I remembered a was it pt57a before? I rememeber seeing a pictures of a broken pt57 a hmmmm my mind must be playing tricks on me...
Btw is that lead I see under turna grip?
Looks like Microgel prestige pro.......??
yes it is an E you can tell by the distance area above the grip and below the bottom of the V throat.
the material above the grip sure looks like a beefed up area al john cauthen
No, That is the Original White HEAD Grip. I believe it is called Hydrosorb Grip.
10-4 pictures sure can deceive...
Did you notice his what he had for a string setup, i see the tension is labeled 28k/27k
How did you get that racquet?
If I remember correctly, leelord attended the US clay court champs in Houston. Gulbis snapped his stick when he got mad and gave it to Leelord.
Is that a 93 or 98 sq inch head? In other words is it shaped more like the mid or mid-plus versions?
ha yep, well he knew me 'n my moroccan friend as he had the guts to ask him if he wanted to hit! (a few days earlier) gulbis replied "well i've already hit today, but i'll hit tomorrow after my doubles match". We never held him up to that though, but yah, another kid grabbed the cracked racket and looked at it and i thought....here's my chance to get it so after gulbis finished his practice session that day i asked him to sign it and he did. Actually a friend of mine on here did some swingweight research on the stick @tw, i have it saved somewhere, i'll add to this thread...thanks ev1
Is it possible to lift bumperguard a little bit and see how long is this lead tape ?
It looks that it goes at least to the fifth cross string, but is it even longer?
If you would find this SW, it would be great..
No, it's an old white grip that HEAD put on their old rackets. It just looks like lead because it's grimey and slimy from him sweating...
Exactly, that's what it is supposed to look like...
