No way he's really using this low powered racquet, what is he's racquet specs ?
Yeah, Harrison really uses the Pure Storm Limited.
How did he modified it ?
It's probably leaded up big time w/ some silicone in the handle.
where he puts the lead and how much ?
I know it has like 8 grommets at the throat. I saw that a few years ago.
I seem to remember he used a super heavy racquet.
Actually, Ryan recently switched to the Pure Storm Tour. Still tweaking exact customization.
Harrison uses a custom layup. We strung his frames last year at Delray, and Babolat didn't even have grommets for it. We were provided individual grommets for his racquet, which was all blacked out.
Here is link to thread:
Is is a lot harder to string the racket with individual grommets? Looks like you have to line up each one.
^^yes, it was a pain because you have to hold each one in place while tension is pulled so it doesn't mis-align.
I remember being a ballboy for him there and I saw that and thought "what the! Thats not normal!"
What ? Where is the Woofer tech ? This doesn't look like babolat to me. It looks like blacked out Wilson
Well, you're wrong.
Just ignore fedace. Trolling only. He's not really that dumb.
Fedace is now Nostradamus?
So did Harrison drill holes in a PST? Or is that frame made custom for him by Babolat?
Correct, he will be using a custom weighted PST to start 2013. Not sure on specs yet.
Are you even aloud to talk about custom specs???
Through USO '12, Ryan used a Babolat pro frame that copied the specs of the Wilson [K] Six.One 95, 18x20. After t the USO, he switched to a Bab pro frame 98 sq., 18x20. He has 10 grams of lead at 12 o'clock. Don't know any more of the specs.
any reason why Babolat made Ryan switch to Pure Storm Tour? I've noticed lately that a lot of players have moved to it
Vesnina, U. Radwanska, etc
Thanks for this. Makes total sense.
I used the PSLtd and it's an excellent racket. It's just sad that another pro left this line of fine rackets.
I love my PSLtd, reminds me of a Prestige with a much better handle
Except for the fact that 99.9% of customers at a tennis shop have no clue what specific model a player is using aside from the children, and they can only recognize the line. They can't tell a PD from a PD Roddick or a PS Tour from a PS Team or LTD. Furthermore 90% of the customers that come into a tennis shop don't know who Ryan Harrison is.
