Watched recently his mixed final playing and remind (it was discussed here before) that he uses unique racquet for a pro tour players. At the end of match i notice he carry Zus bag (i got the same :) ), so i know for sure what racquets he uses. Anybody know his specs?

It is very good quality custom made racquets produce by Sven Groth, former business partner of Paul Angell (they made together Vantage racquets), after they split Paul continued to produced Angell racquets (similar to Vantage) and Sven moved to US and started Zus racquet company. If i'm not wrong Paul blamed him with stealing press forms and/or technology, but it is their business. Anyway, both Angell and Zus racquets are great ones, custom made to your specs (Zus frame is a little different to Angell). I highly recommend you these racquets, especially Angell (got many of them, got only one Zus, did not play much with it yet).

I asked around many times but never got a response. Do Angell rackets have a bunch of metal in the handle at around 10cm or is the handle completely weighed up with silicone? Thanks.

I think if you're in US you can contact Sven, maybe find in facebook. Zus has dealer in Italy.
Considering Angell racquets there are three holes in the handle making for filling with some weights for customizating different weight and balance.
