Did the data file shift from lb to kg for those listings in the 30's, or was he actually playing with really low tensions?

And his years with Kneissl were what? Chopped liver? He only won Miami and reached several other semis and finals with the Reach Machine...

These are likely the same blacked-out Pro Tour 280s he used at the end of his ATP career, after his deal with Kneissl had expired.
Or he could be play testing a new as yet to be released Prestige MP. Muster and Sanchez were supposedly responsible for the Pro Tour 630. As both had been using the Prestige Pro 600 and were the ones that helped HEAD develop the Pro Tour 630 and teh first guys to switch to it.

His stringer told me that he's now playin with his old Head stick. He added just "some" weight: about 70 gramms! :shock:
He changed his string to. From RPM Blast back to the old Iso-Speed...

I might get some more information in the next few days.

^^^^^Thanks for the link!

Muster is definitely using freshly minted Kennelbach Specials! Wonder why they are black with just HEAD on the side in white......Hmmm.........

He wants to play Munich, Stuttgart and Hamburg, if he is given a WC! And I think he is not talking about a quali-WC, but a main draw-WC. :shock:
