Discussion in 'Pros' Racquets and Gear' started by Federette33, Nov 14, 2017.
I heard there will be a new RF at French open 2018.
Anyone else have any information on this ?
I posted this interview around and at 3:40 seconds in, he does mention a new RF97. Hopefully its not just a reverse paint job or the red nCode paint job with white pws.
Ah, yes. The reverse black on black pj, aka black on black.
I think @NuBas means polarized gloss.
I hope it’s glossy. Not a fan of the velvet stuff.
The velvet finish was a production nightmare for Wilson. They are still dealing with product returns from some of the faulty batches.
They should release a Fed frame annually at this point. People will buy it regardless.
If released it would definitely just be a paint job. As well as Fed is playing no way he changes his racquet!!!
It's to be called the 'Rafa Basha'.
BTW OP where did you hear this from and can you provide any images or links?
Fed likes velvet, so it will be probably still velvet with even less emphasis on text . I just hope Fed picture will be removed.
Then the lighter weight version would be the 'Rafa Thrasha', as a thrash has more tip speed but less plough through than a bash?
Who would be playing with it at RG2018?
Yeah, apparently the only thing that material is resistant to is clay...
RF plays with a custom setup so if the racquet looks a little different in retail stock, does not matter since he plays with a completely different racquet then the retail racquet. His racquet is customized at the Wilson Pro Shop. He pays nothing for Wilson's racquet services including one day shipping and gets all his Wilson gear free; compliments of Wilson.
Is this a joke?
They're changing the butt cap from red to black and adding $50 to the price.
LOL this might actually be true. Either that or they might throw some gold in the paint but actually since they are trying to modernize things I hope they don't do like a Babolat Play sensor thing.. or did that already happen?
It may have help Rafa comeback to #1, so I almost certain RF probably not against it! RF by the way, is going great too, probably better then Rafa is right now, so...maybe he does not need the sensor thing after all?
As discussed for months before, he doesn't play a completely different racquet.
He plays the retail racquet with a custom grip.
Rafa will still beat him
Whilst currently afraid of playing Federer ?
It will have a new paintjob, sprayed by Suresh.
Nooo they gonna replace Roger's face with the Suresh tennis silhouette
Is the new frame going to be a wide body?
It will be a 29 inch longbody
Finally!! About time Wilson came to their senses; even 28" would be okay btw...
india uses the metric system doesn't it? Shouldn't that read 29 mm?
No, it would be 29 meters
