I don't know if there are any previous threads on this. Is this an iPrestige?
I'd say a PT630 with iPrestige CAPs.
I think its an iprestige
Did he previously use a PT630?
What kind of butt cap is that?
Pro Tour 630. The guys from Priority 1 custom mold the pallet for Soderling.
What's the headsize of the PT630? Is that a midsize?
Oh no you didn't...What's the color in a white horse?
The answer to your question is within your question. The head size is 630 sq. cm. (which is close to 98 sq. in.) That would make it a midplus racquet.
Robin uses a PT630 with i.Prestige grommets. The pallet is custom made by Priority 1 and is made from latex and feels like leather. It is really big down at the butt cap. He has two layers of lead tape from 8 to 4 under the cap grommets. He strings it with alu power.
Thanks. Has he had that setup for a long time?
cough.........thank you..... thank you........ I will be taking signatures in a minute
The frame is a PT57A which is code name for PT630, the PT630 does not have the tapered CAP which is found on the iprestige MP
BTW I have my buttcaps on my PT630 tapered like Sod to one side as well for my pinky, but not as much as Kaffy that buttcap was a door nob
If Fed is thinking of switching this is the frame he should switch to if he wants to be Nadal, just like Soderling did and Simon
Hey man don't forget about Razzano who is still alive in the women's draw who also uses the Pro Tour 630.
I had no idea his racquet was capped
Where's his buttcap?
his handle is definitely square shaped, i guess he doesnt like the rectangular head handles...like me.
Here are the specs of his racquet taken by Greg Raven at Indian Wells :
^^^ with all due respect for greg raven, it is not a MG radical MP for obvious reasons,
Mr. Raven, as far as I know, only refers to the cosmetic visible and is just concerned with giving the specs of the frame. Same thing with Kuznetsova's frame among others on that page.
I still cant believe hes only 24! he looks so much older.
Yes. I ask him and he said that he played with it for as long as he can remember. He used it before he went pro.
Sorry to ruin it for you, but the handle has the shape of a head handle. I practice with him sometimes when he is in Sweden and he gave me one of his racquets to try out. It is quite big, like a 4.5 (europe).
does he? i think he looks his age .. have you heard his voice? its light and like a teenagers in a way
wow, you hit with him ?? what is his shots like .. super heavy, right ?
My ranking is 740 in the world so when Söderling is home sometimes his coach sends me a text message and asks if I want to practice.
Yeah, they are heavy, but not suprisingly heavy. The most amazing thing is when you play him he plays so fast and takes the ball so early with his backhand and still hits a heavy ball.
18x20 stringbed. anyone know what strings?
Luxilon ALU Power 1.25
sorry, but what is an i.prestige?
Thanks for the info and the anecdotes. Just one question, if I use the same setup, could I also beat Nadal on clay? :grin:
What sort of tension does he use with that Luxilon string?
The swingweight is 384, but where is the portable crane to move that sucka'?
I don't think there is any way to analyze Soderling's racquet because Soderling has Leukemia.
. . . You're welcome.
Hey, I dont care if you use it or not.
When Robin is in Sweden I practice with him sometimes and that is why I know what he plays with. No copycat here...
Hey Patrik, I checked you out at atp website (actually noticed this a while back) you moved up to 739, with career winnings of $5g...pretty cool...actually awesome
Let me ask, does the Soderling racq you have come with the PT57A code inside the throat? I do have a FXP pj'ed Gilles Simon PT57A, and Soderling racquet appears to be very similar (except that hidden lead tape is at 10-2 on Simon's racq and it is slightly long)
what is his full name i would like to see his atp page
why do you ask me ask the owner of the page
Rosen , maybe you even know what kind of strings, grips, vibradampner, bag, clothes, underwear, natural hair color etc that Komlavi Loglo use as well!?
Bara skojjar ;-)
Hahaha... Den där killen som frågade efter det var ju inte riktigt frisk. Träffade Loglo i Spanien när jag var där förra året så jag kommer ihåg vad han lirade med men det räckte tydligen inte för killen.
Sorry about the Swedish guys!
Here you go. I hope it will not be delete. There is no picture and almost no info at all.
Hey Rosen, I don't mean to hijack this thread, but what racquet and strings do you use?
I use a kBlade Tour with leather grip and tourna and some lead tape at the top of the racket. String it with Iso-Speed Baseline Speed at 55 lbs. But I am switching racquets so now I am using a Prestige Pro instead. Still do not know if am going to stay with it. I will try the 4D Tour and the new Storm Tour when it will be released.
YOU are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go with the Prestige Pro Rosen, it will move you in the top 100 with Big Banger Rought @ 66 by 62! When this happens give me a call I would like to be your coach and follow you in the tour , good luck!
possibly the right racquet but wrong tension. suggest starting at 55/59 and go from there.
Maybe, I do not know. But no Big Banger for me, it is to expensive. I break to many strings and earn to little on the Future tour to play with them.
suggest Pro Supex Big Ace 1.22 mains and syn gut crosses at 56/58 or 55/57 if u like it softer. lasts long, comfortable tho strings move a bit after broke in. plays better broke in for me.
Separate names with a comma.
