Prostocktennis dot com just posted Stef's 2019 Prostock Blade for sale.

Weight - 335 grams
Balance - 32.7 cm
SW - 359
Tension - 25/24kg

The SW doesn't seem right to me. But someone should pick this up

Interesting specs; if true, very polarized. BTW Stef uses a 2013 Blade Pro Stock under v7 paint, not an H22. Notice how this racket's beam goes from box-shaped in the throat to D-beam/rounded in the hoop. The H22 has a rounder head shape and box beam all around.

This doesn't seem to be a Blade 2013. It looks like a pro stock with all the weight added later on because those specs can’t be achieved on the retail version.
Anyway, that French Open loss was terrible. What a mug!

Even though it's a retail blade mold, it is almost definitely not a retail Blade layup. I have seen this time and time again with racquets that come out of the Wilson Pro Room where they use retail molds and then use a custom layup that is nothing like the retail one and plays so much nicer

Lead at 12 adds a lot more swingweght - the amount of spin stef gets is indicative of a polarised set up to me. I'm sure rafa is ballpark similar

I don't see how they can get that static, balance and swing-weight combo considering the original balance of the 2013 Blade....

Rafa has a lot of lead from 12 to 2 below the bumper and 5 grams in the handle. Tennispin has a video where he takes one of his signed rackets and replicates it.

I think those are really real
listen if they can copy every off the shelf racquet in China they could also copy racquets used by pros just by gving them the right paint to look convincing thereby making enormous profits of a 10$ piece of garbage.. Just like the Wilson factory is doing in fact, because who knows for sure that Tsitsipas has indeed different lay up? Its most likely an older off the shelf model which is repainted with his name on it.

No that’s nonsense. Prostock Tennis.commis 100% reliable as they have the connections to the players and are directly supplied by many of them…
