    It looks like a Prince with at least 110 sq.in. And it is super thick. Black finish.

    More info:

    It is either black or very dark green. It has a teardrop head and it says "Extender" onn the shaft.

    Its the one with a sweet spot that takes up the entire string bed of the racket. ;)

    It is called a modern sweetspot.

    Oscar Wegner uses an extended length, 115+ sq inch racquet with the sweetspot extending down towards the handle.

    He says pros hit low on the stringbed to hit topspin. Using a big racquet like this can help because the lower half of the string bed is huge.

    Oscar frame is a teardrop shape Prince 26 or 28 mm, at the tip, but the strings do extend closer to the handle.
    I found that it had more power near the tip.From some of the videos, his model also has the staggered stringbed similar to the Prince Vortex.
    There were other models in the Extender line.

    He uses the one which is best for pulling back as you hit the ball, and also for swinging really slowly until just before contact and then accelerating just at contact. :p

    Short strokes, thick beam, not the frame type popular on this forum.
