skeezer Says:

16 x 19? Good lookin stick. Glad he got over the hump and finally adjusted to it. Hope it serves him well.


SG1 Says:

340g unstrung. Wow! That thing’s like sledgehammer. I like a racket with some weight to it but 340 g seems awfully hefty. But, it works for Federer and that’s all that matters.


SG1 Says:

Pretty open pattern for a advanced player. I expect pros to be going with the more control oriented 18 x 20 or something like that.
