hey I was wondering if anyone had any information on gasquets racquet. it looks like a head liquidmetal instinct. thats about as much as i can guess. looking for information like 1) his grip that appears to be a standard leather with no overgrip? 2) racquet customization aka lead tape? 3)string brand gauge and tension?

sorry if this has already been discussed. if so my excuse is: "im new"
:)

Hmm... according his ATP profile, it's a Head Liquidmetal Prestige. Then again, according that, he's also wearing Adidas? :confused:

It's a Head Liquidmetal Instinct. I believe he uses Lexilon strings.

Yes he is using a real Head Lm Instinct with a head leathergrip and Luxilon Big Banger original @24kg -> 18pattern on hard ->16pattern he played on clay

But iam sure its customized for him,could be a little longer than normal too,hope that helps:)

Haha,its just interesting for me..

Ask me whou uses which string,is tell you that;) Its just a hobby...
But with the rackets its often hard,because the most of the atpguys play older models with the new paint on it.
But Richy plays a real instinct(modified) :wavey:

Here you got for example a "fake" Liquidmetal Prestige...
The rills on it are just painted,not real like on gasquet racket for example..
