I know Monfils usually plays with the Head MicroGel Prestige, but he has a new racquet.

Does anyone know what it is?

I have no clue of these things, I just know he had only one prototype with him in Vienna and still played the whole tournament with that one racquet because he was so enthusiastic about it and wanted to test it in matches.

I guess it's not on sale yet, the press release says it will be available in France in February 2009:

paintjob = new prince rebel 95. Wether he is actually using that mold right now in Paris is though to tell. I agree with the people who say the beam looks too thick. So could still be his old head painted like a prince. Impossible to tell wether that thing has holes in it.
The black out he used prior however definetely had big holes in it. So i don't think it's that one he's using right now.

Not that it matters a lot. Pro's get there frames costum made anyway. But it would be nice to know if the things has holes it and isn't just a paintjob of his old head (for now). Possible scenario is that he liked the prince black out he tested and now prince is making that racket for him, but for the time being he is using his old head with a paintjob.
