Woodbridge had quite a number of racquets - Yonex and Wilson-, which were you referring to ?

Off the top of my head I can remember:

Yonex R-22/23
Yonex R-50
Yonex R-24
A few Wilson wide-body frames
Wilson Pro Staff Classic 6.1
Wilson Pro Staff ? (looked exactly like the Classic but had purple graphics)
Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 5.0 (not sure if it was the stretch or not)
Yonex model used only for 12 months before going back to the
Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 5.0
Wilson nPro Surge (since retirement)

All of those racquets were 'paint-free' but I'm not sure if he actually did use the nSix-One 95 or if that was a paint job. However, given the problems he had when he tried to switch away from the HPS 5.0 he might have been loath to make any changes, apart from cosmetics.

What a memory!

Woodbridge would have felt right at home in this forum.

I got Jonas Bjorkmans racquet from a friend. I think Jonas played with it a couple of years ago, but I'm sure that he is still playing with this racquet with first the ncode and now the K Factor paintjob. This is the Hyper Pro Staff. I'm not sure if this is a paintjob too, but it's possible. It may be the old Pro Staff 6.1?

Here is some info about the racquet:
length: 70 cm
weight (strung): 379 gram
balance (strung): 30.3 cm

It's a heavy racquet with a very head light balance.

Here are some pics too.

At least at some point, Bjorkman was using a Pro Staff Classic 6.1 Stretch.

That Yonex sandwiched in between the Wilsons is the RD Power 10 Long; Both he and Woodforde switched to Yonex right around Rios' and Hingis' simultaneous runs at world no. 1.
