A Hammer?! :shock: ... it's widely believed he's been using 1 of the old 6.1's under the pj for years (though ppl can't be certain exactly which 1)... I, myself, posted a pic of him as a junior playing the HPS 6.1.

He definitely is benefiting from the new blx technology, which increases power and control. He also has switched to a new generation co-poly that allows for more bite on the ball while increasing comfort. He really is reaping the benefits of these new technologies.

If you knew anything about racquets you would know you can't get more power and control, it's one or the other.

It was concluded that it was basically unprovable, however, there is a strong case for the HPS.

Unless you have Tsonga's magic racquet which has the best of both worlds! :P

I think you can see it at least easy at the shape of the head of the racket that it's definitely not a Pro Tour BLX.
But I don't understand why Wilson didn't gave him the BLX six-one 95 PJ... :confused:

Really?

Is Wilson that greedy to take cash from consumers showing no mercy?

Marketing, man. Without any pros "using it", how do they expect it to sell well? They already have plenty of pros using Six-One paintjobs.

Same reason Andy Murray's using a Head MG Prestige Pro with a Head Youtek Radical paintjob - they need some pro players to advertise the racquet, so naive youngsters will buy it, believing that Delpo/MurrayRedtard plays with it :twisted:

You'd have to be very naive to believe that Del Potro switched just like that...

For those who aren't convinced... just look at the grommet strip at the bridge on a Pro Tour vs DP frame...

Everyone can count to four, right?
DelPo frame - 4 "bulges" on the grommet strip...
Pro Tour - 3 "buldges"

if Delpo didnt win the US open i think he might be still using the six-one paintjob
