Do any one know what racquet's pj would that racquet be, the new juice, or a new line?

That's one of the new Wilson's coming out in 2013. But I am sure he is still using the Kfactor 95. That is just a paint job as you pointed out.

I thought he used a euro wilson 6.1 classic stretch

In that last picture, you can even see the molded handle. Pretty neat

The paint says steam and 96 so it can be like a juice pro. They made the juice paintjob for him but it seems that he didnt like the stick, trying a new one or just a new paint job, who knows.

Really, I always thought he used the actual kfactor. What does he use?

That's what i was thinking. he probably is a really superstitious guy and the juice pj was too much for him so they created a juice-like (spec wise) steam with similar colorways to his kfactor.

The paintjob is for the Steam 96. It's a Steam model without the new super open string pattern hence no "S" in the name. IIRC there is also a Steam 99 without the "Spin Effect" tech.

Are your Delpo frames stenciled "Delpo" on the inside of the throat?

Awesome. On a side note I am interested in trying the new 99s. Read a little bit about it in the tennis gear article posted on this forum and it seems to have some interesting science behind it; not just bologna marketing schemes.

seems like they are letting him use the same racket that he's been using, but changing the paintjob.

So is this a confirmed stick set to release next year-- Steam 96? Or is it a custom paintjob for Delpo so he can have colors very similar to the K-Factor pj he's so fond of? It looks a lot like the Juice Pro mixed with the Steam in terms of cosmetics.

dmcb101
10-15-2012, 08:27 PM
Yes it is. The paint job does look somewhat similar to Del Po's stick but I doubt they made it just to mimic Del Po's racquet.

By the way the new Steam 99S racquet does produce insane amounts of topspin. Really incredible. Check out my review and Drakulie's review to understand more of what I am talking about. Glad to have Del Po's new PJ as he is my favorite player!

according to some news read few weeks ago, Delpo has just four rimanent raquets remained in K factor pj and has'n been able to find new ones.
That's why he definitely need to change gear.

Yeah I already knew about this. What I was saying is now he will be switching from his K-factor PJ to the new Steam 96/99/99s/105s PJ. Probably still the same stick.

the racket does have a 18x20 pattern.

Yep, Steam 96 - hit with one last week with a player of mine who is trying out new racquets for 2013. Nice racquet, based off the old Tour mold so I am told (which is odd as the Tour series were always 95's?). Really quite nice though, should tempt a few PD or Extreme users over to the Wilson side!

I saw the 2013 wilson frames last week and they look really good! The new blades is a serious beauty and the new Steamīs looks very much improved in the design, but the only change in color is the removal of yellow and they changed the dark blue to black.

Itīs gonna be very interesting trying the new 16/19 Blade and the Steam 99S

it is the new prostaff line for 2013. Delpo is looking for new rackets because his recurring wrist problems. He wants something with better vibration dampening.

Thanks Ash! Wow I'm really excited to try it. The pj isn't half bad and the specs look promising.

It says "Steam" but the PWS area looks like is old K95, and the throat area looks like the Juice...weird.

So it looks to me like del po will be staying with his K Factor PJ instead of switching to the Steam 96 PJ. What ever happened with that?

he doesn't get any extra money since he's using an old PJ (theyd probably pay more if he used current PJ).

And he's obviously just superstitious, using his last remaining frames until theyre cooked.

Yeah I think it is just a mental thing. I wonder when he will switch though because I heard he is down to like 3-4 frames.
