What's the racket underneath this PJ that a lot of the girls are using? Can't be a Juice, the head shape is different, throat area looks more squared off and no PWS.
Anyone know?

Azarenka uses the same racquet. Wilson has copied the LM Instinct. Wilson has also copied the Prestige MP with many many players using it with Blade paint jobs.

I wouldn't mind that. Went skiing yesterday, was great. Snowing again right now, lots of snow everywhere. Bought new ski boots, goggles, pants etc so I want to take full advantage of this beautiful weather :-D

It is actually a BLX Juice but I don't know which one it is. I'm not a Wilson guy, so I don't follow their products very much.

You guys are most likely right, it does look like a LM Instinct mold. How come Wilson is copying Head frames for players now? No one liking the pro sticks from them or did a bunch of Head guys move over to Wilson and wanted similar?

so wilson players use another manufacturers stick, or did wilson buy the mould or something from head?

Could the first one (yellow visor) be a Babolat Aero?

I am in Seoul, though, on my way to Shanghai.
Did you receive the package?

The H19 is a "copy" of the pt630 mold, so...
When Azarenka moved to wilson, they made her the exact copy of what she used minus the ridges...

19x18 strings pattern. Almost sure it is LM Instinct just painted like Juice. Same as in Azarenka case. I doubt that it is really Wilson mold.
