    I once saw a thread that Nadal painted on the cortex. But that was whee the stick first came out. it was not even on the market yet. Does he use cortex now?

    Rafael Nadal uses a paint-jobbed Aero Pro Drive Original.
    The cortex is painted on.

    no, cortex is painted on. there was a thread with a pic of it right after it was strung, i can't recall which tournament it was at, but it was this year. he still uses the original, with a paintjob.

    but dude, you're making alot of threads asking the same questions..

    It was definitely painted on at first.... But that was because
    I believe was not yet on the market or just came on.


    But now that its been out for a while Im not sure what he does now.

    But he definitely had a painted on cortex in the beginning.

    A) he didnt use cortex when it first came out because I dont think it was on the market, but Im not sure about right now.

    b) its not a "technology" but merely a vibration dampener. Unlike the [k]factor which stand for [k]rap.

    C) how many threads were there about what racquet does fed use? Why didnt that bother you? The answer is : Fed lost face it

    D) Did I forget to mention that Fed lost?

    Dude,

    I am not being "defensive" rather you are being "offensive". Who asked you to click on this post. Has anyone been talking to you?

    You just came in here and attacked without any provocation. If you dont like this thread just dont click on it.

    Again....Im sorry that Federer lost.....I really do feel your pain. But unprovoked attacks like this must stop. Just try and learn to live with the pain and see a therapist.

    Not at all. Rather when Nadal first used the stick it was not yet available to the public. Im not sure that he had time to customize all his sticks to his specifications so they just went with a paint job instead.

    So I am just wondering is he still using the paintjob now that the cortex version is out on the market? Why does this upset you so?

    His is Rafa practicing in Canada 2008. Still no Cortex.

    I don't understand why it is so hard for you to understand or believe that Rafa has a paint job.

    meaning its a paint job or its cortex? I really dont know. As I look at the pic I think the cortx may just be painted on.
