    I'm sure this has been covered, but just in case... Look at the crossbar in the throat and where the throat meets the handle, not to mention the grommets.

    The real NXG for comparison...

    yeah I notice what you mean, the crossbar's straight and the mid stems meet up on ferrero's racquet opposite from the off the shelf. Good eye.

    Yeah, he's not using the NXG. Just like many pros it's obvious to those who know he's using a paint job. Maybe he will make the switch maybe he won't. If he's not using the real NXG by the end of this year my guess is he'll switch frames and maybe even switch manufactures.

    No matter who he plays with, he's always going to use his POGLB.

    I have asked to my friend in Sergio Tacchini, they had an agreement just for grass season, cause Ferrero don't like tacchini grass shoes.

    Thats it !
