    I know that he has used a Yonex SRD Tour 90 for a long time. I think he started to use it when he was 14. Before that he did use a POG.

    I think Hewitt was using POG in US Open 1999. Next year, he was using Yonex frame

    I played against Hewitt during his junior days here in Adelaide and he DID use an oversize version of the POG. If you have vision of his first ATP tournament victory here in Adelaide you can see that he used that racquet.
