    Why do they have different colors of the W in the hoop and the text and recomended strings are slightly different
    Did they make a couple runs of this? What am I missing here?
    Red rubberband dampner one is 9/10 condition and has silver around the W in the hoop and recomends Sensation string and cusion aire grip. 4 1/2 grip

    natural rubberband dampner one is 6/10 condition, has yellow in the hoop and reccomends NXT and gel grip? This is a 4 3/8 grip

    Got the exact same racket in 18x20...They changed the W cosmetics at 2 and 10 o 'clock from grey/silver to yellow to make the Wilson logo more noticeable...Sweet sticks
