    I was just thinking about paintjobs and Prince frames. Is it more likely that pros using Prince really use the raquet they endorse? It seems that it would be difficult to get a good paintjob on a raquet with the o ports.

    yes most of the prince users do really use a (customized) version of the prince racquet they purport to use

    uhm yes it is true if you werent a noob you would know by now. one player here got a racket FROM Federer. Also priority one said it was a retail one hand selected for him for the weight, along with custom handle and buttcap, along with lead tape under the bumper guard.

    ^This.

    It has been confirmed many times now that Federer does use the retail [K]90 - there is no need for n00bs to say otherwise.

    OP, most pros will use a racket from the same brand as the brand they are sponsored by. A smaller amount use the actual racket that their paintjob belongs on. A lot of the rackets pros use are from the pro-rooms of their respective companies. Some also use older and discontinued frames. There are a few that use the racket they market though with Federer being the most notable example.

    Nalbandian uses an extended version of the racket available to the public.
