Demovic...I think Buckethead is right, he is playing with the 98D.
I haven't seen Wawa on TV since the racquet switch. Has he also gone with Yonex apparel & shoes?
Is that lead tape at 9h (and 3h)? I always thought wawrinka uses lead tape at 12h.
cool. Would love to see. 95 looks like a nice stick. 98 with lead could be cool too.
Yes, it is, but it does illustrate why a company like Yonex is prepared to go after players. The kind of people who would buy a quite expensive player's frame like the V-Cores are exactly the kind of people who are influenced by this kind of marketing. Yonex are being pretty aggressive at local level, too, offering great packages for players and coaches at the moment.
He had CAP's on on his TGK so lead placement was a mystery.
Good that Head let that pusher(Tomic) go.....Radical power??? Radical pusher!
It looks like Wawrinka switched to 98D after trying 95Din India.
Great pic, must not like the yonex dampeners?
LOL, what happened to the top main string in that pic?
I think it is because he forgot to get it from Yonex during the tune-up.
That's lead tape at 3 and 9 right??
Are Nalby, tomic and stan all using the same frame?
What string is Tomic using?
IIRC, it's rpm blast
That can't be right..?
You are correct, I was talking about Stan, I didn't pay attention to his question
nice picture of tomic with yonex.
Are tomic and stan using pjed 95s? Yonex gurus what say you?
Ok from last nights viewing, bernie and stans rac def look smaller than nalbys...
This is exactly what I was thinking, there is no way those were 98's. I seriously thought they were 90-93. Especially weekend at Bernies!
Stan is deffo using the 95 and looking at the pics of Tomic the racket looks like its got less space from the frame to side mains than the 98 has, which is a touch rounder.
Both PJ's imo, it makes sense that Yonex have their main men on their best seller.
can someone confirm if Stan's using a 95 or 98? ... pretty sure it's hard to tell, but it would be nice to know lol ... vsbabolat?
you mean wayne ferreira?
wasn´t he playing with his old dunlops long after they were discontinued?
The large photo of Stan above shows the "groove" running all the way around the throat, which is a hallmark of the VCORE thing. Might be prostock VCORE 95 rather than paintjob mystery stick. Both VCORE 95 and 98 are quite narrrow in the head compared to other sticks of same headsize, but I agree with you that it's 95 in Stan's case.
Yeah, I was quite surprised to see that groove on Nalby's racket too, I thought he would stick with the hexagonal beam (rdx500mp wasnt it??). They must all be very impressed with these rackets.
The pro stock versions are the same retail racket just individually specced in the factory during the lay up process.
Still waiting for definitive evidence on what stan and bernie are using.
anybody have any idea on what shoes Wawrinka is using during the Aussie Open? they don't look like normal SHT 307s.
Yonex have a different code for their domestic market, confusing ehhh?
you guys are spot on ... Stan has to be using a 95. Check these out:
Great pics jstar! You convinced me.
nalby is most likely using a 28" rdis100mp (or earlier) paintjob.
comparing juan monaco's racquet to wawrinka's would be better..
why would it be better? they both have 98" head racquets so it wouldn't make much a difference who we compared it to. Stan's would look smaller on both occasions.
cuz nalbandian's racquet as shown in your picture doesn't look like monaco's even though they are advertised as using the same stick.
juan monaco's is much more isometric/less rounded on sides and at the top
i think wawrinka might be using something 95" but string colors and racquet angles can be deceiving too.
Yes, i believe that if i use the retail version of Yonex Vcore 98d, i will be able to play just like Wawrinka. Of course, i will have to change to 1-handed backhand first, goes without saying.
Definitely gonna wanna take that second hand off the racquet brosef.
Anyone got any Tomic pics?
the beam looks boxier on monaco's stick too
The plot thickens...surely there is a stringer out there who knows the truth.
Monacos looks like an old RDTi80 maybe... quasi square head and boxy beam as u say.
Sorry but as it has been writen already, Djokovic has been unconsistent for a while after switching, and on the other hand Berdych plaied an old Head Pro stock under the Dunlop PJ you are mentioning.
I can remember Tsonga also, moving like djokovic from the Wilson Blade to Cobra (PJ ?) and then aeropro. He took a while to get used.
I believe that at this level of play, everything is about consistency and perfect symbiosis with your gear, as these guys are looking at any time for the best shot !! (or almost). When you change gear, suddenly your FH drive lands 15cm longer than u expected it, or your topped BH crosscourt passing lands short, your dropshot doesn't feel the same at all or whatever.
Obviously gear is critical for these guys !
You can see the raised step on the inside of the throat. As far as I know the V core is the only edition to do this.
I think you're wrong there.
Both Berdych & Haas played with the Dunlop pro mold for several years. If I'm not mistaken, it's the mold for the Dunlop 300T today but VS Bab would know for sure.
You are correct sir.
Vs, any expert opinion on stan and bernards new sticks?
You got that right. It clearly is a vcore with that 3D beam throat.
Atomic, Yonex stringing room AO 12
Nice photos. They do look like the stock Vcore.
Flex Infinity strings? Does anyone know anything about it?
