    Do they all use stock yonex racquets? Can anyone please tell me what they are using under the paint job?

    there are a lot of threads about what Hewitt's using this days. iirc, the latest was that he was using what it looks like he's using (he finally changed from an super rd 90 tour). I think last I heard stan is using a pj (over another vcore) and so is nalby (last I heard nalby was using an rdx I think underneath). I haven't heard anything about Monaco. hopefully someone who knows more than me will speak up.

    Have you a picture of the handle? Is there a leather grip?
    Thank you.

    Pics

    Thanks for the pictures.

    Funny: I was always told that Yonex sticks should always be strung with two pieces.

    We usually string rackets two-piece whenever the mains finish at the throat.

    However when a player specifically requests only two knots (one-piece), then we will always do what they wish.

    David asked for two knots and so his racket was strung one-piece, around the world, because the mains finish at the throat.

    Yes, the String is Luxilon Big Banger Original 16.

    The tension was 39.0 LBS.

    The dude broke more racquets than most of us will ever buy, do you really think he worries if the frames are strung 1piece vs the factory recommended 2piece. :)

    The 1piece allowed for more dramatic racquet snaps.

    Nice pictures..
    Looks like it's RDis 100MP, not the paint jobbed one.

    I am curious as to whether any of the pros who endorse the Vcore lines actually use them, or just use the PJ. I'm pretty sure both Wawrinka and Hewitt use PJs (at least that's the word around these forums, whether anyone has any real idea is another questions). No clue about Monaco.
