    Does Nalbandian actually play with the RDX 500 MP, or is it just an older Yonex model with a paint job!??

    I don't think we've come to a general conclusion yet. I believe it's an older model though or something....

    No, it is an actual RDX 500. It's custom lengthened and weighted. Too many others, they just do not know...

    So Tom, how much does it weigh? And I'm guessing it's 28 inches then right?

    I'm waiting for someone to suggest he's still using the Prince with a paintjob.

    The head looked bigger than 98 to me, but Thomas knows what the straight dope is, I'm sure. We had come to the conclusion it was an rd70 oversize. oh well.

    I like that. If he was using a normal shaped racquet from another company no doubt people would still say it was a paint-job but in this case there are no grounds for it.

    I feel as if I should retract my comments above. David Nalbandian really is still, repeat still, using a POG. His current 'Yonex' racquet is really a POG painted to look like a Yonex with an isometric headshape and a much larger head. Those painters are sure good at painting optical illusions.

    Yes, and from certain angles you can see it is in fact Martina Navratilova, not David!

    But - one must know what he got to know to reveal that plot!

    Few of us can!

    there is no way the racquet is bigger than 98, its looks just about 98 , and maybe he is using a costomized racquet
