so he actually switched from the super rd tour 90 (with insert pj here)???
I imagine that any of the pros using a pro-stock Prestige mid or midplus is actually using something that is similar to the "original" versions of those sticks (PC 600 or PT 630).
Llodra Wilson ProStaff 7.1 underneath the paint.
1998 or 1999 not sure.
saw rochus rochus using the POG longbody at the USO last year...so paintjob?
It's not the POG Longbody. He uses he Michael Chang Graphite Longbody 95 (came out in 1996) with he TripleThreat Graphite paintjob.
So Rochus uses Michael Chang signature painted to look like a Triple Threat while Michael Chang used a Prince Graphite OS painted to look like a Michael Chang signature....
the only thing better would be if Rochus used a MC signature painted to look like the old Prince Graphite.
The irony is not lost on me...
Rochus was here in Dallas recently and I got a good look at his sticks. I thought all along that he was playing with a POG (and maybe he does sometimes) but here, he was using a Prince Triple Threat Graphite OS. In the qualies, it was easy to see the braided "stuff" that Prince put at 10 and 2 on that model.
That Braided "Stuff" is just decals. He does not use oversize. It's the Michael Chang Graphite Midplus (95) under the paint.......
Before the paint job:
What was funny about the whole Longbody/XL/Stretch thing was when the racquets come out of the mold they are just cut to the desired length be it 27, 27.5, 28, 28.5, or 29 inches. There is no technology in it. Like how they carried on 17 years ago in the marketing.:shock:
hewitt used the rdis before the vcore, and before that he used the 90 with an rqis paintjob.
The XForce Lite is a platform racquet. Dlouhy has about 35 grams added to various positions on his frames. With strings and grip, his XForce Lite comes in around 320 grams.
