    I've heard this thing on the old post that Srichiphan was using Graphite II. I wonder if this is true, but I think Rafter used Graphite II also. The most famous one that used Graphite II was Albert Costa, but his was a Longbody.

    SpecialK was the true GII aficianado, but I recall a few famous users were Patrick Rafter and Jana Novotna (at least for a bit). Countless doubles players used this stick. I recall our Prince rep used to be hounded by a few WTA players for old stock a few years after it was retired, said he really got tired of it. Maybe that played into the "rerun" around '00 which found its way to an online retailer or two.

    Doesn't Spadea use the G2 OS.Scrichiphan does not use a G2, but most likely the RD Ti70 long with the RD Ti-80 painjob.

    I think Spadea uses the POGOStick according to my stringer who strung at Scottsdale this year. One way to check the cross-bar stabilizer. Graphite II has a stablizer that cruves up when it touches the shaft like the Chang(Grahpite and Ti), Precision Graphite, TT Graphite, and NXG.
