    Da vinci sounds nice. Maybe he makes paintings with subliminal messages hidden in them, with racquet specifications of the racquet of jesus

    In other words, no-one knows.

    Today i watched the final of Futures tournament, and one of the finalists got frustrated and broke his LM prestige md. Watching the match, i had suspicion that it might be a PJ. After the match i asked the player's father to look at the raquet and my suspinions prove out. I said to the player's father that it is the PJ, he just smiled and said that it is realy the PJ. Then i asked the player what's inside and he said that it is the first prestige. i asked if its prestige classic and he proved that. his father also added that you can get the PJ if you have the sponsorship, he also refused to give me that broken raquet and explained that each player has special numbers on the raquets and when the raquet is broken they have to return it to head representative.

    Racquets are painted in factories where they're made, of course. These days, that would be in China. Are you asking if there is a single company that does all the painting? No, I've been told.

    ther was some espn story on paintjobs, and they said that graphic designers working for the the racquet company, will design a new paintjob for an old racquet that looks as close as possible to the pj on the new racquets. they didnt go into much detail on how its done.
