    The last two pictures in the post, that's Verdasco's semi blacked out pj of his tfight 320 vo2 max pjs right or am I going crazy? Two posters in that thread are convinced it's the youtek prestige but the butt cap is a tecnifibre one (I'm pretty sure) and the white on the inside of the frame is where it is on the tfight, there is no white there on the prestige.

    Duh; these pictures are from a PHOTO SHOOT. He is not playing. They handed him a racket to hold for the picture. He probably didn't even bring his tennis gear with him, so they gave him a racket, probably one of Murrays JUST FOR THE PICTURE!!!!! Jeez, get a life.............all this conjecture means nothing.

    No it wasn't Murray his racket, it was a Tecnifibre TF Vo2 paintjob with Tecnifibre stencil on.

    The players used there own sticks. Murray used his actual frame, head could have easily made him use an of the shelf radical. On the videos the players are actually hitting balls of feeds.

    1. The screen capture is a distortion of the Tecnifiber logo on his butt-cap.

    2. He did use Yonex for a couple of Tournaments and won San Jose with it.

    3. He switched back to his Tecnifibre and then signed a contract with Dunlop. After signing with Dunlop he started to black-out the hoop of his frames. Has not yet actually used a Dunlop yet.

    I hope I answered all of your questions

    I have two (2) last remaining Verdasco's pro stock frames ...if you want his stick exactly as he is currently using it, I'll happily spray paint part of that frame in black like Fernando did ...LOL.

    cheers,
