    I also want to know with what other racquet, can be the 95D compared to.

    Which one is more similar to the Head Prestige Pro? The 95D, or the 97D?

    Very nice racquet. Has a huge sweetspot, but maybe a tad light and head heavy for me. I prefer a slightly heavier and more headlight racquet, but that could be fixed with lead tape. The flex felt fine to me, not too stiff. It swung pretty easily, too. The head just seemed and felt really big to me so that was a turn-off as I'm used to smaller headed frames.

    The feeling is crisp, like a Head Prestige MP/Pro, or it's like that soft-mushy feeling that a dampener gives, like a Babolat Pure Drive?

    Does it haves a good touch for drop shots, or the feeling is muted?

    As I recall, it was more crisp than mushy, but not stiff feeling.

    What is Wawrinka's actual (not the paintjob) racquet, and it's specs - headsize and weight. Anyone know?

    That Topic has already been discussed and I remember several users with good reputation gave you the answer that Wawrinka uses the 95D.

    At least breakpoint should have known as he appears in every second topic I read....
    But he's obviously busy defending outdated Wilson 90s or judging the size of a tennis racket by watching a picture. Objects on photos seem to be bigger or smaller as they are in reality depending on angle and way more things I don't have much clue of.

    Here you go again:

    First pic:
    Yonex 95D with 6 strings through the black bumper guard.

    Wawrinka using paintjob at Wimbledon. Take a look at the bumper guard with also 6 strings going through.

    Now a pic of the 89t with 8 strings going through the bumper guard.

    And finally it's neither a 97t as there are also 8 strings going through the bumper guard.

    Are you serious?!
    I have a 95D since several months and its shape looks just like Wawrinkas racket.

    The 89t instead is way more rounded at the sides.
