Discussion in 'Pros' Racquets and Gear' started by atran3, Apr 12, 2014.
Not sure what you are saying... What is real stuff?
Fedace is saying that Waw's racquet is the same as the Tour G
I see. Might me good to have a look here:
and compare to picture 5 here https://plus.google.com/photos/111778561398581771386/albums/6006965116448929905?authkey=CIv2kprN2eSkTw
Count the strings going through the grommets in the throat area...
Fedace, I know you have a hard time seeing but Stan uses the 95D kin Tour G paint job and with nice glossy clear coat over the orange paint. The retail paint is matte.
See,, you can clearly see from the picture above that what the Rep was talking about was true. These vsbabolat and spintolose in this thread are soooo obsessed with pro rackets because they want to pretend like they are really pros they worship when they are playing,,,,they can't see the truth even when the Rep is telling the truth.
I think you have vision problems. Its clearly the 95D. I'm not obsessed with anything. I'm just trying to get the truth out there of what is going on.
you are like that pesky little fly that you try to silence with the fly swatter but never seem to hit.
That is some fine trolling
Fedace needs to be banned.
Nostradamus, are you going to go whine and cry to TW staff now since 10 people pointed out who you really are?! Instead of threatening, TW should see the obvious in this case, many others do.
Hey doc I cannot imagine that TW does not know that fed ace is Nostradamus. I would not be surprised if he or she is on TW payroll...
I received a "warning" from TW for directly pointing out who this is in one of the previous posts (that was deleted). I could not believe it.
I wonder if the very same TW employee who gave you the warning is the one using Nostradamus account...hmm conspiracy theory hahaha
I'm not one usually for imagining because I use the same racquet as a certain pro the racquet will help me play any better like him, however, in the case of Stan, I'll happily go along with the delusion.
Would appreciate if this thread returned to topic.
haha, one can always dream, right? Once my arm is ok again I will take the Stan-stick out for a few hits...I will let you know, if my backhand all of a sudden turned into a monster-down-the-line kind-a-thing or not...probably not ;-)
and yes, back to topic! thanks.
@frinton: have you tried to measure the SW with the TW procedure ?
Sorry, I couldn't do it yet, can barely hold a racket this days, even less swing it :-(
As soon as I can, I will try!
The Procedure he's referring to does not require you to swing the racket
someone knows something about his new RED string?
edit: looks like he used the red string only for training..now against thiem hes with his rpm.
Saw a closeup of his racquet during his match today at Italian open. It had at least 6 inch strips of 1/4 lead tape at the 3&9 positions.
Why doesn't Yonex just craft a heavier custom racquet for him as he obviously is not happy with it as is?
It was loaded with lead!
Reason being, like all pro stock racquets, the base starting weight has to be light to allow the most flexibility for tinkering the setup. At the pro level, every small variable in the game conditions could throw off a player, that is why that flexibility is so important to them.
such a good thread, still no swingweight?
Hey fedace, is that the red string??a.
Yes, it would be nice to know the SwingWeight ...
@frinton , have you try to measure it ?
All we need is a side by side photo of Stan's pj and the retail VCG. I can say at least the paint finish on both sticks are different, although I am no Yonex expert.
Hey guys, sorry for the delay... I am not home often...but finally made time for measuring this weekend.
I measured 7 times (after doing some trials first) - of the 7 results I eliminated the highest and lowest ones. The remaining 5 measurements were between 358 - 364 and the average is 360.6. I hope that helps.
Reg. the comparison between the Wawrinka stick and a retail, if somebody has a VCore Tour 97... I could make comparision pics. What I am pretty sure of is, that Wawrinka's current racket is the same as mine, with a the new VCore Tour G PJ.
Thank's a lot!
Photos of Stan's rackets
Here are a few photos of Stan Wawrinka's rackets taken recently:
Hope these can be of help,
ProStringing-thanks for posting these photos and the photos in the other threads also!
Any one knows the grip size ?
Thankyou for the up close and detailed pics
