    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.

    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'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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
