He had really switched two years ago to the RDis 100 Mid. Now it looks like he really switch to the V Core 95 D

On Wimbledon it looks like V Core 95 D...

Kemitak 06-22-2011 07:35 PM

... so he never actually played with the RDS?

It has always been interesting to me that Hewitt plays with no overgrip. You don't see that too much nowadays.

Pictures of his "95D" appear to show a racquet with a rounder head (wider at 3&9) than the retail 95D. Looks more like the Rdis 100 to me.

I believe hewitt uses a bigger handle and does use an overgrip. He used to use the Yonex Supergrap black, and then switched to some variation that had antibacterial something-or-other in it.

Many thanks.
Sweet racquet. Preety heavy, no?
Interesting how it feels?

Nikae 09-23-2012 01:13 PM

Does he use extended frame maybe?

He chokes up on the handle on both forehand and backhand (like many other players do, that use extended frames).

Standard length, to my knowledge.

I have always read here from folks who seemed to know that Hewitt's rds sticks were pjs of the super rd tour 90.

Doesn't look like standard length, but our eyes can be deceived by the small headsize and the isometric shape.

Isn't that an old picture? He's been wearing his own line of clothing for a while now.

Vcore89 07-28-2013 06:24 PM

Lleyton's always used paintjobbed Super RD Tour 90 even when the MP 1 Tour 90 came out but he's not one to shy from playtesting it in tourneys only to revert back from his paintjobbed SRD Tour 90. He's actually played with the RDiS 100 mid though only if briefly.

Nikae 09-12-2013 06:21 AM

So its extended length after all? Someone should know for sure.
