Hi, thanks for chipping in but they use (or used) the second gen frame.

nycoara 03-04-2012 09:40 AM

Ppc
 
Kenneth Carlsen too.
I have Kenneth Carlsen's and Gonzales's sticks.

They used Pure Control Competition.
PPC have without Woofer grommets and 1st gen material and layers.

Few top players ( include Sam Stosur) use Pure control 3rd gen with Pure Storm paint, NOT PCC.

Pls check this pics.

I always thought Hantuchova used the Pure Control TEAM.

You can see woofer grommets, the groove at the ends of the throat bridge, the much wider beam and the 16x20 string pattern.

Looks like it to me.

Shaolin 03-04-2012 01:01 PM

Maybe Chela, Ginepri.

nycoara 03-04-2012 02:22 PM

LOL
Many players change to new spec or new paint, and often they choice old spec or old paint job.
this Daniela's picks is shoted at just that time when she used PC with woofer or take pics for ad.
Just now, She use Yonex.
JM. Del using old pain sticks that have more old specks.
But Wilson ad said He use new Steam (or Juice??)
If you want to talk real sticks, plas use engeniering code.
TGK or PT or TX,,,,,Babolat's have five numbers for pro's sticks.

I've known about paint jobs for about 25 years now. That's not a ad for Daniela. That was taken at the Old Women's German Open when she was the hot new player on the tennis seen.
Daniela does not use Yonex any longer. For the last 5 years she has used Prince.

Here she is again in Miami using the real Pure Control TEAM with Woofer grommets and 16x20 in Miami at the then Nasdaq.

Yes i'm aware of all that, but in the first photo i posted it's a box beam frame, plays nicely, I just wandered if anyone knew if they had any pro's using that frame back then before the second gen swirly painted frames came out in '98 ish?

ericsson 03-05-2012 04:17 AM

The only one i can think of right now is Sebastien Lareau:


Dave M 03-05-2012 04:52 AM

Thanks Ericsson, I had forgotten about him! Strikes me that it is such a nice frame to use, seems suprising that not many used it at the time.

BDAZ 03-05-2012 06:40 AM

i recall, and have a pic (actual film photo, haha) of richy reneberg using the first gen. pure control. weren't they made using the pro one mid mold (or pro one international)?

If I'm counting correctly, the racket Lareau has in that photo has 20 crosses. The gen-1 Pure Control was 16x18. 2nd gen & thereafter is 16x20.
