Question about Stan Wawrinkas Head racquet
 
i have the chance to buy one of Wawrinkas head racquets. if i can believe the seller:)
the racquet is painted a youtek prestige mp, grip size 3(4 3/8 ); extended with 18/20
according to the seller, Wawrinka used the 18/20 in training.

asking all experts for help. what are the chances that it is really Wawrinkas racquet? and what questions should i ask the seller?

thanks everybody for your help

I was not aware that stan used xl length...but maybe, he switched to an open pattern some years ago

the pic shows clearly that he plays 16x19, that would mean, that the racquet for sale is probably not wawrinkas.

I believe that some pros may make some XL frames to test with and maybe they also test with different string patterns.

Yes check if there is a 'TGK ' stencil on the inside of the throat if its a MG prestige MP pj or alternatively it has a sticker inside there that is silver and black and has a series of leter and numbers staring with a capital 'B' .. i think Head started using that way of coding on the YT Pj TGKs. MGs should have the stencil normally.

thanks for all your answers. i asked the seller for a code and he came up with A606801. obviously no tgk code, or he would have mentioned it.
i am less than convinced that the racket was played by wawrinka, but for 100,- i would settle for a made in austria model, regardless of which pro played it or not

1) It is NOT Wawrinka's racket
2) It is NOT Made in Austria

A 100 EUR, depending on the condition may be a very good price.

Stan plays with a standard length, TGK238.3, 16x19, different layup stick from the 238.2 (retail MG Prestige Pro).
