I think that unless some real stringers and companies...
post here, all this talk is just crap.
I called head when I saw that Safin had a prestige with LM paint job at the Aussie. The customer service rep swore that it was in fact a LM prestige, but I know it wasn't because the racquet tech for him told me so.
It is actually false advertising to do that, and if more customers complained to the companies and maybe even the Federal Trade Commission that practice would stop.
It should show you that the companies are all about marketing, not about integrity and the real customer.
