definitely a JUICE pj. anyone knows what she's using?
the title sounds so wrong...
she is still using her old head liquidmetal instinct
agreed. but who cares what she uses. her shrieking and incessant ******** looking fist pumps are annoying as heck.
juice pj on her LM instinct? HEAD agreed to paint it with wilson juice.?
i dont think her racket has the LM ridges. So its possible that Wilson made a similar mold for her.
Do you see the LM bumps on the frame?
I'd like some Azarenka juice!
Here are some pictures I took in 2010 for a player who was testing 'new' Wilson frames. You can see the similarity between it and the Head
aint LM, maybe its really a wilson juice.
It's not a real Juice. The Juice has PWS and Azarenka has no PWS. Also the neck and shaft is classic Instinct. Wilson has Copied the Instinct without the LM ridges.
Here is something else to blow your mind. Gasquet is still using the LM Instinct but now HEAD is making them without LM Ridges.:shock:
So it would appear that Wilson is blatantly coping the HEAD Original Instinct Mold or taking OG Instincts and painting them as Juice for Azarenka.
As seen in my pictures above. And it therefore appear that this type of frame existed as far back as 2010.
Oh my, those legs and those shorts. What a combination.
It seems that Wilson has a real thing for coping HEAD frames. This is nothing new for Wilson.
if you look close enough at the bottom part of the racquet head, you can see it appears there are 4 grommet spaces like the head frame, but the juice is supposed to have only 3.
also, the frame she is holding is an 18x20 when the juice is 16x18
it is no juice, but the juice has no PWS
correction: there is tiny PWS, which the frame she's pictured with doesn't have.
WOW great find vsbabolat!! Looks exactly like the shape of the instinct. If I remember correctly, gasquet, azarenka, yen hsun lu uses this frame, but it seems that yen hsun lu stills use one with the liquidmetal ridges here
It's an 18x19, same as the Instinct.
Considering Gasquet's been sporting the Instinct Tour XL for years, it's really surprising that he now has molds without ridges.
looks like he is using short fairway grips
What do you think of these pics? Both 18x19 pattern.
Haven't you read the thread?
Really missing the great pics from earlier in this thread of Azarenka in her Australian Open shorts.
Perhaps TW should change their product pages from "Pros Using this Racquet" to "Pros Using Racquets Painted to Look Like this Racquet"
Don't blame TW, the manufacturers themselves decide who endorses a particular racquet. How could TW actually know for sure what's under the paint? I guess hiring vsbabolat could help Lots of these pro frames aren't even on the market anyway.
I meant it more or less as a joke. Beyond TW not knowing for sure what is under the paint, they would also risk the wrath of the manufacturers. But, if someone wanted to raise a stink about truth in advertising, they would probably have a case.
I did notice that for the Juice Pro that it is no longer claimed to be used by JMDP, and that when you click on him it shows the K Factor instead.
this is true. sadly enough, none of the pro frames are on the shelf as of March 2012. Kvitova, Azarenka, Djokovic,Murray,Rafa, RF, Masha,....and a long list of top pro players use pj and their frames were discontinued years ago. Not TW s fault, but the shameful marketing scheme by head and wilson to take the blame.
But it is obviously some misleading advertising, right ? (not sur of the expression to use in english)
I mean, why a consumer association could not make a significant issue of this ?
Why does Gasquet's handle look so "untidy"? You can literally see the pallet, then leather, then overgrip in "telescoping" layers. Quite weird!
Azarenka is actually using the real Juice racket. Its not a paintjob, i remember reading that she switched right before Australian Open. It was in this months tennis magazine when they did a review on the Juice.
Only way to be really sure is to buy her racket from her autographed or pick up one of her rackets after she gets mad and breaks it and throws it in the garbage can.
It's 100% that Azeranka is using a paint job. Her racquets have no PWS, 18x19 string pattern and the exact same mold as the original HEAD Instinct with out LM ridges.
I think baseline should wake up from her/his dream. it is a pj.
Wilson Juice Parody w/Azarenka
Probably to shave off some weight and swingweight.
I like the gray pallet he has. Some of my old i.Prestiges have gray pallets and they seem much more solid than the current flimsy black ones (although I am not sure if all grey pallets are solid).
I was watching some women's 3.0 doubles clinix today on my lunch break and 3 of the Women were Juicing. It has clearly crossed over in to the women's rec marketplace with the Aza promos. This stick will alter the course of 3.0 women's tennis.
too bad they went for it. wilson and head are two of the biggest scam who have the most shameful market department. The last wilson I got was k90 and the last head I got was MG rad mp(heavy customized to be playable)
Help me out here... What is PWS?
Perimeter Weighting System
that s why it was the my first and last head raq
it's a supersticious thing. for example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSon-gazvKo
At 5:30 Nate Ferguson starts to explain how Stan Wawrinka never wants the overgrip to cover the entire grip
Also, as Gasquet had some serious blisters in the past, he changes overgrip very often and because Tourna Grip is so small and he does it so fast, he doesn't take the time to cover it all up
What is PWS?
