It is definitely not a real TT Graphite, that model was even under 280 grams. Nalbandians racket is more like 360 grams and 28 inch. Probably a 100 sq.in POG Longbody with a paintjob, this has been discussed many times.
Yeah, I think there is a good chance it was the POG LB with some paint. Coria and Ferrero also used it with PJs. It's the dirtballer's holy grail, and they'd all still be using it if the racquet companies could PJ out the crossbar.
saw that the prince tt graphite midplus has a stationary weight of 326 grams strung .. and it swingweight .. duck , take cover and run.... is a whopping 356..
its length off the manufatctureres rack/ shelf = no customjob ,is 27.5 inches.. so it is a longbody ..
i find it pretty weird that everybody seems to have´missed out on this racket .. and take for granted a POG is the one.. wake up ??!
the prince graphite longbody has 'prince' on both sides near the throat. the one he's using has 'tour' on one side. it could be a longbody..the head looks pretty big but the handle looks pretty long which LBs usually have
Nalbadian, Coria and Ferrero they all used the POG Longbody in 100 inch pj as the TT Graphite 100, I saw the Raquets in Paris years ago, and you can see on the picture that the cross bar is totaly straigt, on the TT Graphite it was not that straight!
I remember someone talked about how the Triple Threat Braids on his Prince weren't protruding, hence, a pj of the Original (just like the painted Liquidmetal you see on Agassi's and Safin's Heads)
