They just painted their HPS 6.1s to look like the new K6.1s. Before, it was the N6.1 paintjob.
Or more likely their PS 6.1 Classics that were painted like the HPS 6.1, and then painted like the nCode 95, and now painted like the K95. ;)

It's precisely because each generation of retail racquets play differently from each other that the pros stick with the same racquet they have always used and are already familiar with and just put the latest generation's paintjob on it. If each new model had no differences but the paintjob and played the same as the old model, then there would be no need at all for the pros to use paintjobbed racquets. They can just use the actual retail racquet which already has the standard retail paintjob on it.

Since most of them don't use the retail racquet in the first place any more, the argument is not quite valid.

Huh? :confused:

If many pros, for example, are using PS 6.1 Classics with K95 paintjobs on it, why wouldn't they just use the retail K95 if it played and felt exactly like the PS 6.1 Classic that they're already using and have been using for many years?

The point is that the retail versions are not the same and that's why they use paintjobs. If the retail versions were the same, then there's no need for them to use a paintjob since they're already using a retail PS 6.1 Classic underneath the K95 paintjob anyway. So if they played and felt the same, why bother with the paintjob?

And yes, most pros use retail versions of old racquets underneath their paintjobs because that's what they bought for themselves from the store when they were juniors and before they were sponsored, and have been using for many years. Of course, they are customized with lead tape or whatever to meet their personal needs just like many recreational players customize their retail racquets to suit their own needs but the base racquet is still the retail version. Very, very few pros, and only those at the top get totally custom racquets that were never sold at retail in any way, shape or form.

I think once they get done with customizing one racquet, it is too much pain to start the process on another one.
