Lindsay's racket = paintjob?

So Wilson claims she's using the ncode nTour racket. I have read several comments that say her actual racket is Wilson 6.2 or ProStaff, whatever. Can any of you validate if she's using the real thing, or is it just a paintjob?

Wilson nCode nTour Racquets
Midplus and Oversize racquets offering some nice power, maneuverability and stability with an even balanced feel. 95 and 105 sq, inch respective headsizes, 27.25 lengths and 16/20 string patterns. The current racquet of Justine Henin-Hardenne and Lindsay Davenport. Price: $179.99,

According to tenniswarehouse.com, Lindsay is using the nCode, but her racket doesn't look like this one!

I've read in a couple of places that pro's don't always use the raquets their sponsors say they're using. The companies want to push the latest models, but players don't like to switch - so the tours do a good trade in spray paint

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

I've also heard that Roddick and Sharapova are about the only tour players who use the actual racket model they endorse.

I heard just Roddick and maybe Clijsters.

Sharapova not.

From what I heard practically all the top Wilson users aren't really using what Wilson wants us to believe they're using.


They discuss this sort of thing to death elsewhere though....like maybe on the tennis warehouse message boards.

I browse once in a while.

Prince Turbo Shark has HxV 19x16 string.
Her current racket is 20x16.
I've counted it myself

Difficult to tell from the pictures.
Her 'old' racket HTour and 'new' nTour are physically identical, the difference maybe only in its material.

Funny. I found a thread about it:

All speculation, really.
