Should we mourn? Should we bring flowers? I for one was shocked to see that most of the Prince line was sent to a preamature grave, so young to die: More Response, More Thunder, More Approach, More Game and so on. What is the point of releasing all this product only to toss it after a season. It is even pointless for the good people at TW to bother playtesting rackets that will be buried before the ink dries. Are we tired of companies reinventing themselves every other season. Babolat seems a bit more stable in this regard. Then I see a few "new" Princes that are spec clones of some that have been buried or are on life support. Freshigening up a racket isone thing but why rename and remarket the same items ad nauseam. Prince sure ins't alone here and it is frankly getting old.
