I don't know how many of you know about this and how well you know it if you do, but I found this material very interesting and decided to post it. Here is the link:

It was used by Borg for a short period of time, but I do not remember what the model was called. There was a Polish knock off that was called Stomil. I personally had an aluminum Head that featured a very small round head and a rather long body. I used to like it also. :)

I just found this thread and I was very surprised by the system used in the making of Prince Vortex. That is why I left a comment there that has to do with injection moulding...

It's the Head Professional, nicknamed the redhead. If you need a picture or details, let me know. I used these for a few months in 2006 when I was having trouble finding decent strings on my Dunlops.
