Can you say 'Roger Federer plays with an nCode' or 'Yes, ATP pros change their sticks every year, that paintjob stuff is just silly rumors on the internet' with a straight face? Go for it.

Agreed! That would just be a stroke of genius! I can just imagine the press statements now. "For 2009 we are upping our quota of good racquets to 12, the rest will continue to be substandard to further our aim of reducing the enjoyment and quality of your game"....:)
