give some design ideas of rackets that might be in the future.
example: prince O holes

If you have a real good idea, you shouldn't post here. File a patent and contact the manufacturers.

Uhh.

Space Particles.

The Tour Version would be an Open Mid Size, and a Tight 95 in or 98 in.
The space particles would have the racket way less then 10 oz. yet has better stability then a PS St. Vincent.

Using lead on this racket would only increase swingweight, and may add power, but keeps its stability.

I forget what it's called, but I read about it in a science text book. There's this new form of carbon out there, that when it bonds, it's harder than diamond. It's the hardest known substance. It used to cost somewhere along the lines of 20,000 bucks to make enough of it to experiment with (we're talking 1 microgram), but it's been discovered that if you attach some kind of molecular tubing made out of iron molecules, you maintain that hardness (well, you lose a tiny bit), but production costs decrease a few thousand percent. That would actually be a legitamite technology, as it would actually do something for the racket. Manufacturers would be able to create super light rackets for those that are young (I'm talking 3 ounce rackets), enhance stablity (much like the Triple Threat bs Prince tried to incorporate), or decrease shock (use the stuff in the handle, it'd practically eliminate vibration). That, in my opinion, might be an actual viable tennis technology in the next decade.

What'd be the point of playing tennis then? If that's how you feel, why even bother posting on this forum? In all seriousness, there'd be no point in playing tennis with robots around.

haha, arinut, that's a good one.

I think that's carbon nanotubes you're talking about. Essentially a molecular network of carbons like the graphite we use now, but arranged in a stronger orientation/bond.

I know there's another "gel" something out there somewhere too...

I'm having trouble computing that sentence, but in the slight chance it went pass you, most people seem to be so into buying brand new technologies that do everything for them that it'd be appropriate that the greatest racket is one that plays tennis by itself. Also, B^U

I'm still waiting for a racquet that will deliver an electric shock every time I hit a bad (or dumb) shot.
It's a good way to train the subconscious portion of the mind.

A racquet with a built-in GPS system that will track both your racquet and the ball via satellite and will automatically make adjustments in the location, swingpath and angle of your racquet to make sure that the ball hits the center of your stringbed on every stroke. :)

Unfortunately, it won't work if you play indoors. :(

I think I would have pass on that opportunity.

I came across a patent the other day (can't remember who filed it) which allows the player to change the balance of the racquet using a little built-in device. So if you're not happy with 7 points head light you can go to 5, 6, 10, or whatever... you get the idea. Now that would be cool.

Nuke, that would be illegal under the official tennis rules!
