TW is receiving a limited supply of 250 racquets in an exclusive deal with Wilson because they are an official ATP partner.

Look for a video blog and review of the racquet in the next couple of weeks.

Preordering will commence on April 21. Only 1 racquet to a shipping address.

It is not announced, but speculation is that it will be in the $250 range including custom velvet-lined box and standard shipping.

They already have the mold and they have made 100 racquets for Pete already.

We know how it works - first will be a limited edition of 1000 racquets. Then, on "popular demand", second and third rounds will be sold. Like the "limited edition" coins always advertised on TV.

the racquet in that form never existed.. there's a cost somewhere down the line
