This racquet looks familiar to one from about 15 years ago, http://shop.neoxxline.com/product_info.php/cPath/28/products_id/29
Anyone ever use this stick?

Looks partly like the Snauwert Ergnom and partly like another brand, cant remember the name but it was American and their hook was that unusual handle.

If they wanted to reissue a racquet why not make it the Snauwert Hi-Ten 50

It appears to be a knockoff of the Snauwaert Ergonom concept.

Those rackets are variants of the old Snauwaert Ergonoms with tilted and odd shaped heads and the gripper rackets with the ergo or contoured grips. They say fashions cycle and guess its true for tennis rackets also. Maybe we will see some fishtail and bulbous handle rackets with flat and tilted heads also ...

Did any of you guys ever play with the Ergonom or the Gripper that Joe mentioned? If so, how did they play?

Were they as useful as the MadRaq or the Prince that was supposed to play stiff and flexy depending on how hard you hit the ball?

The MadRaq is really a diff subject (dense stringing patterns) since it had criss-crossed stringing pattern. I dont know anybody that like this pattern and even the diagonally strung patterns that were popular for awhile are really hard to get use to the diff ball deflection. The ergonomic handles were a good idea and easier to get use to but probably never popular because of the additional expense to manufacture. The tilted head racquets were really intended for lawn tennis or grass court play, where the ball stays low thus a tilted head would help players get the racket head in the correct postion to the ground easier for these groundies. This is also the reason why court, royal or real tennis uses tilt head rackets. The the dynamic stiffness racket mentioned above was the dunlop max 200g with graphite injection process, not a prince.
