has anyone played with a snauwert or one o the frames in the link?
i cant even imagine how awkward swinging one of those things must feel. ive noticed there are a few companies that use the diagnal stringing setup, but this is the only other company ive seen that shifts the WHOLE head at an angle.

I've had one since they first came out. It's heavy by today's standards, but for a baseliner, it's a very good hitting racket. The center of the angled head is in the same place as it would be if the head were straight. Flat serves are fine too, but for some reason, hitting slice and kick serves don't feel quite right. It may be all in the head (my head, that is). Volleying is a little odd too, probably because the racket is in your view. But, the frame itself has good feel, adequate power, and very good control.
