Any review of it?

Only things I know about it are : 312 grams unstrung, 310mm headlight balance unstrung, 16X20 String pattern, 22mm beam with a shape very close to the shape of the Kinetic Pro 5G, stiffness in high 60' Ra, I don't know the headsize, and wonderfull paintjob.

What is sling technology?

Yep, saw it too in a tennis catalogue. These are the specs listed:

- Unstrung weight: 312g
- Flex: 69 RA
- Length: 68.5 cm
- Balance: 31 cm

There is also a C2 Classic Tour in there with the following specs:
- head size: 660 cm2
- Unstrung weight: 320g
- Flex: 63 RA
- Length: 68.5 cm
- Balance: 31.5 cm

I'm sorry I just couldn't resist :-)

Would this then be a SLING Blade ?????

Would billy-bob Thornton endorse this raquect?

I'm assuming it allows razor sharp placement and thunderous overheads, the perfect stick to hack apart your opposistion....

The headsize listed astonishes me, I wonder if 665cm² is the real headsize or if there is a typo error (it arrives very often) in the tennis catalogue, then the true headsize should be perhaps 645cm² or 660cm²?

It is a strange number, isn't it? Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a typo. I know some listed specs in this catalogue are wrong (for instance for the tecnifibre racquets), but haven't noticed this yet for any PK frame. If I compare the pictures of the frames, it looks closer to 660 than 645, but what can you tell from a picture... I'm curious to know more about this frame. Sounds like a more powerful PK5 which would be very nice.
