I've got this image from RPNY from a long time ago, but I would love to see how this thing actually works. I'm curious as to what they create the mold from? is it Plaster that they pour the urethane foam into? or is it actually machined metal routed out to the exact specks of the handle?

Obviously the first unit has the metal case that the mold sits in and I can make out the 2 support bumpers at the top, but that's all I can really make out. I've seen hundreds of these metal boxes at Bosworth in Florida, but I've never seen the inside of them.

If the site is in japanese, how am I supposed to know where to look. Do you have a link to the page you're talking about?

Very interesting. It says that the whole process takes about 40 minutes.

Another thing I didn't know is that generally, a stock racquet's weight and balance is adjusted by applying lead under the grip before shipping out to be sold in stores.

To extend the racquets, it costs about $65 if you bought the racquet at their store, if not, $84.

If you want to change the grip size, it's about $42. Balance adjustment is about $10.50.

LOL I'm no newb, and I'm not trying to make Friends, I'm trying to get answers. I didn't think I was being Rude about it, the link he sent was useless to me in japanese, but thanks for tearing yourself away from the threads on that little tournament to basically make zero contribution to my thread. ;-) gooday mate.
