Seems people liked the black racquet, but preferred a full matte black pj, which was taken off...
Wonder who's going to get it.

That seems like a pretty stiff lineup.

Are you referring to the stiffness of the racquet? Anyway, the stiffness of their new line is comparable to that of the Babolat Aero series.

I like the PJs of their new racquets. Plain black is simple but a little color with stripes makes a nice looking racquet, IHMO. :)

Exactly. The entire RZ lineup is stiff.

I enjoyed the 98T but it wasn't easy on my shoulder.

Wish there was something around 60RA.

While I do like the matte black paintjob, the retail paint looks fantastic.

Lowest siffness is 65. Beyond my arm's limits.

Would also be nice if they listed the string patterns in specs...how'd they miss that?

I tested the 98. Up-sized the grip to 4 1/2 and added lead tape @ 9&3 to bring everything up to 12oz. With the right strings, it played OK for me, but not enough to bump my present sticks (PK Type C Redondo).

Some people loved it. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those. The Feel just isn't there for me.

I'm sure Gamma will sell a TON of these just on the hype alone. But how many will become repeat customers???

This is the black racquet with cosmetics, in other words, everybody was testing the new GAMMA racquets. I got to hit with one, but didn't care much for it.

I forgot to say the strings are in the catalog as well, the co-polymer and multifilament, both black.

If these had turned out to be cortex free babolats everyone would have been pumped to buy. But since its a gamma no one is going to..

You said it all my friend, all I see here on this site is very biased people to HEAD, Wilson(I like a few of their racquets) and Babolat.

You can make a great racquet, but because it's brand "X" they will not buy it, even it plays better than anything they will put defects on the racquet just based on the brand itself and create excuses no to like it.

I have played with many racquets from head, wilson and yonex, yonex is better overall (quality, qc, perfomance), but it's no head nor wilson, so they take a dump on it before they even play with them.

You gotta give it up to head, wilson and babolat marketing, it is effective.

The thing is black racket looks like babolat.
I don't really understand why gamma wanted the rackets which looks like babolat. They should make their rackets with unique, distinctive new design or technology. Gamma needs to explain more than just racket specification. Especially why their rackets are different than babolat. Otherwise some people might feel like they are buying fake babolat or babolat copy rackets. Gamma already decided to make the rackets and got decent amounts of people's attention so they need better marketing strategy from now on.

Mmmmm.....I should make a racket development lab too ^_^
I already have an idea.
Make diamond shape holes in racket and call it.
"D3 technology"
"revolutionized new aero dynamic rackets"
Now I need to find funds. Anyone want to put some $$$? Maybe gamma Hahaha

Why is brand so important? You should buy a product that fit your needs at an affordable price. It is inconceivable that so many people would buy a racquet at high price just because it's highly promoted, hyped or played by the top pros.

seems like wider string patterns can accommodate stiffer racquets, as there is more give in the string bed.

any one else have this thought before?

Looks like a bunch of new overgrips, too. Hope this doesn't mean they are discontinuing the Supreme overgrip.

Gosh, they look too harsh on the arm. The green one is very similar to my Aero Storms stock, but other then that they look just awful!

You are referring to the specs, right?

Yeah! The specs on them just look ridiculous. There is no way I can see these taking off without being arm killers. Of course I could be wrong, but 77 stiffness on one? Come on, that's just crazy.

Can someone explain the RZR 100 T to me? 11.9 ounces, 1 point HL, swingweight 351, stiffness 75. And if you don't feel there's enough pop with those specs, the string is 16x18.

The pj's look kinda flashy but much nicer compared to their previous line-up. Will there be any official TW reviews of these sticks?

the old gamma stencil looks much better than the new one.
