Yes, short lived. The cheap Roger Federer frame that played so well has snapped. The cheap aluminum frame bent up upon hard playing tonight. It is no longer round, it went oblong then really squared off like a Yonnex. Then a hard serve finished it off. Down in flames of glory.

Back to my 98 Radical Tours.

An ending so tragic and epic needs visual imaging to reinforce and accentuate empathy.

It must have made you feel like a beast! Being able to break a frame with your all powerful groundstrokes alone! ;)

Had a $40 Prince racquet strung at 51 lbs. One side was stretched out of symmetry and cracked not long after a few mishits. I must admit, these aluminum frames don't play as badly as you'd think. It's just they're a one time use.

Back to my 98 Radical Tours. The racket was fine; you were just hitting too hard. That was your fault.

But the paint is chipped as you can see in the picture. I needs a new paint job. Also, I want to remove the paint so I can look for cracks.

I like the prostaff Tour 95 design, a nice matte black for the entire frame except for the surface of the inner hoop. I am thinking of electric blue for the inner hoop.

You should give it a Federer 110 PJ.

yeah...but from the picture above, it seems that is a very unlucky scheme.

To **** off iPrestige fans, I can paint it like a prostaff :)

You are not supposed to play with the Roger Federer frame. I keep mine in the box :)
