I used to play with this guy from Japan that used Bridgestone racquets. He was a very good player and he played very well with them, although the last time I played with him he said he was considering switching to a PS 6.0 95. Unfortunately, I never did get a chance to try his Bridgestone racquets.

Who cares how they look, if they play like crap? The PS 6.0 95 looks like crap but plays like a dream. That's why it's one of the most revered racquets here, and even that Bridgestone user I mentioned wants to switch to it. Pete Sampras didn't win 14 Grand Slams because his racquet looked cool. Serious tennis players don't care what a racquet looks like.

I agree with Break, that's why I'm using the nCode 90.

Did you know Bridgestone makes the Nike golf clubs? Bridgestone manufactures them and Nike puts their label on it.

I have Colgate shoes, no joke. Ok it's a joke.
But I do want a racquet made by residents of the Calledon Hills Retirement Home; this newer generation of racquet engineers stink

The PS 6.0 95 looks like crap but plays like a dream.

actually, the prostaffs look amazing...just like the new black matte vantages I got last week(will be able to play with them next week)

anyway, what are the specs on these things? does cloud=light and flimsy or does cloud=comfortable?

At least Bridgestone racquets don't blow up or wear off like the Michellin racquets. Ask the F1 people.

Well we can't forget, it's not a tire company but Porsche even tried to put a racquet out. It was actually a Volkl racquet though.

Pirelli was more into high tech and telecom as they made fiber optic cables. A little more advanced than tennis racquets.

These Bridgestones don't look good either... then maybe they play well

A pro shop called "Racket-Racquets" in Arcadia (I think), California (near Los Angeles) carries Bridgestone rackets from Japan. They did feel nice in the store, but I didn't get to play with one. Seemed to be a players racket and the guy said they were very popular.
