Very interesting, but I think this article must have been written like 6-7 years ago. I guess this confirms that all those Head Titanium racquets contain only 1% titanium. It also mentioned that the titanium/graphite weaving can only be performed in a single factory in Austria. Does that mean all those Head racquets produced in China actually don't contain any titanium at all? BTW, I wish Head had never discovered using titanium, as that's what prompted Wilson to start incorportaing HyperCarbon to compete, and I wish Wilson had never started using HyperCarbon. That's what's ruined some perfectly good racquets.

Thanks for posting the article.
