I haven't heard any rumors of any new players racquets coming out soon. So...anyone got the dirt?

Fischer has a new line coming out during the US Open: Magnetic Speed. They seem to be a Pro Impact replacement and a Pro Tour replacement.

i see a distant merger of head, wilson, prince and babolat so the new racquets are nano silicon injected into liquid metal, with O ports and woofer technology and the flexpoint and the result is the perfect racquet

While the upcoming Magnetic Speed 105 sq. in. may be closest to the Pro Impact in headsize, it is quite dissimilar in other ways (the Magnetic Speed is 320 grams, the Impact is like 295 grams, big difference). The Magnetic Speed 98 is actually named the M Pro No. 1 98, and is really an update to the Pro No. 1 (not the Pro Tour) - it plays very similar to the old Pro No.1. I bought one of the M Pro No. 1 98 (Magnetic Speed) at the TMS Cincinnati event.

I've heard that the Head Flexpoint Prestige is comin out in Spring. Also, I think I heard of some talk on nCode Triads, but not sure what that was exactly about.

Also, the Volkl DNX C10 or Tour 10 (not sure of the precise naming) will be coming out early next year.

Building on the success of the MaxPly McEnroe, Dunlop plans to release the Newcombe Legacy. 65 inch head, wood construction, leather grip. Should become the racquet of choice for folks who want to one up the other "players" in their club.

I was told from a reputable source that a new Babolat is due in November. I forgot the model name :confused:

I believe it'll lighter than a AeroPro Drive (Less than 300 gr)
