Now whats wrong with that racquet... I dont understand people... I offer to string racquets at 12 bucks including stringing... I use a $899 High quality Alpha DC-Plus all the above I use Wilson Syn Extreme. Here goes my friend gives the racquet to my other friend which has his friend string it for 15 including stings? He uses some crappy 2 point mounting system $300 machine or what not... I dont get people... The guy messes up forgeting to string the last mains and make them as crosses so the racquet becomes a piece of crap 16x22 LMFAO Wilson Tour 95... He doesnt even offer a refund or restring... I just laugh at that... All I did was misweave in the pass and I offered free restring... I dont do that anymore... Well the majority of my team strings from me... They guy actually damaged the tour also... he said it was the clamps theres a 1in dia scuff on it... I dont care... I just want to string our teams racquets... I dont even charge much the stores charge 18... I make deals some some people for 10... no problem... I see how some people think they can mess with the Alpha DC-Plus... I think not.

Ummm...there may not be anything wrong with that racket. Classic Head rackets have an elongated shape to start with and I think the shadowing in the picture may make it look more enhanced. I'm pretty sure that my old Prestige Tour 300 (long gone) looked just like that. My .02

Uhhh yeah me too. So, Mr. Choi do you think all Yonex rackets are manufactured wrong?

And you ever wonder why Head recommends two-piece stringing, crosses starting at the top.

Head Prestige had always had an oval shaped head.

Maybe this will help you guys see it better.
Compare these two identical racquets.

Pay attention to top of the frame. First one isn't quite oval.

String pattern looks like 18 x 19 if I counted right. Looks ok. But is sure upset somebody.
