WARNING - PICS OF NUDE RACQUETS - WARNING For everyone who has ever wondered what's beneath the paint of a classic racquet. I've just finished removing the paint from the GTX i bought yesterday: Nice weave of fiberglass. No graphite or carbon to be seen, but it's probably beneath that fiberglass. The MAX200G, on the other hand, has no pattern at all in its structure. You can see a bit of glimmering from strands of graphite, but no weave: Next up: Copious amounts of filler.
