    I'm sponsored by Wilson so I had to hide these.
    A coach at my club did these for me.
    Good job, eh?

    Yeah, looks really good. I like plain black. Have you played with them yet? I'm curious how well the new paint job holds up during the play.

    Let me get this straight. You use Wilsons, but you also use a Babolat. How can this be possible!?

    Everyone knows that Wilsons and Babolats are diametrically opposed in specification, philosophy and in spirit.

    If you have a Wilson and a Babolat in the same bag, it will create an upper level low pressure system which will collide with the prevailing high pressure system and create a funnel cloud inside your bag. It will rain for 40 days and 40 nights. There will be wind of Biblical proportions.

    Does your paintjob prevent such epic disasters in your bag?

    the woofers dont do anything, I dont see how they can possibly work. It looks like any other grommet to me,

    Wow!

    What part of Canada are you in? I would for sure send my sticks to your coach to be stripped and painted in all black. Personally I love just plain black frames, but it's a pain to do it yourself...
