    I would say that the intelligence technology is...I think that the racquets of the line still have classic feel-the technology is not to extraneous-but it is enough to boost the performance of the racquet. It is also Head's groundbreaking technology that started (and is still used in) all the later technologies.

    Prince Triple-Threat comes a close second, for the same reasons as intelligence.

    I think the Prince More Performance grommetless system is very close to Wilson nCode.

    Why not Wilson PWS? I think it helps here and there.

    Wilson powerholes and Prince's sweetspot suspension system. Both of these designs enlarge the sweetspot and make the racquets noticeably more forgiving on off center hits. That's probably why Serena, Justine and Maria use them. I don't know if any other pros are making use of these technologies right now. Another wta player, Petrova, used to play with the hornet mp but she appears to have changed to babolat. I don't know if any of the atp players are using powerholes or sweetspot suspension.

    My vote is Other. . ."anything Volkl". Nothing I tried feels quite like a Volkl. Kind of like driving a BMW auto.

    Vote= none of the above. It's either PK kinetic or Core 1 technology. You know...technology with actual benefits.

    I just took the most popular technologies along with previously popular, (in my mind). I had only 10 places so, sorry if i missed any techs that people wanted on it.

    I'm sticking with graphite. The only technological breakthrough to ever prove to be more than a fart in the wind.
