    Recently at the Tennis on Campus Championships there was a guy hawking these racquets and offering preferred player packages at $225 for 2 racquets and a bag. He said the racquets were a blend between the pure drive and K-factor racquets. However he didn't even know specs of weight or balance. Anyone on here heard of these racquets before? The pics he had in his flyer handout didn't look like anything impressive.... I'm thinking about trying a demo what do you all think?

    If I were shopping based on price, I'd go with TW's line of Donnay frames over Carnelian frames.

    This is what I came up with:

    Carnelian Pro Tour Racquet Details

    Compostition: 100% Graphite

    Head size: 95 sq inch, 613cm

    Weight: 10.6 oz, 300-310g

    Length: 27 inches

    Balance: 30-31cm Unstrung

    String: 16 main/19 cross

    ^^ you can get a pair of Donnays for a cheaper price, also probably a better quality

    Thanks for the heads up, I'm not to interested in Donnay specs just don't seem like they'd fit my game but maybe they're worth a shot...

    I like the composition and headsize. They didn't give RA or beamwidth? If the weight listed is unstrung I might be interested. Unfortunately it is easy to be leary of a small unknown company.

    I didn't find anything on RA or beamwidth. It seems like a fairly shady company.
