    All I know is that all ceramic frames only comes in white color. I have a Fox WB 210 - frame felt pretty stiff. I restrung the racquet to 55 lbs (Spiral Flex) and it still feel like a board. Should I drop the tension down to the lower 50's? Are ceramic frames stiff?

    I have limited to no knowledge of ceramic frames.

    Actually, there were a few Yamaha ceramic frames that came in a more traditional colour scheme. Seem to recall them being very dark brown. Not pretty, but not white.

    The Wilson ceramic wasn't stiff and I don't think the ProKennex was either. The Prince Spectrum was supposed to be stiff but had a nice, soft feel to it.

    If you've got good control, drop the tension on your racquet to 45lbs and move up from there. If control isn't your strong suit, start at 50lbs.
