    Anyone ever heard of this company?

    I've got a tour model stick in my hands right now - its really nice feeling. 338,2 weight unstrung and a balance point of 33. (how headlight/heavy is that?). 18/20 pattern, 98 square inch headsize.

    Hitting with it tonight.

    Nope. Thats what confused me too.

    I cant find any links or anything about it, all I know is that the dad of some girl who trains with me, owns the company. I dont know his name or anything though.

    Very basic. It's a paintjob of an Old Head ti.Radical, apparantly (says my coach).

    He bought the mold and weighted it different Or something? I dunno

    Err.....From the top of the handle to the middle of the throat is black and fades out to silver. Then it's silver all the way up to about 5 and 7 o clcok on the racket, where it fades into black all the way round.

    just below the bottom of the head - it has the little square of graphite thing the old ti.Radical had.

    The Deesse by its name may well have come from Europe originally, however a company in the UK went broke. A very similar racquet came out of Korea called the Esquire and another from Europe called ADVANCE SVS.

    I have seen a more traditional colour way of this design, however the Walnut burl effect reminds me of an English Bentley dashboard.

    It called a woody graphite.

    This would be one of my personal favourite unusual designs.

    If it is 27" long, that's 4 pt HL. If it is 27.5" long, it's 6 pt HL.

    IIRC, "déesse" means "goddess". It's about time the French Wiccans got their own racquet line, I say. Do they have a web site?

    Balance point of 33 cm UNSTRUNG?
    That thing will have a SW of 400 by the time you string it...

    Just got a hold of a Miracle graphite with cover that has the stringing pattern.
    Do you still need it?

    An Australian, Barry Todd designed the DEESSE range. Barry originally designed and marketed the FIN range. While in Europe he convinced DEESSE to produce its own range since it was giving away plenty sporting products through the cosmetics business. The range comprised a range of wood effects which were highly unique and one MIRACLE model had a very interesting alternate cross and main pattern of stringing which enables a point to be played out when a string breaks because the surrounding strings will maintain tension. Barry was involved in a major car crash and without him at the helm DEESSE pulled back from a major launch. The entire range represents considerable design and graphics expertise gained by Barry who worked in Taiwan and Korea for close on 20 years perfecting graphite technology.
