    I was just looking aroung on the TW website and could not find the VE 10 anymore. I guess that means the frame is discontinued. Any in memoriam for this racquet? I played with it for some time and actually really liked some aspects of it.

    I said goodbye to it as soon as i hit the first ball with my prestige 600.
    BTW the fact that TW doesn't have them doesn't mean that they are discontinued...

    there's a special place for this one...in my bag. :) btw - alternating between the C10 and T10V makes for fun tennis.

    I like the frame very much. Some people say the sweet spot wasn't big enough for them but I found it to be larger than the PC 600's sweet spot.

    After using the K90 for about half a year, I started developing arm/elbow pain that went away when I started using PC 600s and Tour 10 Mids.

    I hope racquet companies continue making flexible frames for us 30+ year old players.

    It was a nice frame, a nice frame it was. Flexible, long but narrow (that was its flaw for me) sweetspot, very manoeuverable, low power, great volleying device.

    There are plenty of them (Tour 10 VE) for sale in classified and at a very reasonable prices.

    I was skeptic at first when I first got it - stored it in my bag for about a month. Then one day while in a match - I was not playing well at all; (down 1-4) so I decided to pull out the Tour 10 to give it try. I was shocked on how well I played with the Tour 10 - came back and tied the matched.
    I was really impressed with the control, precision and flex of this frame. A true diamond in the rough.

    I liked the black and yellow Tour 10 more then I did the VE. Both are great sticks though. The flex on both Mids and MP's were perfect.

    I think the fact that it was discontinued almost two years ago would mean that it has been discontinued. TW just had new 'old' stock to sell.
