    There are barely any racquets that ive seen being played by the name of Gamma. Can anyone let me know what kind of racquets these are in terms of quality and performance. What about durability? Are there any professionals that use them? I see the racquets for sale on this website--but why is there little known about these racquets.

    I use a Gamma as do a number of other members on this board.

    They make some excellent racquets, but they are often overlooked b/c they don't have a big name.

    Recently they've come out with some "player's" racquets (I really hate that term) the X320 or something like that.

    I hear they are similar to the G325, though I never played w/ the G325 myself.

    About ten years ago I worked at a local sports shop that carried Gamma and I demod the Gamma Tradition 18 and 20. Both were excellent racquets and I regret not buying them at the time b/c they are impossible to find these days.

    I currently use a Gamma T-7, which is leaded up to about 12.5oz. I love it actually. With the extra lead I feel like I get plenty of plow. It's 5 square inches larger in the head (which turns some people off b/c that makes it a non "player's racquet), but I would definitely not say it is a beginner's racquet. You must supply your own power, but if you've got reasonably solid/advanced strokes, it can be a very excellent stick.

    I recommend giving them a try for sure. You can get a lot of the older models very cheap.

    I used the Gamma Diamond Fiber 9.5 and the Tradition 18 back in the day. Beautifully made frames of high quality with all the current technologies. The DF 9.5 was an S&V scalpel. I hated it when my last one wore out.

    If Gamma has maintained their QC standards from the DF days, then I'm sure their new frames are top quality.

    they look like good racquets. But no pro sponsorship won't get the tennisphiles rushing to the stores to buy them. Too bad
