    That was a Europe market only racquet. It came out of the same mold as the original Radical Tour 630 and Pro Tour 630 mold. It was a racquet marketed to women.

    That racquet looks AWESOME. Definitely one of the best racquets I have ever seen! Does anyone know the specs on that one?

    That brings up an interesting point. What is a 'woman's' racquet? And considering this time and age, would that be against political correctness to market racquets in that way? Any guys have any opinions on playing with a woman's racquet?

    I think that most lighter, stiffer and bigger headed racquets with paintjobs that stound out are considered "womens racquets". Just look at the W-line from Wilson or Airflow or whatever it's called from Head. They are very big and very light, probably even stiff, can't remember.

    The weight and balance of the Vamp Tour 630 I think will be close to a LM Radical midplus or a Flexpoint Radical midplus. You can add weight to the Vamp Tour 630 very easily by putting on the C.A.P system from the LM Prestige midplus both are 20mm beam width. and also adding some lead under the grip to counter the extra mass in the hoop from the C.A.P. If you don't mind using a racquet that was marketed to women.

    I had one while back. Stock frame was very light (~10 oz.) and had a HH balance. I added over 2 oz. of weight to the handle to get it to a HL balance. After the additional weight, it felt like a PT280 clone.

    Is this "Vamp Tour 630" actually the same as the "Lite Tour 630"?

    jimbo333,
    Have you actually played with one with the plastic wrapped around the handle?
