    I mean, take a look at that anorexic weight, grotesque blubber, and short stubby arms. Doesn't that gal look like heaven on Earth?

    Did you mean Aerogel 1000? You probably couldn't handle the 100 let alone most chicks you know.

    Did you read the feedback?!

    For years, I've been searching for a racquet that I could use to hit a ball over the length of one of our local tennis facilities and I have never been able to. The other day, I found this frame in our local tennis shop as a demo and opened a new can of balls just before walking outside. I learned the racket was strung at 45 lbs with Big Banger ALU Power 16. This made me smile. I took a crack at the first ball with my friend Brian standing on the other side of the tennis facility (over 430 feet) and he told me the ball flew over his head. I'm extremely pleased with this racquet.


    This racquet was very disappointing. I mean, I look at all these comments and I wasn't very satisfied. It is very smooth but it felt to top heavy and uncontrolled for such an expert racquet.


    LOL

    Head isn't doing too good. They've kept going down down down. Liquidmetal ... Terrible. Flexpoint ... Horrible. Microgel ... Disgusting.

    The microgel prestige is a pretty darn good frame.

    The Metallix 10, well, I could fit my body in that thing...
