    my brother was in europe and bought me one; the frame Paul Haarhuis uses. its kinda crummy. it does not play 1/2 as well as the prokennex 5g special edition 13 oz. racket I use. I might like it down the road though.

    Tyger? Never heard of the brand. Are they a Euro only company?

    I think they're a small, Dutch company...

    Quite popular here in Belgium and the Netherlands, also in France they have a dealer and some other parts of Europe, their stuff is not bad, depends what of course, some strings are awful but that can be said of Wilson too.
    They give very good sponsor pacs though.

    Are these stiff rackets so comparable with wilson 6.1 rackets. i like the specs but want a more flexible racket. My arm doesn't like stiff rackets anymore.

    Here in the Netherlands Tyger is a popular racket brand. A certain webshop sells them and Haarhuis is one of the owners of that webshop. A friend of mine plays with the Tyger c10 which have similar specs as the wilson 6.1 95 (with that I mean headsize and weight).

    I called that certain webshop today and asked for a demo of the c10 but they quit doing it as it cost them too much.
