    What happens if you lose the key?

    Do they offer the alternative of combination locks?

    Ha ha! Chastity belt not included ... you can probably try and call the locksmith.;)

    I was looking at the website and they do sell spare keys.

    You can also keep the same handle and replace different heads. Very interesting concept. But it makes me wonder what happens when the screw loosens up during a match ... I've actually seen golf club heads break off and fly on the greens ...

    2006 US Open It's the finals. Both players enter onto the courts. Federer unpacks his bag, takes out his racquet, and removes the plastic wrap.
    The new up and coming star, endorsing Jenro, on the other bench does the same. His equipment bag is much smaller and convenient in handling. As he attaches his racquet together, he realizes that he doesn't have the key. He panicks, as he simply cannot play with his racquets. His coach saves the day, immediately calling the locksmith.

    I have seen those Jenroes several months ago. I wonder how stable they are. I am thinking, as more and more people try it out, the Jenroes may have a lot of bad reviews in the coming future, the same types as the Wilson Triad models. I'm assuming so because of the multi-segment design. Of course, I could be wrong. Maybe their engineers succeeded with the design (the Triad no feel design).

    I tried emailing them and it got sent back saying the server had rejected their address. I tried calling them before and it never went through.

    I'm not sure they are still in business. The frames were made for Jenro by Bonny sport in taiwan. Bonny Sport used to sell them directly on their site.

    The frames debuted about two or three years ago, and had a relatively high ranked South American player as an endorsee, but I can't remember which one right at this moment. The concept was one handle and several frames, so you could only carry the minimum and still have backup frames, different stringing configs, and not have to change a handle that your hand just loved.
