    Ergonomic design perhaps? LOL.

    I cant for the life of me understand why someone would try to sell a broken racquet on **** (saw a couple of broken nCode Tour 90's as well). Do they honestly think people are so stupid they'd buy it? Maybe okay if it was collectable but in thise case....?

    Still, doesn't cheese me off as much as the people who sell the racquet in one auction and the racquet cover in another.

    I was thinking of buying it for the challenge of hitting the sweet spot, the 70" standards are now too easy for me :)

    I can't understand it either, but apparently someone did place a bid on it, believe it or not. Who's the weirdo that asked for the grip size? Like it matters?

    Joe, that's the new "kidney" shaped head design. The shape allows it to go through the air faster than someone with diabetes insipidus on Lasix passes water, faster than a scorned wife calls a lawyer. It's a bear to string though. It uses a form of proportional stringing, and it's great for those guys you play that rely on frame shots to hit winners.

    Steve, I bet your one of the few guys that would have a chance of stringing that racket. Maybe it would even be easier than a blackburne, but Im sure you could not tension it too high since you may alter the optimal shape :)

    I can't believe they asked for the gripsize. Maybe its supposed to be used for some other function than tennis!
