    I forgot to post this.

    Yesterday at the public courts my friend owns, I went into the pro shop after hitting. He said he could have kicked himself. He wanted me to hit with the new Adidas frames. He's got a sample of each.

    There are 5 frames in the line up,

    Barricade Tour, Barricade Tour Light, Barricade, Response and Feather

    The Feather and Response are game improvement rackets

    The Barricades are players frames

    The Barricades come in two weights and two string patterns, 16X19 and 18X20

    The frames resemble Babolat frames except the black/white cosmetic where the Babolat stencil goes is up toward the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the frames.

    The stencil for Adidas has changed to the three bars.

    They are good looking frames.

    He may be late with the info, but he has more info in his intro than the 5 pages on your topic.

    They told me that Adidas is going with 25 distributors initially across the country.

    I don't know about prices. They appeared to all have the same head size, around 100 sq in. I'm playing at another club today, if I get by these courts, I'll get some pictures.
