    Source? It certainly isn't their FB page, or their worse-in-the-industry website.

    Heard it from a good source and it was mentioned that they'll bring back more of the traditional feel in the past.

    I'll have more details when I get them.

    But yeah, agree, their website doesn't have much useful info.

    Interesting marketing strategy. Put the majority of your current racquets on sale before even releasing details of new offerings. In the meantime, a portion of your customer base thinks the brand is being discontinued and migrates to another manufacturer.

    What was the traditional BB feel like? I have the Legend, and wondering how it differs from older Becker sticks.

    Yes. It was Volkl that lost its traditional feel with the Organix.

    What the heck is the "traditional" BB feel? Name a racquet, please. Also, seems a bit ludicrous that they're bringing out a new line when the racquets they have are fine. Is it just a bunch of new paint jobs on the existing frames to satisfy the demands of a new distributor?

    I like my London Tour Mids. Can't see how they will improve on that frame... I'm betting the Melbourne and London players are wondering something similar...

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    It's just a simple WordPress install. Could be better but since they're not really selling on their site, my guess would be they don't need to higher a webmaster who's going to build a business.
