    Yup, you guessed it. 2 new black rackets coming out! Just saw them yesterday and have one of the demos now. It's basically a 95 and 105sq in. head. the paintjob for the 95 is sweet! black flat matte with very sleek design. had a hit with it last night. reminded me again why i dont use 95sq in heads:(

    anyways for those interested in something like this look for it soon in january! if you have specific questions feel free to email me or whatever

    Yep, I've got both of them, and I agree the 95 paint is very nice looking.

    I hit with both but only briefly. I liked the 95, but I need a larger head size I think.

    The 105 looks interesting but probably isn't a fit for my game.

    For now, I'm sticking w/ my T-7s, but I think the 95 could be a real winner for a certain skill level, of which I'm sure there is a good chunk at the club level.

    IS the brand name Black? I'm not sure what brand you're referring to

    Gamma should probably pay the TW playtest team not to review their racquets.

    Do you have to pay to demo?
    Or do you receive/pick one up and then return it or keep it?
    I wonder where the nearest Gamma retailer is around me...

    I personally thought the BR's paintjob was the best. They should have kept it like that, but the RZR PJ's are good too. Interested in the 95... I can't play over 100's

    yea it depends on the rep. what you can do is next time you go in just mention it so the shop owner will get it from the rep. sometimes the owners dont care about tennis as much as we do since its a 'job' for them

    maybe the shipping fee. you return it.
    thats the thing man-its not all black but the new paint scheme is badazz. its just like the black racket but with a nice orange tint, and its super sleek. you will like it.

    Yeah, I totally agree. It's really really nice looking. Good colors, but what sets it apart is the matte paint finish. Just looks really cool and modern.

    Gamma has a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/GammaTennis

    The folks that run it are nice and responsive and I'd bet that if you post a message to their wall asking who the nearest authorized Gamma retailer is, they will probably help you find it.
