    -DNX9 - we've been talking about this one.

    -DNX10Mid - they decided to bring it to the States (specs unknown)

    -DNXV1PowerArm - some sort of floating arm that purportedly makes the hit deeper in the pocket. a further development of the catapult as i understand it. specs unknown.

    Are they bringing in the V-Engine racquet that Stepanek uses?

    Floating Arm

    From what I heard, the "floating arm" may relate to the throat piece not being connected to the sides of the frame. It would be supported by a 3rd shaft, similar to the old Le Coq Sportif frames, except without the connection to the side of the frame.

    what, like a built in pendulum? That's just bizzare. I bet none of you saw this one coming.

    Scroll down to Petr Korda's picture. It is right next to Pat Cash fist-pumping. There you have it.
