    I love the specs and the whole idea of this frame. I believe that it plays as you say and I would definitely like to hit with one of these. They have a facebook page but it looks like their web site isn't up yet. It appears to be a new venture where they use natural materials to making sporting good products. Similar to organix but flax is so natural you can eat it and it is full of healthy Omega 6's!

    maybe this is the next technology innovation trend in sports equipment - using natural earth friendly material in the layup with carbon?

    thanks for sharing, it is a very interesting frame!

    the hemp frame is already here. The Vantage Bastcore frames contain a combination of flax, hemp and jute fibers, collectively apparently called the bast. I've hit with two of them and they are supremely comfortable , play great, and when you're done playing you can.........

    It's a really nice frame, especially for anyone over 35 looking for comfort. Tennis Mag did a review on it last early year; I'm surprised no one knew about it. That's why I posted. I got one sometime around Feb or March and we hit with it for about 20-30 minutes.
