    A more interesting question as well pchoi04. Is there a pro player who uses a stock frame? Find it very hard to believe that any of them do. Even if you cant see the lead tape its often happened before they take delivery.
    It's like asking which supermodel wears clothes off the rack? None of them do, its all carefully tailored to accentuate their best features. Same for pro players and their racquets.

    honestly, this is one of the most stupid and obvious threads ever.


    Seriously, that's the same as asking if humans breathe air?

    No, Matt was correct. We breathe air, which is composed of mostly nitrogen (78%) with only a much smaller amount of oxygen (21%). If air was 100% oxygen, we would all be fried to a crisp because oxygen is highly combustable.

    BTW, the air we exhale only contains a trace amount of C02 (under 5%).

    Well, the original poster should've done a search before posting at:

    There are kind of 10 threads on this, only in this forum, including on Fed and ARod.

    I guess what I'm trying to say that is our Avioli Sacks in the lungs capture oxygen and our blood stream gets rid of the CO2.
