    In order for you to see THROUGH plastic, the plastic has to be transparent.

    And it's not obvious, because...how many of us couldn't tell from the picture? I just thought it was a part of the plastic (orange-colored plastic).

    I'm only making a big deal, because one of my professors once taught me, whenever someone says "it's CLEARLY...[so and so]." they don't have the slightest clue what they're talking about. Not that it pertains to the present issue. Let's move on.

    Haha so applying your professor's rule of thumb, you have no idea what you're talking about (which, in this case, is incidentally true).

    And let's be honest, what your professor taught you wasn't the "only" reason why you're making a big deal out of this. From what I've read on this forum, it seems you genuinely enjoy nitpicking and teasing others :) Not necessarily a bad thing from my perspective, mind you, as it makes the forum quite entertaining to read when I'm bored with my studies...

    That is a sweet ncode.
    Ive playe with one of those before (the hyper pro staff tour) and i dont understand how you guy can play with it.
    it is soooo solid, so stiff.

    I couldnt get power out of it.
    That was several years ago, but i never tried again.

    My rackets. The Dunlops still have the stock gecko grip (one still has the plastic on it) but I may switch out to leather as some point.

    I've never played donnay, but they make some rackets that sound pretty intriguing such as the gold 99

    tough to say. they are all basically thin beam flexy lots of feel. the main different is weight. so pick the weight you prefer and blast away!
