    it;s an old aluminum stick made by a company named wish it is actually a very interesting stick. vibrates a lot, not enough mass on the head, almost no plow trough but your are extremely connected with the ball.
    the grommets were broken so i had to cut some grommets from wilson one by one :D

    I played with it for the first time a little while ago and it plays well. It has a nice plush feel with a lot of control. I put 6 inch layer of lead tape at the 3 and 9 but found this setup too heavy, I wasn't getting enough swing speed. I'm going to shorten the lead to maybe 4 inches and see how that plays tomorrow. I also like the Darth Vader paintjob a lot too.

    Well I tried it again today and it felt great. It has so much feel off the string bed, it just has a nice, classic feel. I tried adding 4 inch strips of lead at the 3 and 9 and my racquet speed is much quicker through the air. Also the plow through is nice, my backhand slice, and volleys just feel natural with this racquet.

    Haha that's why I like buying used gear as much as I can. I don't usually notice it if I ding up a well worn racket rather than a new one! :razz:

    This thread is getting epic. Some of these collections are bringing tears to my eyes.

    Oh and I saw you fellas making fun of my pink Wii controller and Guitar Hero gear!
