    Great. A bigger racquet, instead of the bare controller, will make it much easier to break lamps, hit your sister in the head, and knock the set-top boxes off the TV.

    That small head is more demanding. It will cause you to have more shanks.

    Maybe it will actually be worth getting once the Wii gets a real tennis game. (dont even say that wii sports tennis is great either)

    Come on, those are obvious paint jobs.

    I do wonder what kind of string would play well in them though.

    I think this is a great idea because its almost like playing real tennis. If i have nobody to play against in tennis i can always play this game with the racket controller combo and its almost like real life.

    wiisport tennis is not tennis.
    you can't even play singles!! and the direction of the ball is only controlled through timing, not the way you swing. so extra wii glove = waste of money and danger to your health.
