    hi, can anyone recommend a flexible frame with a short throat (or longer head?)
    guess the frame must be water-drop shaped or square shaped or?

    Me gots a question. Why are all the rackets out today short throated? What happened to that PS 6.0 85 throat that is like 2 inches. I like a racket with a longer throat, but all current rackets have a short throat. (er....throat is the part above the grive before the racket goes into the V shape right?)

    If you want that, buy a midsized racquet. Smaller head sized racquets have a bigger throat / handle to compensate so that they are 27 inches.

    :rolleyes:
    no recomendations for long throats. we need short throats!
    unfortunately, most of the racquets that have the throat lenght that i like are mid plus or over size
    is there a web site that would include throat lenght to the data ?

    actually, i think the part right above the grip is called the "neck" (not kidding). the throat refers to the "v" that connects that part to the head.

    picture is a good idea but it's difficult to find large pictures of racquets on the internet.
