    Oh I see...

    Why doesn't Nike put out those "normal style" tongues like they do on Rafa's shoe? Those are so much more convenient than the unitongue!

    He wore that against Simon.

    And I'm pretty sure it's a custom tongue. Just like his other CB's. What I don't understand is why Nike keeps the unitingue out there. I don't see any benefits to it at all.

    ^ Yup, against Simon... but he's definitely had more night matches.

    As for the unitongue, I guess its cuz Nike marketed it as one of the features of the Court Ballistec's, so to them, it would make no sense to release a "normal" version.

    I personally would prefer a normal tongue, but oh well.

    Yeah i cut up my unitongue on the CB 1.3 to make it a little easier to fit into.
