    Just got my ROSSIGNOL FT 6.80 yesterday. Unlike most ROSSIGNOLS the grommets are in great shape. As a matter of fact the whole racquet except the grip is in outstanding condition. It came from Canada pehaps, the climate makes a difference?

    I don't think they actually play tennis in Canada, so that would explain why racquets are in great shape, and I complain about the Winter weather over here:)

    For example Greg Rusedski had to leave, and was quite funny he pretended to be British:)

    (and I once sold him two £200 James Bond DVD Boxsets, boring true story)

    What about Carling Basset?

    Hey... Carling Basset was Canadian, eh? She played tennis, and looked good doing it. :twisted: Yeah, yeah... she spent an inordinate amount of time in FL, where I grew up... around October you'd start getting cut off by people driving boats, and all you'd see is a huge hat and knuckles... inevitably with NY, or Ontario plates... at that point we'd have the "Poltergeist Moment" - they're BAAAAACK!!!!

    We've got indoor courts, heated.
    And didn't Daniel Nestor win a double major last year?
