    TW is receiving a limited supply of 250 racquets in an exclusive deal with Wilson because they are an official ATP partner.

    Look for a video blog and review of the racquet in the next couple of weeks.

    Preordering will commence on April 21. Only 1 racquet to a shipping address.

    The source is a Wilson press release. I don't have the link to it right now.

    It is not announced, but speculation is that it will be in the $250 range including custom velvet-lined box and standard shipping.

    They already have the mold and they have made 100 racquets for Pete already.

    We know how it works - first will be a limited edition of 1000 racquets. Then, on "popular demand", second and third rounds will be sold. Like the "limited edition" coins always advertised on TV.
