    lol...i actually have one lying around in my room. pretty hard racket to play with since it's much stiffer than a woodie and really has no power at all.

    The Slazenger Phantom was apparently discontinued shortly after it was released, because it tended to break - in the throat area I think it was.

    There is some argument as to when it was released, Kuebler's book mentioning 1974 (which seems extraordinary) but a German tennis mag mentions it as newly released in 1978.

    Does anyone have any further imformation about the release date?
