    This was another stick i had tried in the 90s after i had torn up my shoulder. if it would have been a smaller headed beast, i would have probably stuck with it for awhile. it used a floating throat piece with sorbathane in between the throat and the frame.

    anyone have one of these around? i'd like to put one back in my collection.

    like i said, if it was a smaller head i would have stuck wtih it longer. i just can't stand the 100 head size, heck i hate the 97s i have now.

    sorbathane??? (great dog name)...does that stuff really work? I heard the surrealists used to drink it and trip out!!! floating sorbathane is several times as potent as regular absynthe...I think the coffeeshop near Rorsach's house has some....
    good to hear that I'm not the only one pissed that racquet heads are made waay to (hackerly) big...
