    SYSOP,

    Do you know the specs of this racquet? Also, when will it be available at TW?


    Thanks...

    I saw this in a shop a few days ago. Here's what I can say without playing with it. First, the paint job is the same as the regular H Tour except that it has a black bumper guard instead of red. It's the same length, 27.25 I think, and it's 105 sq in. I think it had a 16 x 19 string pattern, but it could have been 16 x 20 (wasn't counting that close). It's still fairly light. No word if it's stiffer or not than the original H.

    I've had the H tour for a couple of weeks; it is a 105 head, 27.25 length, 16x20 pattern and weighs in at 10.4 oz strung. Flex is about the same as the standard H Tour, guessing around 63-64RA. I added 10 g of lead tape to the head and grip and it is a sweet playing frame. Nice soft feel, decent power and very nice control too. Have tried a couple of different tensions, and for me, it plays much better strung towards the lower end of the recommended range. Worth a demo, IMO, if you're in the market for a solid tweener to entry level player's frame(customized)

    why does the h tour have a red bumper guard in the first place? were they trying to match it w/ the orange? or did they just mass produce the wrong color on accident? looks terrible to an otherwise, very beatiful frame.

    I thought that the red bumper guards were for the demos only.

    Yes, the red bumper guard is for the demos; have had mine a couple of weeks and it has the black bumperguard.
