    At that rate, I would buy anyone who wanted that racquet a Hyper Hammer 5.3 OS at my own expense...:wink:

    I just think racquets OVER 110square inch should not be made..
    If you need more than that to hit a tennis ball....
    Pick another sport.

    I think its a research tool built for scientists to study how soon a player can get affected by TE.

    yeah, but beginners arent spending $300 on a tennis racquet.

    I started using a 90inch racquet, and there is no way that I'm a "mini-roger". Plenty of beginners don't start with the Big Bubba.

    As a former BIG BUBBA Tour player ( 135 SQ IN_29" LONG), I would like to explain that some older players who have short or slow strokes find the super Oversize models to be just what their game needed. The Pt & Au frames are aimed at that market segment. 2 frames @ $300{ as most of us don't really rip through string } or 4+ players frames, the cost evens out.
    All that said, I'm not going to the Gold from my Blue/Ozone 4 set-up as I find the idea of the longer strings not to my liking.

    Yes, the price of some of the tennis rackets are out of control.

    well for any beginner starting off with a 90 sq in frame or less, (in today's modern high speed game), i would just hope that they arent playing anyone who can hit the ball faster than 30 mph...

    true, however some rich ones are ;) btw they are also geared for senior players like another poster mentioned




    just keep in mind that i responded to a comment that said 110+ sq in frames should NOT BE MADE AT ALL. i was not arguing anything related to price or anything along those lines...
