    Number 230553019277 on that popular auction site.

    Anyone ever seen or used one of these?

    Apparently only 1000 were made and never sold to the public. It has a speed gun built into the frame itself which tells you how fast your last shot was.

    Never seen one or even heard of it before, but found a pic of one (thanks to www.80s-tennis.com)

    Just received two of these babies in n.o.s. condition.
    No covers, pitty, but with functional LCD displays.
    Pics will show up on my website later this week.

    I'd love to have one of those. They're a bit like a limited version of the Babolat Play and Connect.
