    Hopefully a few companies in the future will make a universal racquet, which combines all good working technologies in one racquet.(cortex, 03 etc)
    I doubt itll happen, but it would be cool.
    You can post a combination of technologies and give the racquet a name.eg
    Flexfactor= KFactor with Flexpoint holes.
    or
    A racquet with Cortex, Flexpoints, 03 holes, Liquidmetal, and a power arm or something.
    Make your own.

    Technology is lame anyway.....if you think it's gonna make you play better you may be delusional.

    You mean it would be cool if they merged their marketing departments.

    I hate to break the news to you buddy but all these techonologies is just marketing. Prince has been saying you get 54% more power for the last 10 years. So accoring to them, my shots that were 50mph back then should be like 75mph now. It is all a load of crap

    What is a Universal racquet? that would have to be a racquet so too stiff, not too flexible; not too powerful, not too low powered; one not too long, but one long enough; with a head size not too big, but one not too small.....my porridge is getting cold, just buy the Holy Grail and be done with it: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Reviews/TWHG/TWHGReview.html

    I'll settle for a handled hoop with strings on it.

    You can add Fischer's magnets to any racquet and it won't make a lick of difference to performance or cosmetic. You wouldn't know it's there.

    The Universal Racquet was released by Prince years ago. It was the Prince Vortex. LOL

    I want a powerful graphite racquet that looks just like a wood racquet from the seventies. That would be so cool. People would think I am an amazing player :)

    Imagine an O3 racquet with flexpoint holes. It'll be like tennis racquet having gone through a shootout.

    On a more practical note, pretty much all of those technologies (effective or not) are patented by their respective manufacturers so there's no way one company could or would make a racquet with all of them. They only have access to the technologies they own.

    I'd have one with Cortex, Flexpoint, the whole lot. I'd call it "The BullSh!t."
