    ...but it has a rotating bookshelf that gains access to a secret stringing room and there is a miniature safe behind the hologram sticker.

    No trapdoors in yonex and Volkl are a bit annoying, especially the absence of any handle technology on the yonex that may get in the way.

    None in Prince, either. (Well, maybe some models do and some don't)

    The hairpin of Yonex Xi 98 is completely filled with the same PU foam used on the handle, making the trap door unnecessary/undesirable.

    Not quite "technology" but it's at least something.

    so it is volkl's version for modifications of adding weight to the handle it seems.
