    They had some good frames, but about two years ago abruptly stopped. Instead, they began importing Fischer racquets and demanded minimum orders.

    A friend of mine just gave me one of his Gamma Tradition 18. It plays great, similar to the Prostaff 6.1 classic.

    Don't use the Diamond Fiber ones.

    They're too head-heavy, light, and stiff.

    I dunno where you get those ideas from. The DF 8.0 was so flexible that you could feel the racquet flex when you were serving. The DF 9.0 was pretty much the same racquet with a flex of 72 for the OS and I think 66 for the MP. I think the DF 8.0, 9.0 and 9.5 were decent racquets. They had some kevlar in them. If I remember right, the 8.0 was 11 ounces and the 9.0 and 9.5 were something like 11.5 and 12. They were all very head light players sticks.

    Hmm!

    I was not aware of the existence of those racquets in the Diamond Fiber line.

    I'm thought only the 3.0 and 4.0 existed in that lineup?
