    Yonex is just weird. And Fischer has the Zelda triangles on it.

    The Vantage red bouncing ball that makes a "V" is by far the coolest logo. :D

    BTW, the Head logo is not a boomerang. It's the tip of a ski. They started as a company making skis (and still do).

    I prefer the old style Prince logo (the one they used in the early days). Of the current ones I couldn't go past Wilson. Very simple and very stylish in its simplicity.

    I like Head's logo. Wilson's logo is too plain.

    Head logo. It is the letter "A", which means the first letter in alphabetical table (like Wilson, #1). In the other hand, it is drawn as a racquet head and a ball. It is so cool.

    I have to say Head. Because I'm contractually obliged to plug them, hahah

    Also, I heard it's called a 'vector' the Head logo is...

    Toss up between the German and Austrian companies. Love the Volkl V's and Fischer triangles but my fave was probably Kneissl's star.

    hahahahah its a Parabola(-y=x^2+3)

    Parabola was flipped vertically about the line y=0.

    also the point is located at(3,2)

    If the vector space is finite-dimensional, its vectors are commonly denoted by matrices with dimensions n×1 (column vector) or 1×n (row vector).

    Even though I play with a Yonex, I chose Wilson's "W". It's simple ... and classic. It was difficult to choose among the Dunlop, Yonex and Wilson logos, though.

    Ski company logos -- who just expanded their brands to tennis -- don't "cut it" with me. (Head, Fischer, Kneissl, Volkl, etc.)

    True, it is a parabola.

    But it's also a vector. And I don't really want to get into much of a physics discussion right now. I'm too tired...

    I never even know what Yonex's symbol was for the longest time. I think the Yonex is stupid-looking, Prince and Wilson are plain and boring, Estusa looks demented, Head, Dunlop, and Babolat are decent. However, Volkl has far-and-away the best symbol. It is sweet. I have looked into buying a hat or shirt with just the symbol on it because it is so cool and most people wouldn't even know what it is. I don't, however, like the overuse of the symbol on some of their bags where they have it repeating next to itself over and over. Anyway, Volkl symbol rocks...and they make great rackets too, even though I don't use them.

    Head and Volkl look like symbols from uniforms found in Star Trek. The Yonex double Y is just confusing. The Dunlop Arrow thingy is a B*&^H to stencil on. The Slazenger "S" is just stupid. The old Slaz panther was cool...

    For me, the Vantage dynamic dot "V" is the coolest...

    That's precisely why Volkl is the best. It looks downright Klingon!
