    It's not even listed on the "order" tab ? It's been there previously, but no longer ?

    FYI, some members here who have recently purchased Donnay racquets have complained that the Donnay handle size runs too small and that they should have bought 1 size up.

    So who knows, perhaps 4-3/8 is what you'd really want.

    4 1/4 always runs out first with pretty much any racquet..a smaller grip size is preferable in todays game (even Fed only uses a 4 3/8 and I think Nadal used to use a 4 1/8

    I would even recomend that they do away with 5/8 and maufacturer more 4 1/4... much easier to build up a grip size than to tear one down.

    The late March shipment was pushed back to April 7. Please remember that these are estimated delivery dates. We try to be as accurate as possible but sometimes there are delays and other things out of our control that affect these dates.

    Still no projected date for 1/4 grip?

    All of the sizes except for 1/4 have a expected availability date. Does this mean 1/4 will remain unavailable after restock?

    Do away with 5/8!!!!! Thank god you're not running things......just because you have to use a winnie grip size don't mess it for the rest of us. Grip size is based on the size of your hand not what someone uses.....I have huge hands and am over 6'3" and didn't use a 1/4 even when I was 7.:)

    The 1/4 grip size is visible now too, and we've updated the in stock date to April 9.

    The folks at Donnay have informed TW that due to the tremendous demand for their new Pro One 16x19 and Formula racquets, they’ve temporarily depleted their initial stock, but assure us more are on the way and will be available by the end of this month. Donnay apologizes, adding that the early demo and sales demand exceeded even its highest initial sales projections. According to Donnay, interest in the Formula heightened even more following our recent review (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/reviews/DFORM/DFORMReview.html).
