    I see Tennis Warehouse is now carrying the 102' Rok. The specs look appealing. Would be great if Tennis Warehouse reviewed it.

    I thought Rok 102 was available only in Japan?

    it does look really light, but i'm sure some lead at the handle might fix it's balance point and it's weight. price looks appealing as well.

    ROK 102 weight

    As you may or may not already know, a leather grip adds mass or weight from .4 to .6 of an ounce. It also has the benefit of a more defined handle and slightly thinner grip, making the frame more headlight, which can offset any lead tape on the head.

    This racquet appears to be perfect for customization into a true players frame, albeit on the lighter side.

    Also, it is flexible, the appealing nature of the original ROK, and only slightly bigger in cross section (21mm vs. 19.5mm).

    The open pattern of course allows for more spin and also for using 16 vs higher guage string, maintaining playability and keeping some durability.
