    So why dont you get one? Topspins model is about $150. Or if you want to pay more then try Vantage or some other custom companies.

    sounds like a customized pure drive, if you can handle a slightly heavier frame. Also, such a light frame, taht is so stiff, is just asking for elbow pain.

    I can't stand this pickle shoved up my arse, didn't we go over the correct usage of "you're"?

    You're is short for You are, I think you're looking for "Your".

    sorry about that but it will help you in the future!

    As for my dream stick (at the moment):

    standard length (27 in)
    14 - 16 mains for spin friendliness
    4 6/8 grip
    12.5 oz.
    Flexible (low 60s/high 50s)
    5, 6, 7, or 8 points headlight
    Thin beam
    SW around 320
    90 to 95 headsize
    paintjob is navy blue with a grey trim

    That was a nice image, thanks for the opportunity.

    I can't stand this pickle shoved up my arse, didn't we go over the correct usage of fractions?

    6/8 is correctly known as 3/4.

    sorry about that but it will help you in the future! ;)

    Is Topspin a custom place? Is there a website?
