oh WOW :shock: I'M SO SHOCKED I.... I don't know what to say I.... I... am just kidding...

"standard length" uhhhh okay :s
"331 grams" uhhh okay doesn't tell me anything without balance, and even then not much
"98 sq. in head" ........................ this is probably the most shocking data to have been bestowed upon us

thank you, for you have restored my faith in humanity.

i like the specs! similiar to kbt but just a bigger framed head which is good as 93 sq is fairly small and 98 is just right for anyone from club players to pros. i can't wait to try a demo. nice cosmetics aswell in my opinion.

May?? By that time the hype is going to die. The way that Novak is complaining about the racquet if he switches that puts Head in a horrible position.

gerli 01-28-2009 04:09 AM

I know for sure that this racquet will come with a leather grip.
That sounds good for me!

Bolivian Ace 01-28-2009 04:25 AM

May???? I think Head is not sure about the raquet. If it was any good it would already be out.

I am surprised Djokovic isn't dumping the new Head frame and trying to get back with Wilson. Head must have paid him a ton of money; he is struggling with the new Head frame. Trade your ranking for money, what a mistake, Juan Carlos Ferrero all over again.

From what I saw, I was not under the impression that he's struggling with the new racket at all. Actually, his FH is better, BH is pretty much the same, the serve is pretty much the same...

I think he's struggling in his head though...

Too much $$, too much fame, less interest in tennis...

The racquet will also include a feature where it will fall apart if played with in over 95 degree temps. That will give you an excuse to retire in hot matches.

barry 01-28-2009 10:41 AM

For Nole to lose to Roddick is a real set back. Of course he struggled beating the lesser players in the earlier rounds, but he usually makes Roddick look like a senior player.

I think if he stays with Head, he will probably drop out of the top 10. Forehand less effective, no confidence on serve, overall he has dropped a level since switching. But I guess the money was good, I still remember what Head did to Juan Carlos Ferrero, he finally gave up and went back to Prince.
