"If i can't play tennis I have no reason to live!"
 
Ah, such a great Seinfeld moment. But really, here's my question - were there ever really Bruline racquets? I have googled and searched multiple times and never found anything, so I'm guessing no.

And a more important question in my case with no relation to the one above - how do you get the white net tape gunk off a tennis frame? You know when you lend your racquet to someone and they don't really respect that it's your racquet and proceed to smack the top of the net tape whenever possible? I now have little white dashes all up and down the hoop (from the white-ish filth that builds up on the net tape from the outdoor elements) and can't get them off. I've tried Goo Gone, I believe I've tried soap and water, and I've even tried to scratch them off to no avail. Does anyone have a way to get this gunk off?

You get those white marks off the same way Robert Downey Jr. got the black paint off when he dressed up as a black dude in Tropic Thunder.
You lick your finger, and rub it off.

and that does no damage to the paint job or frame itself?

Nice, thanks!

That white may not be the net tape. That white may be where the net tape rubbed the paint off your racket. You may be out of luck.

No, you can tell when a layer has come off as opposed to added. And I want my PJ to withstand a NET!

anyone know about the Bruline?

Bruline rackets don't exist. If I remember correctly it was a Prince racket and they modified the P stencil to a B.
