when will a new releaserelease racquet go on sale?
New poster here--I was looking for a more powerful racquet than my 10y old prokennex 5g pro. I see the good reviews on the head IG extreme pro 2.0. The older IG Extreme is discounted at 99 with free bag or shoes thrown in. It is basically half off. Is it safe to assume the 2.0 wont be discounted till the 3.0 comes out?

the 2.0 only came out in 2012 or 2011 i think. Probably will be discontinued at 4.0 or 5.0 but you never know.

If you can demo both the discounted version and the 2.0. I think the 2.0 is worth the extra money personally.

Yes the old version seems too stiff. But I have to wait time spring to try the demos. No reason to jump for the cheaper one for now I guess...

Reread your first post. Sorry I misunderstood what you were asking. Anyway, seems like head racquets are on a 2 year model lifespan in general. If I were guessing I would guess that the 2.0 won't go in sale for another 12-18 months. But that's just a guess. And then you might want the 3.0 or extreme graphene or whatever.

What I don't get is why it's less money than the other racquets: 170 instead of 190 or 200. Maybe because it's fluorescently ugly. Not juice ugly, but pretty bad.
