I miss my Noah, I traded my Noah to complete my ultra collection. I must say though, that slivver of wood in the throat is one of the most beautiful things in existence, from a side view the grains of wood can be seen, a strangely powerful mix of natures imperfect perfection trapped in precise engineering and modern manufacturing. The finish is a high end minimalist silver color field,covered by a gooey translucent 1/8 inch layer of transparent gel medium.
From the first day I saw pics of your racquets Virginia, I knew that you were much much different than any other collector. I saw right thru to your love for the aesthetic beauty of a racquet, as being the sole criteria for your collection. For this reason I would strongly suggest the silver Noah, a super dooper jaw dropping good looker, you will fall in love all over again guaranteed!!!
