Wilson introduced them to compete against the Prince Graphite, by offering 100% graphite, a similar design (crossbar, etc), and retailing for US$100 less. They used to run what I thought were really effective ads in Tennis magazine showing a Sting + a $100 bill vs a nondescript racquet that was obviously a Prince Graphite!
