Dare I say unproven "new technologies" that have no scientifical evidence that it really works are also placebo? I KNOW all of us on this board are guilty of this. New technologies on racquets that we buy because it's the latest and greatest that could POSSIBLY improve our game. We ridicule a purchase of maybe 50 bucks for a bracelet or necklace but we drop 200 on a racquet?

I say go for it. Instead of placebo, I call it "power of suggestion". If you think it works, it will...

Is religion placebo? For respect of religion, I'll leave it at that.
Nobody on these boards buys a racket because of technologies. We all demo it here.
Well, most of us.
