One thing to keep in mind in this discussion is that if you go to the tennis courts and see young guys with newer frames. . . well, that's all they know, all they could purchase; they just started tennis only about 4 years ago (or something like that)! So the new models are what they can buy for themselves.
Yes, that's true, but there a lot of us "old" guys who have been with players' frames for a long time, and they are gradually moving away from such heavy and small headed frames. Personally I have had some recent success with a stock Head Speed 18x20, but I am still in two minds re making a permanent switch to a more modern racket
