From the TW article, it says that the original skunk was std length (consistent with my memory as well) while the Hyper Hammer 6.2 is longer (27.25" for the 95 and 27.5" for the 110)-- and also notes that the Hyper Hammer is lighter than the original skunks.
i think the hammer technology went away because it "caused" so many injuries and tennis elbow.
i used the hammer a few times - got the worst case of TE in the universe and i almost gave that thing away just to get rid of it.
Worst tennis racquet ever made - "my 2 cents worth of course".
