Not much incentive for Head (or TW) to do this from a business perspective. They will just be robbing sales from their other players rackets. But, keep dreaming.

Who knows? Since the 20th anniversary of the frame's introduction will be arriving soon, maybe they will re-paint an existing frame blue and sell it as an anniversary edition. Perhaps, what they should do, is market them as PT57's for consumers and sell them for $500+ a pop. But, again they would just be cannibaliizing sales of the existing players racket line so what do they really gain?

BTW, high modulus Twaron (aramid fiber same a Kevlar) is still readily available. I have plenty of old flexible graphite frames that feel great and have no aramid fiber at all. You guys do understand marketing, right? Kevlar and Twaron are like so 20 years ago marketing-wise. It would have to be AeroBioBLXNanoAirGelSuperDuperTwaron nowadays .
While I don't disagree with you, I think that if TW were to be able to bring an order of enough units (which, if they were certain they could sell them all, I'm sure they would try), I would think that Head would look at something, similar to what Wilson did for the PS 6.0 RI earlier this year or last year. I think that if Head were going to do it, TW has enough bargaining power to make it happen.
