I think that if Head were going to do it, TW has enough bargaining power to make it happen.
Maybe, we'll see.

HEAD started using Twaron exactly 26 years ago and Kevlar was 30 years ago for racquets with Kneissl.
One of the defining characteristics of the PT280/630 was its control oriented 18x20 pattern. A 16x19 is a different animal. Doesn't mean it would not be an interesting frame though.

Was the Electra the first Twaron racket?
