Default Curious: Tennis Racquet and golf?

Hey guys/gals. Wasn't sure if this belonged in this category. Perhaps "Odds and Ends"? But people there were talking about Atlanta Falcons, John Lennon, and cockroach infestations. So I went with "Racquets."

We all know that the top tennis players use paintjobs because of feel, familiarity, confidence, etc. But what about golfers? I used to play golf growing up and have had the privilege of meeting a lot of tour pros. It seems as though they are always looking for the next best thing.

In other words, tennis players seem to want to stick with the old equipment while the golfers want to find the newest equipment. Golf is a very intricate sport (a game of inches, if you will. More precise, to me, than tennis) so wouldn't golfers want to stick with the gear they were using growing up like the tennis players?

I'm not sure if I'm being articulate enough to get my point across, but I think you all know what I'm trying to get at. Just saw all the comments on why pro tennis players prefer paintjobs over old technology... and thought to myself... seems as though golfers would want do the same thing (given the intricacy of the sport), but they don't.
