The T-2000 was not a control frame, especially with its trampoline-line stringing design. It was very flexible in the throat, had a tiny head, tended to vibrate and was difficult to string. It may have been one of the worst racquets ever made. Jimmy Connors added lead tape to the top and to one side - which always had to be played in the up position - to improve its playability. Wilson sold millions of them and must have made millions as steel was cheap. After the initial craze, most players including pros switched back to wood or went to aluminum frames which were lighter and stiffer.
