Not true....the PDP Open, Dunlop Volley, Head Pro and first generation of the Prince and then the Prince Pro were all very solid sticks that players from the Tour to weekend hackers could and did succeed with.

The T2000 was a very different animal - the flex, tubular frame and looped stringing system created a freaking rocket launcher. Even Jimbo couldn't use it in stock form he added TONs of lead tape sometimes from the throat all the way around and in 2 or 3 or 4 layers! He would peel off or add on in practice based on ow he felt or the conditions. His sticks had to have been so head heavy and over 14oz easy at times.
