At few other posters,
Easy now, the racquets are not made now out of "worse" graphite. Just less of it, allowed by higher beams and lighter weights, and in some cases higher modulus.
Prices are relatively cheaper then 3 decades ago mostly due to more massive volume and outsourcing to the far east. However, less material plays some rolle, but not to the extent you'd imagine...
Your posts are more concerned about sounding smart than conveying useful information or answering the question. But no matter, we already know about the differences between traditional and modern graphites. It was more a rhetorical question.
