IIRC, the claim when Bosworth/Fox first introduced that decagon shape was that the angles provided a more uniform string response (the reports of players who have used it seem to bear this claim out) and greater torsional stability vs regular, curved frames.

It sure sounded like they did. Lendl and Navratilova were quite outspoken about the Boz being the best racket they ever hefted. Living up to the terms of sponsorship, I suppose... Which Head did Navratilova pick up, and what did Lendl switch to?
In my youth I was addicted to The Hokey Pokey, but I turned myself around.
