Did anybody else experience trouble with their Monos? Thy all felt like something was rattling inside the handle. How did you fix it?
Should TW ever consider a re-edition, I would order 4 or more of them. Also the PJ was simple beautiful.
Thinking back it feels like a childhood love
If you take off the butt cap their is a cylindrical lead weight that weighs almost ONE FULL ONCE encased in some silicone type of material. The silicone in mine had broken down into a slimy mush (Something I assume to be very common for this racket as my research has shown me). I cleaned it out and removed the weight entirely. This worked out great as the heat shrink sleeve and leather grip I installed perfectly counterbalanced the lost weight.
