Yeah it does have the plastic bridge. I haven't yet been able to hit with it; it's cold here and there are no indoor clubs around. It has the right weight and balance, and a nice box beam. I just feels like the right kind of thing to be playing tennis with, and not a joke frame. But it is weird (and outdated) to be seeing the screwed in plastic bridge to the thing. I don't think this was how the Copper Ace, etc. were made.
