(The Edge series was 20% larger than Standard; Director series, 30% IIRC.)
When Head introduced the aluminum Edge, I begged them for a couple of years to make the same size in the 7005 alloy like the Pro. They waited a year or so too long for the Vector, IMO. I played the string-loc Vector for a while...with about 12 different strings in it
