    Swingweight affected by stiffness?

    I had to get it wrapped over the copper and black. I wish!

    Wow! Upgraded Message Board/Talk Tennis Looking Really Good

    When viewing a forum category menu on a phone in portrait it's not possible to select a page number. When the phone is turned to landscape the options appear. I.e. You can select the final page of a thread rather than landing on page one. Am I missing a trick somewhere?

    Question: How do racquet manufacturers get air into the yoke?

    There are a few variants on the materials used but essentially it's the same process. Carbon is wrapped around a small bag of PU beads or a rectangular piece of PU foam. The heat in the moulding process causes the PU to expand and push the carbon into shape whilst it cures. If you cut through...

    Babolat Quality Control 2015

    Hi Josh. You mentioned the RDC machine in your post. Is it correct that this machine is no longer produced or supported by Babolat?

    The rise and fall of racquet companies.

    from my understanding, the patent was owned by Jack Frolow and Wilson bought the patent when they realised it could restrict other brands. The patent was about 2000 pages long and hideous to circumnavigate!

    My first ever racket was a Yamaha. Mostly white if I recall correctly. I might have to search for one now you have reminded me about it!

    Why So Many DIFFERENT Flex/Stiffness Ratings for Babalot Pure Aero??

    As I understand it, babolat are no longer selling or supporting / calibrating the RDC machines currently in use by retailers and there are few alternatives for measuring racket stiffness accurately. I wouldn't want to confidently assume a 20 year old machine in California will measure exactly...

    Nothing shady or suspicious. The retailer was previously part of our distributer network but we no longer support this system as it was not possible to control the accuracy of how the frames were assembled.

    Just to clarify, The Angell frame you demoed was not built or supplied by Angell directly. The retailer you received the frame from has not been authorised by Angell for many years, partly due to the lack of control over build Quality.
