New products = hype. Hype = sales. I believe most companies try to make better products. Unfortunately these same companies come out with new products because they have to, whether or not these products are any better than previous ones. Personally, I think that I have better racquets to choose from today than 10 ears ago. I can play with a lighter racquet (11.5 - 12oz for me), maintain flex overall (for better feel, volleys, and injury prevention) and racquets are reinforced in critical areas (for more power). I get higher racquet speed, a comfortable hit, maintain control and can add topspin with the lighter weight. I'm a big fan of what's going on at Volkl/Becker, Dunlop and others (some). Comments?
