Foam Filled Frames: A Racket Smashing Surprise

I didn't realize the Wilson H-Tour was foam filled. I found out when I absolutely went insane on mine... Too bad the strings were new.

What other frames are foam filled?

Sorry but can't understand people who smash frames. They should be hitting their head against the wall instead. The frame has no guilt.

It's something I did once before... 4 yrs ago...


I should be ok for another 4 years.

When I Saffin'd it, I felt like I had relieved a ton of pressure. But that doesn't mean it's something I'm proud of. At least I'm not a habitual smasher, and I have never done that in a match.

When I was a junior I smashed a Hyper Hammer 5.2 and a couple years later a Hyper ProStaff 6.1. I felt terribly guilty after each outburst.

I've broken two before. They were already cracked from being used so much, and I had already moved on to different rackets. I didn't feel guilty, as I wouldn't have been able to use them any more anyway.

i almost smashed my racquet today... held back at the last moment as it was an old frame i've had since i was a kid.

have a feeling it's foam filled, but not sure. will check the handle when i replace the grip with leather and add some lead.
