Head Pyramid Tour 630

You must be joking right? It is smoother than PT630 everyone worships.
I was on the HEAD teaching staff when that bat came out. I can't think of a single (local) staff member who switched to it(in Atlanta where there were 75,000 league players). Felt like a dead brick to me. People in Atlanta loved new gizmo rackets and that thing seldom got past the demo stage.

Here's a discussion of this short-lived stick:

By the bye, my weapon of choice around that time was the ProTour 280...after using the TXMaster for a year or so.

I just responded to your calling it arm-wrecker. I used that frame for ten years and my experience is polar opposite to that expression. But yeah you're right. Very few people seem to use it. I've never seen anyone playing with it.

Interesting! You belonged to a very elite group! As I mentioned, Atlanta was a hot-bed for anything new in tennis; but that Pyramid had maybe 1% of the sell-through of the Big Bang :) Different strokes....as they say :)

I played one for a season and was very successful with it. Whether it was the racquet or me just having a good season, I can't really say. The most headlight stick I've ever swung. I'm not one for tinkering with frames but The Pyramid Tour needed a bit of lead.

Also a super super tight string pattern. Great control - not much spin potential. Probably accounts for the boardy feel. I prefer my 630.
