I mean literally. Sometimes I sleep with my racket by my side as a weapon if an intruder every happens to threaten my family. I know this sounds crazy but when you have a baby and and hear strange sounds my racquet give me comfort. Which brings me to my point. Would you trust your racket if you were in a situation where you have to deal with a hostile person without a gun of course. I would guess even a tweener racquet could do major damage. My PS 6.1 BLX 90 could do major harm if I ever had to defend myself. All this is just in theory I'm not a nut or anything and would never harm anyone. Let me hear some fun responses.
