Why did the titanium racquets die out? thanks.
I agree.anirut said:I think it's the "material fad" syndrome. In those days anything Ti could bring oohs and ahs to consumers. Today it's the nano.
In the past days of wood, when fiberglass lamination came out it caused the same effect as the Ti. Then came full fiberglass, fiberglass with Al laminate, full Al, boron, graphite, etc ... each caused oohs and ahs in their days
Hey, its all marketing trick.
are you serious?wyutani said:titanium = recreational players...
it would depend on what you need and what you're looking for. from head, the ti. fire pro edition, ti.classic, and ti.radicals are all good pickups imo...especially if they're at low pricesAlafter said:Well there's like a gazillion titanium sticks in store, all at uber cheap prices. Maybe they are good pick ups then?
LOL, good one!louis netman said:I hope it's on its way out. Volkl experimented with it one year and the Germans were done with it. Titanium's the stuff that sends vibrations right down into your bone marrow...
In general, they're slightly lighter. When I switched from full graphite Wilson Pro Staff 6.1 Classic to my PRTi, I had some arm trouble for the first few weeks, even though it was lighter. Anyhow, time passed by, and never really had any injury to the arm unless I hit nothing but kick serves the entire match :mrgreen:MTChong said:With respect to titanium, how are they for the arm compared to full graphite frames?
