I did remove one set of ZipStrips from the Bolt 100 but not from the other models. [see more]

Bolt 98 Review

Everyone knows I am a big fan of heavy racquets so this should be a favorite of mine.  We will find out later! Every once in a while someone will have a great idea, and, put a lot of effort into getting that idea to market.  So many times the battle is so “uphill” as [see more]
