    The new Forza Tracey Hallam Exclusive Super Power.

    Why didn't Yonex think of this before?

    I mean, who wouldn't want a pink racket?:p ;)

    I may be making this up, but isn't NS6K a bit pink-ish?

    HL's also got a pink racquet called the L-Power 75. It's very light overall---rated <74g, IIRC---and has got only 20 cross strings. Yes, imagine my surprise when I strung one of these for the first time and ended up with a bundle of string. I thought I'd mistakenly skipped a few (crosses).

    i dunno, but i think a girl who knows how to use that pink racquet might give the racquet a good run for its money. :)

    oh, and sotx has a pink racquet too.

    Haha, this reminds me of the Pink Panther cartoon where he spray-paint everything pink, including his house. I'm sure he'd love to get this pink racquet.:p

    but this one is proper bright pink. the other yonexes are more of a light pastel colour, not fluorescent like the forza:p

    For Gosen, I believe their Miracle light 77 (or 86?) does offer pink version as well. I almost got one myself. :p

    this racket isn't just a fashion accessory it is up to date with all the latest technologies, it encorporates nano technology. i think that the only reason it is pink is for marketing. i also think it is way over priced!!

    it was released to raise funds for breast cancer research (the reason for the pink colour), something that Tracey Hallam feels strongly about. Same with the pink forza shirt and grips also.

    do you know how much of the cost of the racket will actually be going to breast cancer research? and also it's still too pricey.
