    if you swing fast enough and make sure that you are going across the earth's magnetic field, you might be onto something.

    But the racket itself looks nice. Never seen before. It must be a very old or a very new model? NS3000 or NS5000?

    Ha, that's even stupider than me putting cable ties on my racquet head! Removed them before playing.
