    Please excuse the selfie, had no one at hand to take the photo for me. The material is really nice - supremely smooth. Should be amongst the coldest shirts you can get, so not the best choice for those of us in cooler climates, but I really look forward to wearing this in the summer (not that I won't wear it now!)

    Oh btw I probably missed this in a previous post, but where are the details for racquets and stuff? And btw will you only make shoes and racquets or will you expand to shoes as well? :3

    After a first test in action, I can say it's not as cold as expected. It was perfectly comfortable both temperature- and material-wise. Pretty close fit for me, which is good. On the next one, maybe (just maybe) you could make the sleeves a bit tighter and/or shorter, they're not quite bothering me but a bit less would be even better
    But maybe that's because I have no upper arm size to speak of

    If you're interested, have a look at the video. Please don't judge WL products by the inferior standard of play in this - holidays and a loss of pretty much all calf muscle make for a bad first training session!

    Try telling that to Jan Jorgensen. That man is clearly a trend-setter.

    I cant win this one, can I? In a desperate attempt to change the topic - any news on the racket front?

    Haha, have your fun! Just for you, I taped today's matches - one with, one without. Surprisingly, no calf or Achilles pain yet.....

    Nah, that ship has sailed. I don't see the point anymore. After further research and experience I don't believe adding a woven element to a Bravesword shape would do very much. Ashaway has one now and I didn't particularly like it.

    My current favourite prototype has the shape of a Meteor, and the cross-section is sort of a Arcsaber/Voltric hybrid. It's not woven.

    I think using woven is a good sales tool for smaller companies, but from a performance standpoint after 20+ prototypes I'm not convinced it adds anything of significance.

    Have you tried Panda's Revelation? It's very much like a BS frame with woven carbon. Very fast and solid piece.

    Racket design looks great, I like it. T-shirt design's coloring feels a bit all over the place, but then again, personally I have a bias toward simple color-schemes.

    Keep up the great work!

    Off-topic... but your courts really really need visible sidelines!
