    Hmm... is it just me, or does the head shape of that racquet just resembles an upside down traditional oval head?

    Wilson had a head shape like this at least 6 years ago. I had one.
    I can't say exactly the same because I no longer have the Wilson.

    there was a wilson sting 90....that looked like a squash racquet, i think we managed to break it it was quite light and solidly built, probably for power players

    Hmmm guys I couldn't find this racquet in Fischer website and the seller Racquetguy was selling some doubtful stuff in the past month.

    Could the description be fake??

    I think mine was a Wilson Sting Hammer. It too was very light.

    This racket claims to be 75g unstrung, which means about 80g strung. That is a light racket, but it's still 5g heavier than the Karakal SL-70, which is 70g unstrung (and with a decent-sized overgrip too).

    Also, the recommended tension of 15-18lbs is worrying. Personally I wouldn't touch it, but if the price is good.....

    Fischer has made this head shape rackets for many years.

    The first two rackets in this shape should be "Offensive" and "Power". These two rackets are introduced in 1993.

    Other than Fischer, Donnay and Kawasaki also have rackets in this head shape.

    Anyway, 75g is a new low for my knowledge.

    The string pattern seems weired. I mean, seems there are big "holes" among the strings. I was even wondering if this is a badminton racket.

    i wonder if the 16-18lb recommended tension is the true recommended tension or the actual one..

    isn't there a regulation on the racket head size?

    Yeah, the string holes are weird....seems like much lesser than regular ones....and they are bigger indeed. Maybe we can put tennis strings in it as well ?
    (but probably will not be able to play this thing with tennis balls.....too slim)

    About the regulation, I thought IBF only regulate the length and width isn't it? (not sure) the shape shouldn't matter though.
