    SGB: With new ownership and new ideas, has there been any significant change in the core product line up?
    MS: The racket range has been completely overhauled with a new structure that better focuses on consumer requirements for power, control or a combination of both. We've developed a number of new technologies that are brand new to the market ensuring the 2009 frames outperform anything else on the market. For example we have developed a frame with Biaxial Dynamics which focuses on frame profile and a new head shape named Optimetric head geometry. We have also developed a new type of handle constructed from carbon, replacing wooden handles which continue to be used by our competitors. Finally we have engineered grommets that provide more power, named Pro V12 Grommets, and a new end cap which is about 28 per cent lighter than the previous version. To summarise, compared to the competition we've enhanced the playability of our premium range through the use of cutting edge technology solutions. Where we had two or three technologies, we're now at a point where we have eight or nine delivering enhanced performance and consumer value for money. The 2009 range is a huge step forward for the brand, and an exciting step forward as well.

    Cool, carbon handles.

    nice to see some good new rackets, and to me it seemed obvious to replace the wooden handle... guess it must be expensive

    Okay, so speedysport.be will have the rackets end of Aug / early Sept.

    Shitty deal though. They want the money upfront and will only ship via DHL, but couldn't tell me how much it would be.

    Vapour Trail Elite is 144EUR/286SPD/184USD.

    I reckon shipping could be as much as 50 Euro.

    Go for newitts.com - should be quite a bit cheaper.

    Yeah, any experience with them? Newitts will probably have them sooner, too.

    What a beau. I love the Air-rage's color schematics.

    Newitts say July. I guess these Vapour Trail are for the European market only, like the Fireblades and Aeroblades. I need to get my hand on the Elite, it looks nice and heavy.

    I saw Dunlop 4D racquets in Bangkok and the specs are pretty similar to Vapour Trail except that it doesn't have the Optimetric head. It also says Hand Made like the Carlton.

    All racquets are handmade. Hardly a selling point, no sure why they bother. Could be handmade by a blind Chinese lepper colony for all we know.

    Most Taiwanese and Chinese rackets are 'hand molded'. i.e. stuff the carbonfibre and T-jounts + extras into the mold. And then hand painted. Is that what they call hand crafted? Not sure about Yonex though, but I guess it would probably be the same.
