    "Wood always gets the job done but... we are in 2020". I'm not impressed nor convinced by those silly arguments. I fail to see how in 2020 promoting plastic is the thing to do. Is this material even recycled? Could be a selling argument in itself in... 2020 actually... :rolleyes:

    Not even talking about the so called improvements "delivered" that are claimed in the video but regarding the resilience thing compared to wood. Do ne weed a resilient handle? May be I'm too old already. :confused:

    It’s cheaper. That’s what it is. Everything around it is just the usual marketing gibberish.

    I know right. It's something I understand but Victor could make a little effort in order to convince us... I mean if they would just use recycled plastic for example and label the racket "eco friendly", even if it's marketing too, there would be at least a minimum of sense involved. But that video is just substandard content.

    Why can’t a racket (handle, shaft / frame) be in one piece?

    I would be interested in trying the Drive X range, Usually the fast frames like BS/JS/AS suit me best though.

    There is a tradeoff. Back in the days and the sinking issues I would appreciate that the make frames which don't sink instead of super thin ones which are fast but not sturdy. Since the Drive series replace the Hypernano or the previous Meteor X series it is absolute fine that the rackets are a tweener between aero and box instead of a pure speed racket.

    I'm a sucker for this LGBT-colourway and like it much. Honestly speaking never take names to serious. Arcsaber, Nanospeed, Nanoray Z-Speed are also good examples that the name don't match well, but who really cares?
