Seems like Head is pulling away from Babolat, and Wilson is falling off the map...in just the last 2-3 years.

because head are paying everyone more to spray their old rackets to make them look like head ones.
despite that, i think head rackets are very good and i wouldnt change mine

i never liked head rackets but i guess Wilson is becoming a bit too popular with the KFed racket and its giving off a "only K-thing is a good racket all our others suck and if you're not Federer, you suck" aura. OR back a few months, replace the new one with the n.sixone.
