Game racquet with slide on, cushioned handle

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6406388.

A tennis racquet includes a frame with a head and a shaft portion. The shaft portion has an outer periphery with outside surfaces arranged generally in an octagonal configuration. A handle includes a preformed core or "pallet". The pallet is molded of a solid elastomeric material, e.g. thermoplastic rubber, with a hollow interior having surfaces sized to conform to the outside surfaces of the shaft portion of the frame. Further, an array of holes is formed on the outside surface of the pallet, in selected gripping areas, for a comfortable grip and to reduce shock and vibration. The pallet may include an overwrap, such as cloth-backed polyurethane, which is preferably soft and flexible enough to retain feel of the pallet.
