First spotted this in November 2016. It was originally called the Black Knight Great White Doubles and was marketed for hardball doubles. Looks like they changed the name to the Demon, although the racket cosmetics appear unchanged. I guess people were using it for singles too and Black Knight didn’t want to pigeonhole it. There’s also a companion teardrop Black Knight Great White Surge racket.
From the product description:
The Great White Demon has a thick bridge and throat, and Power Surge to the shaft, to make this racquet a powerful choice for doubles. If you are serious about your doubles game this is the racquet to use, with its increased stiffness, added power and enhanced vibration dampening attributes. In addition to the Power Surge shaft it also features Black Knight’s latest technologies such as NCT, Power of 6, 16K and BK’s Thermal Core technology. The Great White Demon is strung with Ashaway SuperNick ZX.
Designed for the advanced to professional player. This is John White’s choice for hardball doubles.
