Since it is more aerodynamic for something to have a smoothed edge instead of a flat edge like a square:

Is it allowed for a racket to be smoothed a bit near the edges for people who use their loop a lot.

If it is allowed, do you think it is worth it?

Hi Bennett,

I don’t think it would be allowed.  The rules about the racket says that the surface has to be flat.

The rule is:

2.04.01  The racket may be of any size, shape or weight but the blade shall be flat and rigid.
