They look fine, though close-ups would probably better determine its condition...

These are the originals, not the ones from TW, these are probably made in Belgium, if you find the right buyer they are worth over 100$ a piece cos they become rare these days. Fine sticks!

Yep these are the original ones circa 1995, not the TW special make up copy, I would say over $100.00 each.

I doubt it, they look like the Oversize with the International PJ.
I rather have a new Orange one from TW.

In the end, they are worth as much as someone is willing to pay for them.

The really sought after Pro one is the original MidPlus with the Orange/Grey PJ.

Yes they are oversize, it's quite clear.

They are the oversize, they are the originals labeled Made In Belguim.

What do you mean you doubt it? The Pro One & the Pro One International were both made in Mid Plus & Oversize with the International being a softer RA.
The TW Special Make Up is nothing like the Originals.

What I mean is that they are not that sort after. Especially that PJ - very dull. See them on eb*y go for no more than $50 each at best.

Collectors snap up the Orange or Yellow Original Pro One because its more iconic.
Its not about whether the TW ones are best/worst than the originals.
I've been trying to get hold of an Orange Pro One MP for ages.


Im using the TW Pro One MP right now - very nice but I prefer a 100% stiff graphite one. I also owned an Original Pro One Int - not that different really.

I think the price of the Donnay Pro One's fluctuate wildly. While I agree that the orange/purple one is rare to find these days, the yellow/blue one is much rarer on eb@y. In fact, I have not seen a MP yellow/blue Pro One on the auction site in over 3 years of actively looking for one. And even when I see an OS Pro One, they always have a few defective grommets or severe court rash. The only one I saw that I regret missing out on was an un-informed seller listing an un-strung one with plastic still on the handle with a Buy-It-Now price of $150 last year, which got scooped up less than 3hrs of being listed.

If you are looking for a MP orange/purple Pro One, you just need to be patient. There have probably been 5-7 of them listed since the fall and they can be had for less than $100. One sold for less than $50 right after Christmas and the last one I saw sold for less than $75
