Does anyone know if the first generation POG OS has different specs than later versions. I have the old one and love it. I remember trying a newer one and thinking it felt diff but wasn't sure?

Based on earlier posts on here, some people believe the newer ones have a stiffer feel.

The average stock weight was heavier, closer to 12.75 oz. on average. I don't know if that's strung weight or not, but either way, it's heavier. In my experience, feel-wise they're the same, to the extent one can omit the weight differential from that analysis.

I have both so I can tell you that the new one is a bit heavier and play a little more solid than the older version. But, I prefer the older version because of the flex and feel of it.

Most people in this forum think the older one is heavier but through my experience, it's quite opposite. I like them both though.

DO the grommets and bumperguard off the new ones fit on the grommetless old ones?

It should since it's basically off the same mold.

I do not think they are all have the same mold. Which one do you have? Made in USA? The grommetless? How many dot & what color above the "i" of the prince?
I do not know which one is heavier, because I never tried the newer/later one after 1983.

I have the 1977 (made in USA, grommetless, tear drop shape, single hand grip), and the 1983 (bumperguard, thicker beam, two handed grip, feel heavier & stiffer). The shape/mold, feel, and weight is different between these two.

The old one - "Prince Graphite 110" is balanced more closer to even and has a higher static weight. I myself am not a big fan of oversize frames, however for someone who plays exclusively from the baseline (even better on clay), it's a good stick to use.

Stormwolf, just FYI, the (Mid) after "Prestige Classic 600" is redundant. ;)

Just want to make it clear for people who don't use the metric system :).
