Anyone heard about these?

Need to fill in the two letters for the **, but it essentially gives the following description:

What we have here is a Head Prestige Pro that was made in their factory in Kennelbach, Austria for one of Head's stable of pro players. One can tell that by the inclusion of the Head Finest Calfskin grip which is currently covered by Tournagrip, the black logo sticker on the butt cap (as depicted) and the code TGK238.2 inside the throat (also as depicted).

I'm asking whether the code is dispositive because one of the MGPPs I have has this code on the throat, and none of the other standard information that would typically go there (i.e. strung weight, tension recommendation, swing speed L6, etc.). It was purchased from a friend who got it from RPNY.

Then the one you have was made in Austria too, fella. I was said "seller" of said racquet on the aforementioned internet auction site. And RPNY was indeed selling the Austrian made Microgel Prestige Pros.

Yes, I have a few of these as well and I was told the same thing. Just to add, I also bought a stock retail MGPP and compared it to my MGPPs from RPNY and they hit the same except for the grip shape as I opted to get the rounder grip pallets.
