Hi there,

does anyone know the flex rating of the

Prince Precision Retro

I did a search here and on the USRSA Specs but couldn't find anything.

Cheers,

don't think the retro came in 95". i think just 93" and 100", like the diablo.

Here are some pics of the Prince Precision Retro.
The 95 sq. are bit more 'egg shapped' than the 93 sq. which are a bit rounder.

You can find them on the European evil bay sites as the Precision Retro was sold in Europe.
I wonder which racket is stiffer, Retro or current Diablo?

Prince Precision Retro came in 95 sq. and 107 sq.
The 95 sq. is 27" long , 16x20 pattern
The 107 sq. is a longbody 16x20 pattern

Don't know about weight, swing weight or flex rating

funny, just found it on one of the euro sites. even though it says that it's 95" on the inside of the throat, i don't know. still looks like it's 93" to me. the throat looks too long to be a 95" i mean, compare a real rebel with a diablo mid. the retro in the pic looks like a diablo. doesn't look more egg shaped, like the rebel. i dunno. pretty sure the retro also came in the 93 and 100, as it's been well reported that those are the headsizes and real frame that both capriati and malisse use(d).

How does this racquet compare to the TT rebel? How come this racquet was never that popular?

Turns out I was wrong about the Precision Retro: The mold is 93 sq.

I don't know how it compares to the Rebel TT but it's the same racket as the current Diablo Tour.

I just switched to the Retro/Diablo but mine has a Rebel paintjob on it. It the same racket that Capriati used to play.
