How much did you pay for them both? They look like nice vintage PK player's racquets. Let us know how they are when you have a chance to play with them :)

this week i will pick up the frames and restrung them, because the strings are veeeery old.
On paper, the racquet look like a classic mid players frame: 80%graphite/20%fiberglass, thin beam, 16x19 string pattern, leather grip and a classic "POG like" style (i love crossbars! :) ).

Im still looking for information about the weight, balance and stiffnes (i dont have the chance to find a pro shop with RDC machine in BS AS)

I'm sure they will hit wonderfully... like many of the older PK player's racquets with the same composition 80/20. What did you pay for both of them?

Is the racquet a 90 or 95? It almost look like a mid+.

The racquet is the "Pro Tour Ace 90", so, i pressume is a 90 :)
I`ve to meet the seller this week. About the price, is a fair price for both parts, but i could`t tell you, because involves a trade for non tennis stuff (i`m giving him a sega dreamcast w/games that my brother dont play anymore, for my is wortless)
