View Full Version : Donnay pro 1 replacement
10-30-2008, 12:53 PM
I really like my Donnay international pro 1's but unfortunately it seems bumper guards and grommet strips can not be had and maybe the racquet is being discontinued. So I need to look for a current stick that plays similar to the donnay.
My question then is, can anybody who has experience with the donnay pro1 mp recommend a current line up frame that might fit the bill?

Well one of the raquets that I like better than the Donnay is the Prostaff 95 with half inch lead around the hoop from 8o'clock to 4 o'clock. So if you can get one that's what i'd get.(mine broke and i haven't got a replacement :'( so I use the donnay pro one.)
But for production raquets, the Babolat Pure Storm was pretty amazing when I had a small time hitting with it before. It has that nice feel that you get with stuff like prostaffs and the donnays. http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRCBAB-BPSLTD.html

You might find Volkl's C10 Pro interesting. Slightly bigger, slightly heavier, slightly more pop.

I just got a second hand Fischer M Comp 95 and after my first outing with it, I quickly decided that I need to change the strings, but it also occurred to me that this racquet reminded me of my Donnays. The M Comp is probably just a notch heavier though.
Fischer m pro 1..
Look at the stats.. weight, swingweight, beam everything.. cept m pro 1 is 98.
Still it is very comparable and plays close as I have played both.

Thanks guys. I'll look into your recommendations.
I really like the donnay but those darn grommet strips. Oh well

I thought the grommet trouble was only for the os
how did it get messed up?

the redondo mid is nice and pretty similar in specs, otherwise if you've got the money you could go with vantage.

The Redondo MP is quite comparable. I can use them both without big adaptations.
