Is the RD Ti 70 the "newest" of the bunch of rackets you selected? The rest in the list appear to be all classic frames except for this one. Thanks!

Posted twice.

Anyway I was going to add that of the Tennis Mag Top Ten, I have all of them, except the Babolat. And that won't change, as I don't like Babolats. ;)

Which one is your favorite Donnay, Ericsson? I have played quite a bit with different Donnays fairly recently, and I was very impressed with the Pro Ceramic. (350 g/12.35 oz Weight - 59 Flex - 352 SW - 33 cm/4 points HL Balance - 16x19 Pattern)

Hi Dino, Pro Ceramic is awsome! have one too at home, and of course the Pro Cynetic, both from the same mould with the very thin beam.
My favorite is very hard to say, so many good sticks but if i have to pick one it would be the Donnay Ultimate Cynetic 85, very rare stick!

Plasma: The R22 is magnificent.

Has it been used?

of course it's been used, how could I not hit with such a fluid natural perfect beauty???

the r 22 has totally modern playability. I would only touch 2 90's: the vac pro 90 and the yoneyama gold (R 22). I would be honored to meet members of the esteemed Yoneyama tribe at some point, and discuss with them the history of this unique and perfect company...dommo arigato Yoneyama San, many years later, sir, we still muse over your sublime inventions and "crazy" patents...arigato gozaimashtah!
