I thought you wanted the 31" model with the 500 swingweight! :shock:

BB,s are not that bad the 28in has a thin hoop with a power level of onlly 950 or 1000 so it has a reasonable amount of control. I think the Prince white has an 1100 power level and that is a players frame.
I have seen a few on the Bay

Thanks for the input.. the newer BB's are not the same.. Really want the Green/Blk 29" 131". I'm persistant (stubborn?) and I'll keep trying! Any further input is appreciated!

So which "tour" would this racquet have been used on? ;) You have to love the panache of Gamma calling a 131 square inch racquet a "tour" model.

It was created for the Giant's Tour :p

Imagine Ivo Karlovic wielding the original 32" long, 130 sq. in. Big Bubba on court? :shock:

Gamma Big Bubba
Head Size: 130 sq. in.
Length: 32 in.
Weight: 9.5 oz.

is this for hitting or nostalgic purposes? I have a ridiculously oversized stretch prince. Some girls from SoCal saw it tonight and confirmed it was 9/10.

Abbey was amazed that it was 29" and 116 and not 130 and 32", "wow" she said..."it's so big!!!" Abbey, seemed very friendly and innocent but her friend Devon had obviously hit with 'big bubba' plenty of times in the past and seemed far less enthusiastic...

they're as real as "sex panther" 60% of the time...it works wevery time...back then it was about pushing the envelope and new innovations in design and engineering. Why has consumerism affected the creativity and design level of racquets so negatively? one year Fayva sells puma for 23.99$ (plasma was heartbroken after mustering up the courage to ask Mom for such an expensive pair, because his israeli feet were waaaay too wide for the cool looking Pumas). The next year Nike comes out with $100 air Jordans. To me that was the start of the end...cars, politics, fashion, we would all be clones or labelled as radicals henceforth...
we escaped the radiation and found a small bunker where we could build a colony, forge for graphite, and keep the ways of the eastern forehand, long live classic racquet talk...our morrow-morrow land.

No offense.. But exactly WHY do you want THIS abomination of a racquet? There are quite a number of extended length super OS granny sticks available on the market today...
