Looks like Santa came a little early for me this year...I picked up this Prestige from thrift shop today. This racquet has 18x20 strings pattern but it has strings pattern 16 main/19 cross written inside the throat of the racquet. Is it normal?


***This is not an actual picture of my racquet but that's what it looks like***

Yeah it is the Prestige 600 that have limegreen half-cap grommets. It is lighter than other Prestige 600s. Don't know why yours prints 16x19. They should all be made in austria and 18x20.

I have seen the misprints on some batches of old Head sticks including the PT630s...

Nice find .. there seems to be many posts lately that people have found PC600, Dunlop max 200, PS85, etc from thrift shops lately. It's a season for giving. I applaud the generosity of donors, but they should realize that they could sell the racket via Criaglist for a lot more money and then denote the proceeds to a charitable organization. I guess it's much simpler or easier just to give it to a thrift shop.

I visit couple of thrift shops once in a while and have never seen any old classics other than old junks. I guess Minneapolis is not a good place to find racket treasures from thrift shops or garage sales. It's alright .. I do not expect to find them anyway. They should be denoted to the needy.
