Picked up a Prince "Graphite Fiberglass Graphite Comp 110" today (from Goodwill), has a 1989 Copyright on it, so it was made that year or afterwards. Looking around, ere was an early 80s Prince Graphite Comp 110 that seems well-regarded, but I'm no sure this racket is the same. It's also a different color, the early 80s being black, while this one is a sparkly dark green. I'd be curious to know any of this history of this racket, especially if it has any relationship to the early 80s Graphite Comp. And if anyone has any specs...(weight, balance), that'd be cool, too.

What's the weight and balance of the one you bought?

Any chance of a photo or two?

it's 9 & 5/8 ounces, strung, with no grip, according to my kitchen scale. I don't know how to measure balance. I suppose I could be less lazy and look it up...

Here's a cpl pics from my laptop camera. Not very fancy, I'm afraid.

You know, it's actually kind of tricky to weigh a racket on a kitchen scale. I came up with a better method than just putting in on there, and am getting a more reliable 11.5 oz. Which also feels more correct.

Looks like a second generation Graphite Comp. I have a 1st generation GC 90 that is marked 1983 and it's matte black and quite beefy.

Prince did the same thing with their mid-80s Graphite Pro. Came out with a 2nd-gen in 1990 that looked and played quite differently.

You might get more info on your stick if you post in the Classic Racquet Talk forum.
