Which one do you think is the best all time racket?
Which other ones would you add to the list?

You need to clarify whether the Dunlop you're listing is the real deal Dunlop Max 200G or the cheesy new 200Gs, which don't belong on a list anywhere near the first 3 you mentioned.

SRD Tour should be added, although I haven't hit with it. I voted for the C10 Pro, it's my favorite of those that I've tried. Never tried the RD7 either.

I couldn't find "None of the Above".

Yeah - I'd like to know WHICH 200G you're referring to, as well. If it's the original Max 200G, then it gets my vote by a considerable margin. If it's one of the newer incarnations, then it's between the Prestige and the Pro Staff - although my personal vote would be more along the lines of the Prince Magnesium 90...

Good to see you've reacquainted with the familiar name, Steve.

I'm refering to the original Max 200G.

the tour 90 should be an instant classic

The POG and PS are the only two true classic candidates on your list.

02-27-2004, 05:23 AM
Prestige Classic and POG stand out above the rest.

02-27-2004, 02:13 PM
Definetely the top two are the PS 6.0 and the PrestigeClassic! :shock:

02-29-2004, 05:12 PM
can somebody explain to me, why, if the POG is such a classic, no top player plays with it?

02-29-2004, 05:24 PM
It is the oldest racket on the list, designed over a quarter-century ago, and still bought and sold. The POG is the base racket, the "springboard" of many Prince rackets, and lots of pros use those effectively. It was the first graphite oversize or something to that affect. I think Andre Agassi used the actual oversize version at first.

Dunlop MAX 200G is the best tennis racquet ever made. It is the racquet that has won the most grand slams to this date. Its technology is the most revolutionary ever used in the making of tennis racquets.

I do concur. The Max 200G was one of the nicest racquets to play with. However, I'm still not able to get my hands on a 2nd hand one here. Therefore, I would have to go with my C10 Pro, which is a great racquet too in itself.

What year were you born?

The POG was initially released in late70s. To name a few: Gene Meyer, Paul McNamee, Chris Lewis, Agassi, Sabatini, Seles, Carling Basset, Vince van Patten, and many more.

You have to include R22, Black max, Black ace, Vacuum Pro

Definitely the POG, although from my experiences with the PS 6.0, I'd have to say that's a close second.

200GMW was a fine frame. I never got a chance to use the old original 200G.

01-12-2006, 07:20 AM
Definitely the original Dunlop Max 200G. I played with that racket from high school through my first few years of college. Unfortunately the handle is messed up otherwise I'd still play with it.

Seems like an easy win for the PS 6.0 85!!!!!

01-12-2006, 07:27 AM
PS 6.0 85 everytime!

01-12-2006, 11:20 AM
excuse me if I sound stupid. The PS i assume to be the 85 one, but the POG... Are you referring to the OS or the MP one?
