I just bought a prince woodie like new (used less than a month) for $15... This guy kept it in a closet for almost 20 years

I canīt wait till I get my hands on it, gonna post pictures

Anyone had any experience with one?

I have the Woodie frame, which was once VERY popular in the Pro Doubles Circuit. Just one word of advice. Don't string it very tight. It turns into a board at about 60 lbs. I have mine at 45 lbs with 17 gauge string. The racquet is fast thru the air, and turns over quite nicely. It is a beautiful frame!

I wouldn't use a poly in it either. Mainly because they can really cut into the wood. I'd use a multifiliment or natural gut if possible. If not, find some old 15g string.

I have one too. It plays quite well. Feels a little fragile if you hit high on the stringbed.
