View Full Version : Wimbledon Boron Pro

Anyone know the specs of this old racquet? I just picked one up really cheap off of e-bay. I haven't received it yet, but I'm really curious to find out how it plays. It looks very similar to the Prince Boron with the two stabilizing bars in the throat. Have any of you guys ever played with this racquet?

I guess no has heard of it. Here's a picture of the racquet if you're curious. Maybe it'll jog someone's memory...

I was under the impression that Wimbledon racquets were Prince knock offs anyway? Maybe it's just a Price Boron with a paintjob!?

I was under the impression that Wimbledon racquets were Prince knock offs anyway? I believe this is true and as such, the specs were attempted to be pretty closely matched to offer a cheaper alternative to the popular model :wink:

Later though they introduced the HM 88 and HM 98 which were really good rackets.

I had hit with the Prince Boron years ago, not the Wimbledon racquet. All I can remember of the Prince was it was light and very unstable. I couldn't understand why anyone would hit with it instead of the POG because the Boron was pretty damn expensive.
