The supersized extra length ones that even beginners are ashamed to use

In Wigmore Sports in London , i saw a Prince 03 Sovereign which is like a limted edition racket. That was about 300 GB pounds. I don't know what that is in dollars. 450?

Wasn't the Prince Vortex a very expensive racquet? Or at least very expensive for its time? $300+?

You are correct. The RRP of it is 350, which is an astonishing $615

It comes with its own metal Prince briefcase thing, with leather cover, limited edition certificate.

Here it is at the shop that I do the website for:

"Prince utilized the 2000 year old proven arch structure which distributes stress to maximize strength with minimum material and developed the O3 technology. "

Comedy gold.

I also saw it on the news a couple of nights ago. Some guy was actually hitting with it. Unfortunately I can't find a picture of it on the web anywhere.
