...over 10 years ago. Has anything changed? I had elbow surgery in 1998 for lateral epicodilitis (tennis elbow). I loved the racquet but think it partly caused my TE. If the new version is more damped I'd definitely be interested in one again. Right now I play a Volkl Catapult V1 MP and OS. They are very elbow friendly and are excellent racquets. There's just something about my old Prince graphite that I've not found in a racquet since I sold mine years ago. I'm not sure what that "something" is but I'll know it if I find it again.:D

Don't listen to Danny, he's just being a butt. :P
That is a POG and from what I´ve read on these boards, it is very arm friendly so you should like it. If you are in the US then you can demo one from TW and see if you want one/a few of them.

that is the POG.

You will know if its a POG because of its color, who used it (Michael Chang) and its frame type.

Its a great stick, more flexible and heavier than most of todays rackets so it will be easier on your elbow. It will also last much longer than the current rackets made so you cant go wrong buying more of these POG classics.

The old POG and the new POG initially feel the same. But it appears there is some extra weight in the hoop of the racquet on the old POG making it slightly more head heavy making it a little more depanding to swing but has quite a bit more heft behind the shots. The new one DEFINITELY swings like but still has the same crisp feel but smoother. I'll probably put a little lead at 3-9 to simulate the same feel as my old POGs. But both great racquets!


Its really nice to hear people starting to talk about the POG again and people getting interested in it!

I have the 4 stripe version and measured the stiffness (RA #) the other day. Came out as 69 in contrast to 66 on the TW site. Anyone else feel that the TW's spec is a bit low?

I have no reference so I have no clue. My POGs have been heavily played with and it shows. And my new ones feel stiffer than my old ones although I've never messured the stiffness.
