    Been dying for this. TW tried, but their sticks had grommet problems. I loved these beauties.

    Sold mine on **** 5-6 years ago, was basically mint condition. Was a really fun racket to blast big forehands with, one handed backhand suffered a bit. Biggest regret in my racket owning career.

    Best invention ever was the rounded grip butt cap, genius.

    Big fan of the mid-plus 95" version. I bought a number of the TW re-issue frames, actually prefer them to the original one's. My father played competitively with them back in the 90's when they first came out. Still has a few of the pink one's laying around.

    The new company doesn't have a clue. Dunlop owns the original pro-one mold and none of the old company transferred to the new owner's, just the name. The new "pro-one" is a abomination of the old classic.

    DonnayUSA only has a license to use the Donnay name. The owner is Sports Direct International. They own 19 different brands that includes Dunlop.

    for the love of john wayne and chocolate ice cream YESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i hate to say it on account of being a huge yonex fanboy, but if they did, i would bail on my rqis tours (even though i don't serve as well with an os) and use the blue and yellow pro one os and only the blue and yellow pro one os all day, every day as long as i shall live. and if ever the cosmetics were to get even the slightest smudge, i would promptly purchase a new one. and in the event of my passing, i just might leave final instructions that i am to be sent to my eternal rest with a yellow and blue pro one os.

    I have this racket but I cannot find any grommets for a decent price.
