    Excellent! Thanks to this we don't have to search through your various RDC logs. Great idea!

    P.S.: Do you happen to have a Yonex RX-32 (oval shaped head)???

    P.S.2: You missed a slash at "Dunlop Max 200G Pro 387/13.657/32/349"

    Very nice Dino, great job !

    Can you tell the specs of the Vantage racquet (maybe you mentionned it elsewhere, if so I'm sorry) ?

    1) No, not yet... I do have an oval shaped OPS 32, however. I'm not sure what the different lines of racquets were like with Yonex at that time.
    2) Thanks. Fixed.

    Thanks.
    I probably haven't mentioned the "official" specs, so here you go:

    Unique code: 2211111
    95 sq in, 16x19, 63RA, 27", 330 g/11.64 oz, 315 mm
    My specs:
    348 g/12.28 oz 60RA 328SW

    A little reminder that the "official" Vantage specs are unstrung, and mine are strung.

    I beleive that 2 rx's were released as a mid similar to the ps 85. The oval face with yonex graphics didn't inspire confidence. If only we knew what we were missing out on at the time....

    Thanks. Great info. It's amazing that the flex rating varies form 40 to 70. As for me, I prefer rackets in the 50ish range for my tender elbow.

    Awesome start to a great reference!

    I'd love to see the flex of a Head XRC!

    Well, they actually range from 22 to 80, or 31 to 80 if you only count graphites. The "31" racquet, a Rossignol FGC is actually one of my favorite racquets to play with.

    Thanks! I'd love to get my hands on a Head XRC...

    Great list - nice to see how the old Slazenger Silhoutte measures up as I used to use that. Are the static weights for strung or unstrung?

    Strung, unless I have made a note. I'm going to add a bunch of racquets later, which are NOS. Those are all unstrung, and I'll be sure to let you know in the stats.

    I think it is a good idea to store specifications of all rackets in one place at this site (instead of threads or posts scattered all over)

    So do I, hence this thread.

    EDIT: OK, now I see what you mean. First I thought you just meant my specs.

    Excellent compilation!

    I noticed a typo in the list:
    Dunlop Max 300i 342/12.06750/318 (NOS, unstrung)

    Is that '7' supposed to be a '/' ?

    Is that "Head Radical 630 Candycane" actually the first Radical (tour 630 (European name), or trisys 260 MP (USA name), or bumblebee (nickname)).
    Anyway, this is probably the best post on this forum. Thanks, Dino...

    Hi Kalic,

    Sorry about the late reply. I've just changed the names in the list as the names were confused. The "Zebra" is the first generation Twin Tube and the "Candycane" is the second generation Twin Tube, I believe.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've also added new racquets. Please check the list for:

    Major Mid 25
    Rossignol F200 (Green)
    Rossignol F200 (White)
    Rossignol F210
    Rossignol F340 (Another one, listed as (2))
    Donnay Pro Ceramic 1
    Donnay Borg Ceramic
    Donnay GTI-25
    Donnay Pro 35

    Wilson Stars and Stripes 85 360/12.70/71/334

    I didnlt realize the stats bet these two sticks were so similar, interesting that Courier didn't want anything to do w/ the stars n' stripes... wonder what the key difference is... Maybe I have to hunt down the S&S 85

    .

    the head xrc is a great frame, a little tough to get the swing speed up on my forehands but lots of control and a plush feel, excellent for volleys, i usually end up hitting a few off the frame though each session

    Wow... Pretty impressive racquet. I have played quite a lot with the PC600 and a little bit with the PT630 and this felt a little bit like a combination of the two. Firm and solid are the key words.

    Great job putting together all these stats.
    Wish I could bring bye a few more dozen interesting classics to add to these. Like Bud, I like to find the specs on the Head XRC. Another flexible log is the PDP racket. Are there any racket that are in the 20 range for flex ? I suspect the slaz phantom maybe that flexible. Just noticed:

    Rossignol R30 370/13.05/22/345

    I could really hold onto some balls with long strokes using that R30 :)

    Ahhh, that one:)

    Am amazed it is that flexy!

    Fantastic looking racquet by the way, I will give this a go, and test to see if it plays this flexy (thanks to Bud by the way):)

    That phantom is a beauty and I have one as well - one of my more spectacular buys for the princely sum of $2!

    I understood that it didn't last long in production, because it tended to break easily.

    Dino, any chance you can add the Chris Competition to the list? Unfortunately I can't offer any stats except the weight, which is 12 oz (or thereabouts). But the flex certainly seems to be low, surely less than 45.

    Some of those Donnays are really flexy, but 19 does seem ridiculously flexy:shock:

    Yeah, rather flexy... It's wood though, but even so very flexy.

    Well, I have made a point to only include my own racquets, so I wasn't planning on adding anything else. At least not at the time being.

    Hey Dino, did you mean the Fischer pro classic 90, the third generation of the vacuum pro, grey and red in the upper hoop? I own one, very nice frame. Thanks.

    Thanks, pshulam.

    I thought the BA is much stiffer than 56. I mean, it feels very stiff to me.

    It's probably more in the low 60s.

    Yes, that Volkl weights strung 351 grams, balance 32.8 cm, flex 48, swingweight 339. Do you remember Andrey Chesnokov playin' with it in the beginning of his career? Really beautiful frame, just reminds me the Volkl T9-30(plane red).

    Seems unreal ! Is it the case also for the 90 version ?
    I noticed that depending on the year patent, the specs (weight, balance > sw) vary alot.
    Made that comparison between GP90 "patented 1978" and "patented 1986"

    I'm about to get an avenger soon ! Cant' wait !!

    Good luck with your Avenger!
