    It is a green, thin-beamed graphite racquet, also with a green grip that looks quite similar to those on Max200Gs..
    Anyone familiar w/ it by any chance?
    Thanks in advance!

    :) Sure, Jon. Not a photo, but four spanking photos. J
    Judging by the fact that nobody seems to be familiar with it, must be an "off the beaten path" racquet...But it sure is sharp, as its name "pro boron" suggests!

    Cheers mate:)

    Great looking racket, I've never seen anything like this before from Dunlop (with that type of throat). Looks like a late 80's racket. I wonder if anyone knows anything about it?

    No problemo...Yeah, it looks like from 80's. Even the tone of green matches Don Johnson's beach slippers from Miami Vice :)

    If anyone, it will be Virginia I guess.
    Or anyone who has that $139 tagged kuebler's book of tennis racquets :)

    I always forget I've actually got that Kuebler book, will take a look, but reckon that racket is too late for it! Will take a look now:)

    No it doesn't mention it in the bible:)

    It may be too late (book only goes up to about 1990), but really would have thought this would have been a late 80's rather than an early 90's racket?

    Also once you start reading that book, it really is difficult to put it down, it really is amazing (even though there are quite a few annoying errors), but it really is an absolutely remarkable book:):)

    ..still no revelations from any prophets?
    wow I am surprised because this stick looks like a clone of 6.0 85, very sharp 80's pro player racquet looks, and nobody seems to know anything about it so far...

    I think you have them stumped this time!!!

    Maybe this racquet is a true revelation, a racquet miracle:):)

    (Realise it's not a Dunlop Revelation)

    by comparison head size is about 90 sq in
    slightly HL balance. wt 332g.

    designed in Australia and made in Taiwan

    not mentioned in Kuebler's book but quite a few 80's/early 90's rackets were not because of the almost limitless variations on the same frame (especially the 81 and 89.5 sq in Head rackets).

    i bought mine from a guy in Australia - it's the only one i've seen save the on posted by gymrat. :shock:

    ...And the Almighty finally solves the conundrum and the mystery :)
    Btw- if anyone is interested, this racquet is available for sale. It needs a home with a collector, not me. Thanks.

    You betcha! to tell the truth, I kinda pre-judged the racquet freak by his lowish post count, and wasn't expecting he'd be the Almighty. Just to find out, he is only second to intergalactical god, Kuebler lol
