    Which racquet had the best graphics/paintjob ever? Here's one vote for the Prince NXG Tour. Love the green and silver!

    I kind of like the Aerogel 300, or the Bab. Aero Storm. Wilson Hyper Hammer 6.3 ain't too shabby either.

    Yonex frames have always had really excellent paint quality.

    Wilson NSix One Tour 90.

    I love the graphics on this stick. Only downside is that the paint is rather flimsy and does wear off and begin to show you the white paint under the red.

    True. I have never played with a Yonex. But I was tempted to buy Hewitt's old stick the RDX 500 mid just for the paint job. But, um didn't end up buying it. I hear it feels really nice.

    I'd consider the MW200G for the graphics.

    Come on is this even debatable?

    RQis Tour 1 has hands down the most bad ass paintjob

    I think Vantage racquets look sleek.

    On the other hand, i do enjoy the MG pj's.

    Yep, always loved the AG300 paintjob.

    But for me, its a toss up between the Babolat Aero Storm, and the Pure Storm Tour. There is something about having red on my frame and a matt finish that is a must when I look at cosmetics..

    Those Aeros look good! It was a toss up for me I stayed away from them cause I didn't like how the APDC felt. Still wana demo the Aero storm though, didn't like how the pure control felt. See to me the APDC and Pure Control were on opposite ends of the racquet spectrum and I needed something in between and the AG300 feels that void. The nBlade is a beautiful stick also.

    I liked the TiRadical. Had a glittery burnt-orange throat which really set it off well.

    Nothing beats the Head Edgewood, but the brown Prestige Pro comes very very close.

    In recent times, I thought the PK Laver Heritage C was a nice one.

    PS 85 is by the the best looking racket in my opinion. The simplicity and traditional shape makes it superior to all the other rackets I have seen.

    POG series takes the cake for me. The understated black and green is classy with no BS all over the frame. For the newer frames, I really like the paintjob of the Ozone Tour.

    The Wilson ROK was the best version of that style paint job Wilson used on several racquets with different color schemes.

    That happens to be my rec/tennis, stringing room and only special frames get to hang on the walls. The MW200g was never a go-to stick for me, but it's just so classic and pretty, I had to give her some space on the wall... :)
