    The C-1 was the same as the T-3000, but with some green trim instead of the T-3000's red trim. They differed from the original T-2000 in the addition of a brace in the throat to stiffen it up a bit.

    I'm sure jimbo would know, he's an expert on this racket. Anyway, was it a limited edition version of the T-3000?

    Here I am, have been really busy since getting back from holiday:)

    The "Jimmy Connors C-1" to give it it's full name, is as has been said above basically a T3000, with different cosmetics!

    Although the C-1 was only produced for a brief time, and is just a very cool racquet:)

    How rare are they? I never see any floating around on the boards.

    I'd say they are quite rare with the original cover!

    However, demand is low, so not really worth that much, unfortunately, as I have 5 of them:)
