    Were there any differences between the original white and the limited edition yellow Spectrum Comps? Was the weight supposed to be the same? I have a white 110 and last summer got a yellow L.E. 110 off th****. The L.E. that I got is SIGNIFICANTLY heavier than the white one. Has anyone else found this to be the case?

    If only they made the spectrum comp in 85, I mean if there was a limo with Kornikova naked inside, and an old chevy pick-up truck with an 85 square inch super limited edition spectrum comp inside, and I could chose between having either (it would be a tough choice!!!). I would WITHOUT DOUBT, run to the old Chevy and grab my new racquet.

    who made the original ugly yellow racquet??? spectrum comps were about (19)88 or 89 ish, was the (then gorgeous and revolutionary, now anachronistically ugly like a tribal tatoo) ltd edition yellow a few years before the estusa??? either way Prince blew our minds back then with holograms, new colors, technologies, materials, etc...back then more top pros used prince, there weren't even many true knockoffs (spinoffs but no actual counterfits to my knowledge): the hologram stickers were a hoax we bought gladly like Y2K.... with all these space age materials, vhs tapes explaining the Vortex SB (thanks mom), and their techno hologram star trek authentification stickers, what more could you need???? Grab a gatorade, make sure you have a vibrazorb and tournagrip and tin can of 2 tone Penn (the 4 pack!!!). Back then there was no internet, cell phones (rarely), ****, etc. it was an innocent world, we all read tennis magazine (as well as playboy and hustler as net porn had not yet graced the planet to save earth from killing trees in the name of...in the name of;
    .....moving on, tennis warehouse sent me an rd ti 70 after my vortex SB, and then a Prince Mono...
