    It's 95 sq. inches.
    You have to understand that Donnay developed many different rackets and models, if memory is correct this one is from the mid 90's. why dont you take some specs, not so hard to do, you just need some tools...

    looks like a personal model racquet for 90's clay courter guillermo perez roldan, probly only released in europe or south america. i have never heard of this racquet but the mold shape looks exactly the same as the old purple donnay cobalt racquets

    Thanks guys,I realised it's a rare racquet,too bad it is craked now :(
    I bought a babolat pure drive team+ instead and although it's a great racquet,all I can do in plus of that donnay is serving with more power,at the net I can not get along with.
    That's why I wanted to know the specs to find a similar spec racquet but now I will try finding the specs myself as ericsson said.

    I have just got hold of a Tournament Pro I version of the frame in mint condition.

    The head shape is exactly the same as a Pro One but the throat is much shorter hence the longer handle.

    Also the Frame is a lot thicker (23mm), aero beam and denser string pattern (18x20 ) compared to the Pro One.

    I love the PJ which is the same as the current TW Pro One OS.

    The T pro is more like a tweener and plays easier, actually perfect stick for the clay season :)

    The T Pro is not exactly light. The swing weight feels higher than the Pro One.

    I would say the strung weight is about the same as a Pro One = 12oz / 340g
    Balance = about 5 - 6pts Head Light.

    Btw is your frame orange like the OS below or pinkish orange like mine?

    That tournament pro is off the Cobalt mold, so the psecs are similar, it is a heavier model however.

    It looks like to me that the Tournament Pro is from the same mold as the Apollo Pro, Formula Pro, and the Kevlar Pro 2. I think Donnay made a quite few racquets using this mold.

    Yea they did, here in Belgium the formula pro was very popular with club players, compared to the pro one which is more demanding.
