    I believe this is a 28" in. model, with a 102 sq. in. headsize.
    I am specifically curious as to what the unstrung weight in grams is (300, 310, 320, etc.), what the stringing pattern is (18x20, 16x19, etc.), whether Head was using their standard "rectangular" grip mold on this frame, and lastly how firm the flex is. Thanks in advance for any info.

    I loved this racquet and used it back in 1999, 2000, 2001.
    I wish I could get a hold of a few in decent shape.

    After some research, it appears the std. length version has an 18x19 string pattern, but would still like confirmation on the XL model.

    A Instead - I just picked up a new one out of curiousity. Shoot me an e-mail so I can contact you if it ends up not being my cup of tea.

    i have one in good condition and maybe i might sell it. don't really use it but keep it as a 3rd backup. It is a nice frame actually. good weight and remarkably stable even against 5.0 hitters. no lead needed at all. I posted earlier about how I've had the same strings on it for a couple of years and they haven't broke. not sure about the specs. says made in Austria but that is all. 50-62. strange racquet put out by head and there really isn't anything that similar.
