    I have always wondered. I guess the question begin with this: for a particular racket, say, Head Radical Oversize Trysis 260, how many does HEAD made? Roughly, how many? In tens of thousands, or hundres of thousands, or over million, etc?

    This question can be asked for nowadays, and can be asked for in the old times, such as in the 80s. So for example how many Wilson Prostaff Classic 6.1 was ever made? (not the 6.0, because I think the later Chinese version makes the 6.0 harder to count).

    it's a great question Chang, hard to answer without insider knowledge. I often wonder which frames were made in millions, 200g, puma super, pog, ps 85....
    retro probably knows, wonder if he's allowed to spill the beans...

    My guess was in tens of thousands for regular frames. But for frame like POG OS and PS85 they have been continously manufactored so many years so it could reach much higher numbers.

    "past a million"...sounds like the annual salary of the women I'd date if I could borrow LanEvo's car for a week...
