    If you could only have one racquet from each major company, what would you choose?

    Head - PC600
    Dunlop - MW 200G
    • Babolat - PDRGT
    Prince - POG LB
    Yonex - RDX 500
    Wilson - SV PS 85

    I'm not asking which you think is the "best"..

    but rather which one would you "like" to have for each respective brand.

    I would like to answer this myself, but I think we should break it into 2 sections.. Former models, and latest models..

    Depends, what're you gonna give me for it? Just because I don't want to play with it doesn't mean it doesn't have monetary value to me. For a reasonable sum, I might be willing to part with it...

    Wilson: Profile, I think (One of the first HUGE widebodies that was gold color)
    Dunlop: Black Max (mint condition would be nice)
    Prince: PrincePro Oversize (could've been my first racquet)

    I like your selection here though I'd probably throw in a prestige in there for the Head.

    yeah.. on post #9 I changed my mind:

    • Head - i.Prestige

    I read a few good reviews, and thought it would be nice to try that one out as my one and only selection.

    Babolat: No racquet I can think of. Please send lots of VS Gut string instead. Thank you!

    Wilson: 6.0 85, I guess an SV since I'm only getting one stick from each co. I can sell it to a Sampras fan.

    Head: Old twin tube radical OS

    Yonex: Never tried one. Guess I'll try the RDX 500 or RDS 002 in a midsize

    Prince: This is a tough one. I use the Diablo, and I need another one. I also like the POG and Spectrum, but I am going with CTS Graduate.

    Kniessl: New Red Star

    Avery: M3

    Vantage: 12.2 oz strung, 8 pts headlight, softer flex

    Changed one of my picks..

    • Prince - POG MP

    Still a very close choice. I've been having a lot of fun and success hitting with the MP lately. This weekend, I'll bust out my POG OS for another go around.. :)

    I wonder how these classics compare to the newer Prince O3 sticks.. (White and Tour MP)

    agreed..

    (debatable if it's the best, but for sure, "If I could only have one Wilson" it would be this one.)

    Tecnifibre: TFight 335 (16x20) 95

    I wouldn't trade the ncode n6.1 for any of these. Own the Siver Ace and loved the Black Max in the 80s. I think I could learn to love the Prestige and the Pro #1, and possibly the 03 Tour. The Technifibre TFight 335 is probably similar to the Wilson and could easily be a favorite, but have never tried it. Do not prefer the Volkl or Pure Drive, have played both and didn't care for either.

    Great post, fun to think about the other racquets.

    They turned it into a cartoon? I guess that simplifies production costs by quite a bit.
