    Hi. First of all, I`ll introduce myself. I`m Darío, 19 years old and I`m from Argentina. I started taking tennis lessons when I was 13, and took them for two years, until I started high school and had no time for the lessons.
    Two months ago, I decided to pick up the racquet again, I put new strings on it, and started playing with some old friends from the lessons.
    The thing is, I`m used to this Prince Tournament Graphite 90 (bought it used from my teacher), but I wanted to buy another racquet (I have only one).
    I started looking for some specs of this model, but I found nothing. Only some racquets that seem to be from the same era (Prince Powerflex Graphite 90, for example) for sale.
    So, the question is: Does anybody from here know something about this model? Some specs like weight, stifness, etc etc? Is it a good racquet? (by this I mean that it isn`t a begginers model). If I want to buy one, which actual model plays like (or close to) this racquet?

    Thanks in advance. I`ll post some pics:

    I'll be the official welcoming committee: WELCOME!!! :) :) :)

    As for your racket, never seen it before. I've heard of it, and from what I recall, I think it weighs in at around 12 ounces, is of moderate stiffness (64 I think it was?) and was similar to the POG in some ways. It's by no means a beginner's racket by today's standards, but then again, a beginner can play with anything. You racket will be a little more challenging racket to play with than many rackets on the market, but it should serve you well, as long as you have good technique. Like many mids (a racket with a headsize of under 93cm squared), good footwork, technique and preparation are needed. You'll find playing with a mid challenging, but very rewarding!!!

    Go to the top of this page where it says members list. Click it. Go under C and click his name: Chris_in_Japan. You'll find a page that has the option email this user (or something like that). Click it, and email away!
