    Hi, I am new to the site and specifically came to ask this particular question. I have an adidas barricade tour as one of my backup rackets and one that i generally like to play with in the beginning of the season as it helps improve my consistency and arm strength(compared to my aeropro). Unfortunately they are hard to come by and no longer available new, which has forced me to look for a copy or similar racket. I was wondering if there are any vintage rackets out there with similar specifications to the adidas.(12.2oz strung, 7pts headlight, 95sqin.,64RA, 338 swingweight, 18x20.) The closest modern copy i could come by was the dunlop aerogel 4d 200, but those are also no longer available. I know i could find a new copy, but I am hoping to not spend over 100 on one. (I acquired this adidas from tw for 20 dollars when they stopped selling them.) I see the old graphite heads, princes, etc. and was wondering if any of those have similar specifications. Thank you for any help!

    Do you know of any other pro staffs with an 18X20 string setup. and similar size? I may have found an adidas in decent shape on ****, still two days left on auction. If it goes for too much I will still be searching.

    Are you residing in the USA or Europe ?

    I can check out the M1 from MegaAge. This is a high quality PS 6.1 Classic clone.
    There is also an M2 model which is the same mould only lighter.

    Give me a day or two to do the math.

    Go to the used section, there are plenty of 200';s for well less than a hundred string.
    Even the new section, under Dunlop.

    Wilson Pro Staff Classic (6.1) 362/12.77/71/334

    This is racket pretty close to the specs he wants:

    Yonex RDX 500 Mid 336/11.85/65/316

    Or maybe this racket:

    Volkl C10 Comp mp 340/11.99/66/340
