    I have them!! :)

    I did also play the Elektra when they were new, for the '88 clay season, where its added flex was useful (it wasn't as sharp as the Elite on the volley due to that flex). Overall I thought the Elite Pro was the better performing frame (for me) and kept with them for quite some time. Still my favorite Head frame of all time.

    Muahhh... one of these days I'll pick one of the Elite Pro's up. They are tough to find.

    the prestige pro has no spin potential whatsoever. On flat shots however it outperforms anything currently on the market for accuracy. Elektra Pro and PC 600 have modern manuverability and response..
