    Wasn't the Prince Vortex a very expensive racquet? Or at least very expensive for its time? $300+?

    You are correct. The RRP of it is £350, which is an astonishing $615

    It comes with its own metal Prince briefcase thing, with leather cover, limited edition certificate.

    Here it is at the shop that I do the website for:

    "Prince utilized the 2000 year old proven arch structure which distributes stress to maximize strength with minimum material and developed the O3 technology. "

    Comedy gold.
