    probably true - if you think about the lack of choices for sooo many years, it is probably a woodie and this was one of the most widely used in its day.

    I believe the Kfactor 90's and 95's are the most popular atm.

    Wilson Pro Staff 85 or as others pointed out, the jack Kramer wood.

    Remember the Pro Staff 85 has now been selling for over 23 years.

    More Jack Kramer Autographs were sold than any other racquet according to TENNIS Magazine.

    by looking back the past 20-30 years, I think Wilson has some dominance over other brands.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Babolat PD series is near the top. You see a ton of them everywhere you go.

    These people have no business playing with frames the pros use. They are all posers.

    When I first started playing tennis I just bought the racket I thought Agassi used. How was I suppose to demo a racket and find what level of feel, control, power, etc I liked when I didnt even know how to play. :-D

    yup. i would say that babolat is the most popular racquet in that crowd right now. between nadal's and roddick's racquet they are getting all types of hype.

    It's interesting that some posters seem to believe that time only began when they themselves started playing tennis.

    In the U.S., perhaps - but I'd have a hard time believing that the Kramer Autographs outsold Dunlop Maxply Forts worldwide.
