    Just curious as to what's the most unique racquet, in feel or for appearance, you've ever played with.

    I'd have to say the old Dunlop Max 200g...feel was so old school and unique...

    It may be the norm to others, but Prince Michael Chang Graphic OS. That extra long 28" kinda throw me off a bit...

    Head Club Pro Mid (89.5) from the 80's. The upper hoop of the racquet is so flexible that you can feel it bend back when you make the contact with the ball. Old school but love it.

    Head xrc, the size of a wood racquet, but made of fiberglass. The gut strings were like, 8 years old and super loose and i was hitting monster serves, but I couldn't hit the sweetspot on groundies to save my life. It was a really fun racquet and I still have it, lol. I can totally see why McEnroe used a tiny racquet head his entire career, great for volleys

    Jenro Twin Racket

    Racquet that comes apart at the throat and splits into two separate pieces. Comes with one shaft and two heads. Hits nice. Very comfy racquet. Lots of spin with open string pattern. Fits into back pack for carry-on.

    Nova two handler racquet.

    Had two grips and the head was attached to the grips at an angle. Very wierd. Powerful stick. Your hands were on top of each other, not very comfy with two hands, but actually a fine racquet with one hand. Had to hit two fisted shots like Jim courier's back hand.

    Prince Woody I once had was pretty unique. Stupid, but unique.

    Head XRC. As long as I don't frame or miss the ball it's just magic. The Max 200G's too, I'd consider them as the best frames ever made.

    Bancroft Executive. My mom's first ever frame, she got it when she was 8. (She turns 50 next month). Still in pristine condition and the original gut was in there as well. Amazingly flexible. Fun to volley with.

    I've hit with the Snauwaert Ergonom too, and it is weird. I've hit with a Blackburne Double Strung OS, and it too, felt different. I have a Jenro, but haven't hit with it yet. I've strung up some spaghetti stringjobs, and they are a trip to hit with, but the strings broke in about 15 minutes. I've never hit with the "Handler" (the 2-handled racket), but I'd sure like to. I played an entire season with a Pro Supex MP 3 Uniflex and got a lot of comments about it too. All fun to hit with, probably not to compete with.

    Madraq , midsize head 92 sqin I think, rather thin beam , 18-19 mm ,flexy but heavy 350 g with leathergrip.

    If you can swing the beast it has plenty of power and spin is easy to achive with the unique string pattern..

    I played with this racquet for about a week at the end of my school's tennis season. It was ridiculous. I served great, but it was sooo flexible.
