    I know there are 100s of Rossignol F200 threads out there, but I just got one! I am so happy!
    I have been after one of these for such a long time, and a coach at my club happened to have one, and in great condition, only a few scratches.

    Anyway, I just thought I'd share it with you all!

    are you just looking for a playable F200, or specifically the Mats Wilander version one?

    Be careful - just like a bad mistress - you will go back to her and back to her and back to her........

    Here's my new baby:)

    It has bamboo on the sides, and is really light, made by Taisports!

    I know nothing about it, probably awful to play with, but it does look great, and only cost about $10:)

    I apologise for posting this photo in this thread, but was too lazy to start a new thread, sorry.

    Have you played with it yet? Mine is strung far too loosely, but it's natural gut, so I've kept it in there. But I think the F200 is easily one of the best racquets ever produced. It might even be better than the Pro Staff 85.

    Here's a crappy photo of mine...

    as a 10 year wilson original prostaff user that played college tennis and still rated a 5.0 not bad for an old fart like me...i concur...its the best hitting racket out there in my opinion....great access to spin , flexible too the point to where you have no fearof hitting long... weight is so heavy but good... someone on here stated that its very" pillowy"...i like that...and again i agree with that..just a delicious frame thru and thru...
