    Hi, Does anyone have specs on the older Pro Kennex widebody line of the following racquets:
    Graphite Prophecy 95, 100, and 105
    Graphite Prophecy II 95
    Power Prophecy
    Ceramic Prophecy

    Looking for beam width, stiffness, and weight.

    I don't have the precise specs, but I can make a prediction of what they will be.

    :lol:

    I'm looking for which one is the stiffest and most powerful with a solid feel.

    I have the Graphite Prophecy 105. Mine is about 12.3 or 12.4 ounces strung, with TWO overgrips. The beam width is about 25 mm or 26 mm (constant width).

    I couldn't tell you the exact stiffness, but it's more stiff and powerful than I prefer, so I use it strictly as a backup racquet. It seems like it is a good racquet for doubles -- volleys are solid and powerful.

    I had a pair of Ceramic Prophecy's in the early 90's and that was the first time I experienced arm pain.

    I still have a Bronze Ace, Silver Ace, and a Ceramic Ace...all in pretty good condition.

    The graphite prophecy was my first 'real' racket as a kid. I loved the green and white paint streaks. It's long since smashed and thrown on the roof of my high school, so in a fit of nostalgia I bought one on that auction site a couple months back. No stiffness rating on the shaft though.

    If you're looking for an older model, stiffer widebody PK, I thought the Laver S was pretty good for what it was. It wasn't exactly a heavy stick, but it hit a nice ball and the response was good - certainly much better feeling than the Pure Drive.
