    I know there are a number of people who would like to see a 90" (or 89, 87, 85, what ever) Donnay especially in the new dual core. (and preferably in a 16x20 pattern!)
    So if you'd like to see this speak up and add your name to the list!

    94 isn't close enough to 93 for you?

    That's old school mid. 93 is the new 85.

    but no one makes a 93...so I guess what you meant to say is 93 is the new 89.5.

    Let me get this straight, 93 is actually less than 90 - which is what you want - but 94 isn't small enough?

    If Donnay comes out with an 85, I'll certainly make the leap.

    I haven't tried a 94, but I did hit with the X-Red 99 today. It played a lot smaller than a 99, so I can't imagine the 94 being much different from a traditional mid.

    Thank you. I knew I wasn't insane when I though the same thing about the Donnay 99s.

    the platinum is just a freaking amazing weapon.

    Its like a samurai sword....pure poetry.


    I LOVE that racquet.....I am just not worthy.

    I dare say I evem like it better than the pro staff Sampras.......is that a sin to say??

    I think the technology is so good on the platinum I think it would be even better in an 85 inch....you heard right.....85 inches!!

    While I have no preference in the matter, I'm curious, as to why a 85-90 sq in racket, just in specs, alone, would convince some of you to (basically) automatically purchase it. Why not 80, or 75, or just go back to the old wooden rackets? Not trying to stir it up, just curious as to what's lacking in the current 90-95s, that many of you think would be cured in a 85-90.
