Sorry to ask but .... what racquet is that in the middle where the strings are diagonal?
Keubler Diamant, made by S. Keubler, the genius German engineer who invented the wilson profile and all other wides. Oh yeah, he's also a leading racquet collector, author, and historian...basically a living God...
That looks like a definite collectors item.
Your Prestige Pro has 'balls'
I tried to neuter it but the old vibrazorb dampeners leave a gummy residue after 20 years. Vibrazorb was superb, it killed vibration better than rubberbands but didn't totally mute, kill and homogonize feel like rubber dampeners. I remember Prince came out with a yellow vibrazorb after these originals, and soon the foam dampeners were lost forever to rubber ones which looked cooler, but did the needed job too well... let's bring back the puffy dampeners, tennis needs more balls these days!!!
kind thanks to my buddy Bob, for this perfect specimen of a US Prestige Pro,superb!
^^ it sort of reminds me of Mr. Bill, now (balls are now eyes)
memories, ....can't forget

Wait...you tried to neuter your balls?
Hmmm..I am glad the Keubler is not stuck in a dark leather-smelling closet lol
Here's a pic of the Diamant against the background of my Van Gogh...jk..it is painted by my mom
Have U hit with it yet, Dan?
Plasma, by any chance, do you have a Wilson Graphite Matrix? I'm looking for a few...
just traded my last matrix, sorry...someone offered me a graphite matrix which I've never tried, I'd love to try the wilson reflex 85 as well,but more than any other, I am looking for an 85 square inch Chris Evert autograph mid...I saw an OS and it looked like an Ultra, sounds like the mid might match my current love, the stars and stripes...a great, great racquet...makes the loudest "pop" ever...feels just like a prestige or puma winner, elastic on the inside...
