    Unless I'm mistaken, that's a RDS001, right?

    Actually, I have to be honest and say that I have sold most of them, and only have a few left.. I just don't like things sitting on the wall, and when my wife became pregnant with out second child (born 4 days ago) I decided that the money should go toward him.. Although I do still have a few left that I am more than happy to part with!..

    Thanks, BP.
    The standard Borg Pro racquet is too demanding for me to use in today's world where players are using larger headsize racquets. I need larger headsize graphite reinforced wood racquets like the Midsize Borg Pro or the Jack Kramer Midsize to have a chance against with them.

    As for collecting, I already have two brand new unused and unstrung standard Borg Pro racquets in the closet :)

    You have to park it somewhere on the web (Imageshack.us, etc) and then click on the icon above the "Post Reply" box that looks like a little postcard with a mountain on it, then put the link to the picture in that box and presto!

    woodie Vs K90

    Could anyone of U collectors show a pic with a woodie on top of a K90 (Head to Head) so we can have a feel how much difference is there ?


    ps. i played a guy who bought a AK90 and hit the court the first time today. I asked him how does it feel. He said "heavier balls. more powerful shots". Who to tell ? I said "but your great topspin shots have the effect of a dropshot, i was unable to reach it before it bounced twice" :D
    After that, he hit a few into the net, the net behind me. :-D :-D :-D

    well, don't know how to say it...
    maybe ... 2 rackets put on the floor, one on top of the other. and take a photo from above, seeing the stringbed overlapping each other.

    i bet the woodie's head would be completely seen inside the K90 head.
