    Why does Volkl change the paint on their sticks. Probably someone in the managment, somewhere high up there who can't tell the difference between a baseball and Penn1, decided that if they cut out the "600" they are going to save a whole nickel. And besides "600" or no 600, looks pretty much the same to him, "what does the number denote anyways?!"

    Thanks but I know what the number means, I was trying to make it sound as though the CEO didn't know what it stood for. Sigh I guess I failed at making the last point.

    I was told by somebody very knowledgeable on PC600 on this board, that the "600" usually for euro market, and for USA without "600". It is true, because US got the "Prestige Classic" and "Classic mid", and the first prestige tour 600 was called "Prestige tour 300 trisys system" and later "Prestige tour".

    The later TW version has "600" which I do not know why
