    Looking for specs: sw, stiffness, composition (80/20 written) and any review or experience you might have had with this racquet. I know it's 16x18 and the one I saw weighted at 315g (grip size L2)

    There are some good photos of it at this German site. (20 euros was a hell of a sale; I bet it didn't last long.)

    I've bought the one that was on **** auction (from Portugal). The price including shipping was 70 USD, but the racquet is old stock from the store, unused. Currently waiting for it to arrive.

    Interesting, but there is almost nothing to be found on the net for this racquet from the user perspective, no user reviews, experience...frankly idk what to exactly expect from it. But I love Princes from 90's (love those wonderful designs as well), and off course I love this traditional feel.

    Since I'm a strictly recreational player who never trained tennis it will be interesting to see if it will fit my game since it may be slower (more flex) than what I'm used to play with. However I'm willing to do modification with lead to get it where I want. Also I'm pretty confident with this head shape/size since it resembles the head shape and size of Prince Precision Spectrum MP, which I still own (nice head shape with good width, great sweet spot, nice precision).

    My brother used the 640 for a time. It was a good solid stick - no bells or whistles. Typical players style stick - you get out of it exactly what you put in. Felt a little stiffer than 61 to me and also a little muted (but that could have been the strings).

    I thought I posted before...anyway, thanx galain ;) muted feel was probably due to a vibration dampener grommet at 6 o'clock:

    Oops - I may have confused myself. I'm thinking of the green and purple model with the crossbar - the former Medvedev frame. I always thought that was the 640. Sorry about that - not familiar with the model you posted.
