    Excuse me if this has all been asked before but i did a search and found only one post with a link that no longer went anywhere. I have just managed to buy 2 of these in near perfect condition and was wondering if anyone could tell me the original specs of the frame. I've weighed them in at 339grams with tournies on them. Also what string set up can someone recommend to get the most out of them. Thanks in advance.

    Here's the old link: http://web.archive.org/web/19990911201908/www2.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage.html?PCODE=PR

    339g is about right with overgrip... I like the 660 at mid with all 17g gut or gut hybrid. Doesn't last too long though with TS & slicing. BTW, How's the PR Experimental working out for you? And where did you find those new cond 660s :)??? Best Regards, Louis

    Hey Louis, i was hoping you'd respond as most of the links about the responses involve you. The Experimental is a real talking point in my collection, right up there with my Becker World Championship frame in its case and my new Mad Raq frame. I strung it up with all gut, used it once and then retired it swearing that i'd find some original responses instead. I got these 2 from a guy in Germany who i dealt with in the past, it was just good timing on my part, the right e-mail at the right time if you know what i mean. They are both strung with what looks like old hurricane at the moment but i've put an order in for gut from my dealer (who thinks i'm mad for putting it in such an old frame!) I'll be sure to let you know how they perform when i've had a good hit!! P.S I see in the wanted forum that we are competing for Ti's as well!!!

    Your dealer is mad. Let me know how your hit goes. I've been wanting to tear the cushion handles from my 660s and remold them to get a bit more raw feel...kinda pricey though... RE: PRTi's, I'm sure Prince made quite a few of those, don't you? I wonder where they went?

    I may be able to get a brand new 3/8 if you're interested...Just need to promise me a 5/8 in the future:)
    please email: michaelm101 AT sbcglobal.net if you're interested...
