Was there more than one version of the Prince Pro (the black painted aluminum racquet). This year, for nostagia (I used to play with one many years ago), I bought one for cheap on ****. Unfortunately it came cracked, so I just threw it away. I bought another one, but afer using it for a few sessions, and really loving the way it felt, it cracked too. My third one just came, and when I compared it to the one I still had, it was not quite the same. It was about a half an ounce heavier, and the grip and throat piece were a little more robust looking. I'm planning on buying a few spares, and was wondering - did they change the design to prevent cracking, or was that just a random variation? I kind of liked the way the lighter one felt, but if they keep cracking I guess I shouldn't buy any more. Any users still out there?
