    Yes that's what I said. As a senior player I still use and luv my Prince Pro. Do they make anything comparable today with the same weight distribution as the PP racquet has? I don't find the head or the handle of the racquet to be heavy. Which is good for me personally. ;)

    The prince pro OS is 107 inches headsize if I'm not mistaken and has a 16 x 19 string pattern, maybe heavier than 12 oz. and made of aluminum with a plastic throatpiece. If you want a slightly updated version, I think the most similar would be the POG OS, same dimensions, except made of graphite.

    but if you want to continue playing with the prince pro, there are loads of them being sold on that auction site, mostly going for cheap so you can stock up :)

    It's a 110, not 107.

    The Prince Pro was a great racquet. Does yours hage a two-tone leather grip? I played with one through my junior years until the Graphite Pro came along. The only problem is that if you lose your temper and smack it on the ground, the metal will warp.

    My last remaining Pro is a bit warped, and lives in the closet. The one before that suffered metal fatigue and the throat cracked. Good racquets for their time,though.
