    there is a prince tour diablo mid at my local play it again that is in 9/10 condition. It's the matte black and red and it's definitely an older frame as it has the squared beams like a ps 85 or old 200g. What is this stick worth going toward my collection? Anything at all? It looked like a nice classic but more than most deals I find

    or upon looking farther, is this a classic racquet at all?

    Which size head is it?

    The mid is a fantastic racquet.

    It's getting a bit long in the tooth... but I believe TW still sells it.

    I would say no. Great racquet and on a par (for me) with the POG Mid, PS85 and Prestige Pro when it comes to performance BUT I wouldn't call it a 'classic'.

    Not even close. The thing is only a few years old.

    There will be no more classic racquets - because A) racquets today have too short a market life to reach 'classic' status B) 'technology' doesn't last more than a few years C) there are too many racquets on the market (owing largely to the short market life, resulting in periods where last year's frames are on the shelves next to this year's frames)... and, lastly, D) racquets today (the past 10 years or so) are nowhere near good enough to be called 'classics'.
