    Have you heard about the Pro Kennex Magnum Ace? It's not 100% graphite, thus it is not similar to the Black Ace. It might be similar to the Silver Ace?

    silver ace and black ace are same fam, not having my camera is killing me as I have the complete line (almost)
    correct me if i'm wrong (highly likely)
    black ace 100% graphite
    silver ace 80% graphite 20% fiberglass
    bornze 60/40
    copper 40/60...
    strung up a badass silver ace I got for $3, specwise it looks like it will beat the dog-poo out of the ps 85, same small head but even a thinner beam...Is magnum ace a mid?

    I'd rather see pics of the PK Magnum but this photo reminded me how awesome MPI was, it was the colorful marginal characters that made it so interesting, the whiny and mischevous hustler: Rick. The mellow and genuine Chopper pilot and buddy T.C., Thomas Magnums endless supply of fresh Kournikova grade females, and the serious, yet absurdly stuffy Higgins. Magnum himself was a whiny woddy Allen type, perfect contrast to his chiseled confident physique, like 3's company, everything worked out in the end, after all the chaos, like other shows of the time, a sense of innocence and goodness which was part of the era came thru...

    Another question:
    I heard that the PK Black Ace is very similar to PS85 in playability/feel. Is that true?

    I'm guessing it was ltd. edition and supposed to be top shelf (for pK which was comfortably less expensive than Prince and Wilson). Also looks to be in superb condition. White racquets were sooooo expensive back then. Doesn't "Magnum" usually mean BIG though...?????....ironc as it looks to be a mid....

    It's the typical 90 sq. in PK mold.

    It looks virtually unused.

Anna's games, who put those ideas in her head????? Serena can handle the love I have to give, physically, emotionally and mentally...dog eat dog cold hearted tricks, jonesin for this jonesin for that, hangin with the Joneses, I tried to teach her that's not where it's at.. sad sad truth its gonna come back around, who got Anna thinkin like that??? lemme show you how to really get down...Serena has my love now, goodbye Anna...

    Anna's a fast lane eastern european player type. I' m just a humble guy. I don't even own a suit other than the one I got for my brothers wedding. She said the money didn't matter, guess at the end it did and she hurt me becua$e she didn't know when was enough, something I learned growing up in the bannana feilds in Israel, that love is worth more than money...
