    Hi everyone,

    I got an interesting racquet, prokennex BA TRAD mid. It looks like prostaff 6.0 85 pretty much. I strung with ASHway 18L 51/53, but too stiff for me comparing with PS85 with synthetic gut at 54 lbs.

    Who know about its history? Please share your thought.

    These are pics....

    Never seen this. Joint project by PK and Gosen?

    Most, if not all, PK rackets sold in Japan in those days are Gosen deals.

    BTW, Yuth, these older rackets somehow play best with the "lowly" synthetics. Trust me. Have the TRAD restrung with syn at something like 50-55 lbs and you'll see the difference.

    Another BTW, coming to BKK any time during the new year? Gimme a buzz, please.

    Hi Anirut,

    Thank you for your kindness krub. I agree with you. Synthetic gut in lower tension would be great for classic racquet. I will try to do it, and let you know ASAP.

    Happy New Year krub,

    Yuth
