    Finally have word that Prince will no longer be producing the POG OS. No idea about the POG Mid but don't expect it to survive either.

    That is horrible! Can't believe they would discontinue this legendary stick.

    Too bad.. On the other hand, I can wait for 5 more years and hopefully sell my 4 stripe POG OS's for big $$$$. :)

    My fiancee emailed Tennis Warehouse asking about POG OS stock and was told they'd been informed by Prince that it would no longer be producing the POG OS.

    End of an era. This racquet kick-started Agassi's, Seles', and Chang's career, among others.
    Buy em while you can! And some grommets!

    Just in case this is true, I went ahead and bought one. Was going to wait until next year when my game was better...but wanted to grab one to be sure. I don't want to be left scouring the interwebs a year from now just to find a used one.

    A good choice, Rhino! Probably the greatest oversized stick ever made.
    And, soon to be a collector's item, it seems. Guess sales of it have been down....

    This is the perfect moment to start campaigning for TW to buy the molds and keep this puppy in production.

    No offense to you...I just don't believe everything I read. But the fact that I bought one yesterday is proof that I believe you more than I don't.
