    Cool looking racquet, maroon, solid frame, can't wait to try it. Anyone ever use this? Feels like the Yonex R22, nice weapon.

    I have a Golden Mid; it's a beautiful racquet, and is the epitome of an ultimate-performance clay court/baseline racquet of the mid-1980's. The Golden Mid and its concurrent sister, the (Warren Bosworth-designed, isometric Golden Dyno) were technically interesting in that they were graphite-fiberglass-Kevlar composites, with a wood core.

    I've tried to collect the entire lineup of Snauwaert Mid and Dyno models. The only one I haven't been able to find is the elusive Dyno-Boron.

    Found a Snaurwaert Golden Mid in a goodwill shop, it's gorgeous and in fantastic condition! It also hits so nice, my hitting partner says I hit better with this than I do with my modern sticks.

    Hi Retro, the Snauwaert Graphite Mid is also an excellent racket, actually it play very much like a modern racket despite the small headsize, very interesting stick!
    Mine is strung with poly and have no problems finding spin and power...

    Yes, ericsson, quite right. I have some of the Graphite Mid (including one strung with poly) and it is as you say.

    I did find a Dyno-Boron this summer, so my collection of Snauwaert is now complete. :)
