    I have two rackets coming in soon. One is called The Captain by Tony Trabert and one is the Lobster Citation 110. Wondering if anyone knows anything about them. Will post pics as soon as they arrive.:)

    Wow, you're taking us back thirty years or so. Seems I recall the Captain being a less expensive follow-up to the C-6...not sure about that. Lobster had a knock-off of the Big Bubba, IIRC...better known for their ball machines than their rackets.

    You've really been 'bit by the bug', eh?
    I'm trying to slow down but it's not easy! New wheels for the Bad Boy Ultra took a chunk out of the 'collection' budget :) .

    I think the Lobster Citation 110 is a wide body racket. Not too familiar with those, but I know I can get my hands on some brand new ones if I want to. If anyone is interested let me know I can arrange to get one for you.
