    I did not like it in real, too...kind of a spaceship-enterprise-phaser feel... :)

    I cant stand the MFil 200 looks...uaaah...who designed that one?

    I like the design of the M-Fil 200. Looks like candy.

    PS Torch is real ugly to me.

    POGs...

    Even though POGs are my current match racquets, I think they look quite ugly (all generations)....

    Although I use a PS 6.0 95, the paintjob looks like something from 20 years ago - which it is! ;)

    But that's what makes it look cool, in a retro kind of way.

    I agree that the POG is pretty ugly, but I think it's because of that crossbar.

    I vote for this garish piece of trash, the Wilson McProStaff

    I think the Hamburgler just threw up on my racquet.

    ^wow, eewwwww. Hey....I like the POG and ps85 schemes of color, it's simple and clean. I wonder what other designs will be available in the future, since...stripes, two tone designs and such have been done. You think patterns might be next like how Louis Vouton purses are, sorta like how prince have that braided design on their rackets, but maybe with "W" or something.

    Never thought of it but MegaAge, back when they were $29 would be the ultimate PJ candidate

    Any of the newer Dunlops are ugly. The MW 200g was the last nice looking racquet they've made.

    Damn £59.00 (about $107.50 US)....what happened? These things used to be cheap. Is it the same racquet they used to sell for $30?

    I put in an anti-vote for NXG Graphite...that is one of the all-time sweetest looking frames.

    Which head size do you use? I find the mid to be a great racket. Great ball feel. It is also amazing that such a dense string patterned racket can have so much spin.

    I don't "use" any. I demoed one last summer, loved it, bought two, broke on a serve, then demoed others and bought the nCode. I still have a hard time deciding between the nCode 6.1 95, NXG Graphite MP, and Tour 10 VE. But, as you can see, I used the MP. It didn't get as much spin as I would like and was a bit too unstable. I added lead tape, which helped. I the feel of all of the More Performance system by Prince. I think all rackets should be that way. BTW, I do still keep an NXG just cuz I like it a lot. Anybody got a well-used Tour 10 VE MP that they want to sell cheap?

  23. First of all, the Aeropro Tour Babolat Who-cares-we-have-Andy Roddick racquets are kind of cool looking in 'real life'. If pictures, they look stupid. The frame is not as wide as it looks in that pic. That pic is horrible.

    Second, the POG is not ugly- it's simple. That bulemic Hamburglar racquet thing is god ugly, as is that green-red-silver contraption.

    Third- Wilson n6.1 90's look AWESOME in 'real life'.

    I think the paintjob of Prostaff6.0 85/95 is fantastic. Black, professional looking letterings, simple but yeah...professional look. If they change it a bit, I will do some horrible things to Wilson. BTW, POG... I think crossbar is OK. But I hate most of lettering jobs on it. Very cheap looking. I recently got a second generation POG OS and it has a better letterings although I don't like those four stripes design either. Overall, POG deserves a better paintjob!!! It's one of the best!

    I use a black Vantage, and while it plays like a dream, there's nothing appealing about it's appearance whatsoever.

    Volkl Super G 10 Mid 330. The yellow needs to be turned down. Why could't it be glossy black and red?
