    I have seen so many posts which mention POG as one of the most popular racquets if not the best.

    What does POG stand for?

    POG stands for Prince Original Graphite.....

    At one time, Chang, Agassi, Sabatini, and other top players used this racquet.

    prince origional graphite - the black one with the green stripe like my grandmother had in 1980. great stick! For years I played with every new junk technology racquet that came out. Then I wised up and gave the POG another try. However, mine is 100si and 28in long--the POG LB. (longbody) The POG has great feel, is headlight, and fairly flexable. Not much power, but easy on the arm. If you're used to light, head heavy frames, it might feel unstable, but once you get used to it, it's great!

    The real name for this racquet is the Prince Graphite Classic.

    I don't think it is a longbody. All three are the same length. It looks more like the middle is a mid plus.
