    What is the largest racquet headsize you've ever played with (it doesn't have to be one you own, just one you've hit with at least once).

    I had a Prince Thunderbolt 115. Despite it's large head size and 28.5" length it didn't play too bad. It had a nice even balance and was pretty flexible.

    120" CAT 1, 115" Thunderbolt. Effortless topspin on groundies. Better buy a stringer and a reel of string

    I think your results are going to be a little misleading, since you put 107 and 110 in different categories. I suspect that for a lot of people, the standard Prince/Head type oversize will be the largest racquet they've swung. And since some people know this as a 110, and others as a 107, you're going to be splitting votes that are actually for the same racquets.

    I agree. This poll will not be very accurate due that flaw.

    Yes, I remember that POG whopper. That was the largest POG every made. I think it was 125 sq. I wonder if Seles ever played that racquet.

    They also made a prince magnesium in that size. The only player I saw use the 125 graphite was Frew McMillan.

    125sq. in. Prince that was 29in. in length. Believe it was the Thunderstrike or something like that.

    Not that it's probably going to ruin the guy's doctoral thesis, or delay the cure of cancer or anything. But all the same, I figure if he went to all the trouble to put together a poll, he probably wants the info for some reason. Figured it'd be best to point out the possible flaw in methodology.
