    Prestige Classic with Big Banger Alu 16 Rough?

    How does this play? Someone told me that 16 gauge in a Prestige Classic is like putting SUV tires in a Ferrari :)

    Wilson Ultra FPK 110 with 10 coats of clearcoat, Klippermate white overgrip on a Wilson leather grip. Trying to find finishing tape in white-pearl. Strung with rope, cheap nylon until I find a string in a nice blue spiral design. Remember if you look good, no one will remember how you play. And above all, image is everything.

    I own several sticks (as I believe many others here do), but my current "game" racquets are Estusa Power Beam Braided - one strung with Babolat X-Cel 17g and one with Klip Excellerator 17g. Both @ 60lbs. I play with one stock and the other with 2 inches of lead at 2 and 10 o'clock (a la Triple Threat). Yonex Super Grap white or Tournagrip blue.
