    This was my college stick. After good results with Wilson Jack Kramer as a youth, Bancroft Borg as a pre-teen and Donnay Borg Pro as a teen, I was convinced (?) by my college coach to use something with a bigger head. This was a crazy racket to wield. Is there anything like, in terms of specs, today?

    meh, only thing similar would be the headsize... otherwise it's like
    rickety boneshaker vs a plush-riding Rolls Royce

    I've got some alu Pro 110s... I don't find them anything special.
    They feel like any other alu stick of that period, Prince just made
    some of the larger ones in the market.

    POG otoh... that's got a unique feel all of its own.

    Plenty of modern OS frames out there, none play like alu :)

    This week been mucking about with a pair of P TT Bandits,
    light like alu & seem to be decent candidate for some customising.

    Try the Wilson Energy Rail XL, the cheapo alu frame found in the big stores.
    I had one that I shortened into oversized child racquet. Before that I had it leded up to about 340 SW. It hit big monster serves and lots of spin and had VERY soft flex. However the original high-frequency chatter vibration just changed to low frequency vibration that I still couldn't stand.

    As the other posters said, you'd be much better of with any oversized graphite frame...
