    I have been playing with the Prince Original Graphite (POG) for 18 years. I love the feel, control, balance, ... almost everything except the old paint job of it. If I wish to buy a new racquet that gives me almost the same feel as the POG, which one would you suggest? Is there a substitute for the (1) the oversize model? (2) the mid-plus model?

    Thanks in advance.

    for the mid, at 14x18, with all the classical feel and 100% graphite feel and arm PROTECTION? difficult.

    so convinced of it, I just bought one:)

    great racket, esp on topspin, for me, but it'll eat your strings, as expected at this string density.

    For me the Diablo Mid is every bit as good as the POG Mid, but with more stability, and more muted (but it does have a rubber grip, not a leather one).
