    With the largely-successful reintroduction of Donnay recently, and now it looks like Lacoste is going to be making rackets again... It's got me thinking: what other brand of racket would you like to see back on the market? Who made sticks that you used to love that you would want to see make a comeback?

    Not a company.

    I just want to see longbodies / extended sticks to make their way back.

    Lacoste is wood with graphite, yes. But the RA is supposed to be 70 or something like that. Way to much if you ask me...

    Now, something with a nice, precise construction method and a 55-60RA could be interesting for sure...

    Estusa!

    I love their frames! The classic, nice PiRotech-frames was super solid.

    The ProLegend Classic Pro was almost better then the Wilson PS 6.1

    And, not to forget, the neon-yellow Pro Legend Classic used by Connors. Looked like a baseball-bat in the profile

    A Yamaha Secret 04 reissue would be nice.
