    Prestige Classic 600.
    Safin ending up using the Prestige Classic 600 with the Paint Job of the Dunlop MuscleWeave 200G after Dunlop could not make him a racquet Safin liked. This is when HEAD filed a lawsuit against Dunlop. When HEAD made the lawsuit Safin then started using a blacked out racquet with no stencil. Then Safin came to terms with HEAD and had i.Prestige Paint Jobs on the Prestige classic 600.

    2002 Australian Open Safin is using the Prestige Classic 600 with the Paint Job of the Dunlop MW 200G. You will notice the C.A.P System Grommets on Safin's PC600 with the PJ of the Dunlop MW 200G. Only HEAD racquets can fit the C.A.P System.

    Do you mean Head only allows people using Head paintjobs to use CAP grommets, or they only fit those frames in general?
