    Hi, I was just wondering how do you know if this racket was made in St. Vincents. What are the differences between all of them.

    I've heard that the if the last 3-digit letter code on the butt-cap is "Q" then its the big V.

    the saint vincent models do not say 6.0. i have an original sv and one with the 6.0 index and they hit very differently

    There are several different versions on the "originality" of the Big V along with the ones listed in your replies:
    1. Under paint - RED
    2. Bar code
    3. Frame thickness 18mm
    4. Type face of the "Pro Staff"
    I'm not sure which is true though, but I have play with several versions and the Taiwan one seems to be a touch more comfortable than the others while maintaining the feel. I have not seen / played with a 18mm frame though.
