    Hi and thanks in advance for any help.

    I came into possession of an older POG OS.

    I did a little research and I think it's a second generation POG.

    It has a single stripe. The i in the prince is hollow with 2 hollow dots and 1 solid green dot above it.

    I'm sorry for starting another "what's my frame worth" thread but does this frame have any value? I'm 100% positive I will never use it so I'm trying to decide whether to sell it or just donate it to Goodwill.

    I've considered getting rid of my ORIGINAL Prince Graphite many times. Now that I have room for display, it IS a conversation piece and I guess I'm glad I kept it. I don't really think a Gen2 is all that worthy but you might get a few bucks for it. Heck, if it's playable, let someone get some use out of it. I'm happy to LOOK in GoodWill for rackets but would rather donate them to a schools or community program...just my .02 :)

    Thanks for the feedback. It's playable. One of the reasons I don't want to use it is bc I'm afraid I might like it. Then I would become obsessed with hunting down 2nd gen. POGs.

    I guess your POG OS is the one with individual grommets. It has no bumperguard and no grommet stripes, correct?

    This is a great racket. I still use 1 from time to time. Mine weights 12.4 oz and is a little lighter than the POG 3rd generation (weights 12.8, slightly too heavy for me). The shame is it is damn hard to replace its individual grommets. I suggest you play your POG and once the string breaks and if you find the grommets chipped all over the place, you call it a day and give it up. Otherwise, before the string breaks, enjoy the stick!

    Yes, that's the what I have.

    Mine is a 3/4 grip so I would have a hard time using it even just for fun. :shock:

    Then sell it before the string breaks :)
