Add your donnay code !!!

What do you mean by Donnay code?

Virginia 03-08-2010 02:58 PM

I just saw the above link, which I hadn't noticed before.

I've just won a Trademe auction for a coded Donnay.

859.12

The seller said it was a "Procomposite". Will tell you what it's like when I get it.

P.S. I haven't checked all of them, but I don't think any of my current Donnays have codes.

P.P.S. I wasn't going to buy this, but when I saw this thread, I thought to myself "Gotta have a coded Donnay!" LOL

When i have the time i will post a lot more codes if you want, i have manyyyyyyy!
Anyway, about the codes, i finally have some insight.
It was basically an inventory code, there is some logic in the codification for short time period but not much. Some models have a code some models don't.
The codes started at about 1976 on wood models and ended in the early 90's.
Note that Donnay also numbered some very early woodies (not a code but a number).

Hi guys, I have the following,
2 x Pro Cynetic 1
2 x Pro Cynetic 12
1 x Pro Ceramic
1 x Mid 725
None of them with codes, I think that they were made in Brazil. Did they only have codes if they were made in Belgium?

Yes, I'll get it done at some point next week.

Virginia 03-13-2010 06:37 PM

ericcson, my latest Donnay has a code of 859.12. It says "Pro Composite" on the top of the hoop, but I can't find any reference to that model.

On the side of the handle, it says "Exclusively for Harrods, Knightsbridge". I assume it was distributed "exclusively" to that store. Do you happen to know anything more about it?

Hi Virginia, it doesnt ring a bel, does the racket has a name model? or just pro composite? it could be one of those models made from a famous mold just for that shop, it is not listed in the official catalogue though, i have about nearly every model they've made listed.

Virginia 03-14-2010 09:43 AM

No, nothing else at all, other than Donnay Graphite on the side of the handle.
