Donnay Int LE reissue or original ?

Those are the original pro one internationals from the 90s.
Dont think the recent release donnays were made as re-releases to look like the older school models. Donnay did make the recent releases to play flexible like those models. I have many of the old internationals and they play great. I have not tried the recent release donnays, would like to ...

Yes ...but i know TW made a reissue version of Donnay Int LE in 2006 maybe...and with 75% graphite and 25% fiberglass and they looked the same as this one ...But original Donnay LE was pure graphite .

That's the TW re-issue. It has the cosmetics of the Limited but the more flexible layup of the International.

OK thank you.but how did you know that it is TW and not the original if the cosmetics are the same

The originals have a 3D buttcap: D is raised by about 1 mm.
TW reissues that I've seen all had a plain buttcap, where D is just painted on.

They also differ in specs. TW reissues being ~10g lighter.

Because there is International written inside the throat While on the shaft is written Limited Edition. Oh and the original cosmetics for the International are not the same. Also the Butt-cap that was mentioned.

Agree with VS.
On original P1 Limited Edition, it is written 'Supermidsize' inside the throat instead of 'International'.

The grip size sticker if it is still there (along with the but cap) will look a bit Dunlop ish too.
