Prince Ace Face 90
 
I have an old racquet from my childhood. It's a Prince Ace Face 90.

I wonder if any of you guys have the specs or have used it. It seems to look a lot like the Prince Graphite Pro 90 (i.e. Looks like the Prince Original but without the bar in the throat). 14 X 18 string pattern, 90" or 93" head size. Any idea what the stiffness rating is? It feels around 12 ounces/340 grams but I'm not sure (difficult to tell just by feel).

I think it's made of Graphite + Fiberglass, but i could be wrong.

Here are some photos I googled of an identical racquet to what I have (mine is without all the scratches).



It has "Prince <T> Patented 1990 Prince MFG, Inc written on the inside of the throat.

Any ideas? I have restrung it and have hit with it a bit. Very arm friendly in terms of shock absorption. Makes me want to check out the Prince Original 90".

Also, the racquet came with a very funky 80s design head-cover.

cool. how do you like it?

I have restrung mine with a high quality multi (Babolat Xcel 17g @60lbs) and use it as a spare stick or when i'm messing around. It feels very soft, cushioned and stable at impact. i seem to be able to hit a pretty good ball with it both in terms of depth and spin. I'll probably drop the tension next time i string it.

It's not my main stick, but i can play with it.
