I LOVE these racquets (in spite of the nasty paint job, which is a huge compliment coming from me). Unfortunately, they are massive (363 grams strung, no lead) and very head-heavy. I do not have the strength (or technique) to hit effectively with them for more than an hour!

Thanks a lot to post these mate!, i never got my hands on these beauties, also first generation but these are the very early ones (double line logo)
They are not head-heavy, infact they are a little head light but what you probably mean is they are very solid, a lot of mass in the head and intire frame what makes it very difficult to get around, a beast of a racket, note that the specs are slightly different then the later ones, the very early ones were 335 grams unstrung, the ones i have are 330g unstrung, flex and balance were slightly different too, here the card board of my PC 1 gen:



Ps: take good care of them, they are extremely rare and very limited!
