i know that i would play with it(albeit ultra careful
) not because the world wants to know that feeling but because i like to know that feeling
got a prestige pro 1st gen really cheap a few months ago and couldnīt resist playing with it though it was in mint condition and playing with it might result in lowering the monetary value. and i can tell you, it played like heaven. easily the best racket iīve ever played with(in 36 years of playing)
