Same as the unpainted frames lying next to them in the pic. Massively inferior to the Original 85, the best frame that ever graced the game. They stopped giving them to players about a year before Pete retired (from what I was told, they thought he was going to call it a day sooner).
I have tried to look for an example of a matt black frame with a gloss clear coat to see if it gives it a little, something. At the moment black is still first choice, with all red a strong second.
I'll get some custom-made handle caps to seal the deal. I find the current selection of paint jobs for racquets quite hideous, much prefer something simple and clean.
