A good racket from 20+ years ago could easily be used on pro tour today. The prince graphite from 30 years ago was a great racket, the head prestige and radicals from 10+ years ago can easily compete with today's models. The Jim Courier flat beam 95 wilson pro staff from 10+ years ago is a great racket.
The main advance since graphite composite rackets has been polyester strings which have changed the game almost as much as the change from wood to graphite.
I really don't see "basalt" or amplifeel having an advantage over a good graphite racket from 20 years ago.
