They won a few matches with the legendary Max 200g.

In the early/mid 80s, it was not considered a heavy club. In some ways, it was considered an early wide-body with a hollow construction, thanks to the Injection Moulding process.

Well, in any case, it's one of the finest frames ever. I had about 30 of them between '83 and '93, and I still occasionally hit with the last of 'em.
Almost all the pros from Italy at the time used at some point of their career the 200g, including Paolo Canč, Omar Camporese, Diego Nargiso and Andrea Gaudenzi (as a junior).

Camporese was the last pro using the 200g in the circuit...I remember him destroying Carlos Moya in the first round of the 1997 DC with his purple green max 200g pro (already discontinued at that time)...I have never seen another player hitting an heaveir ball on the forehand side...he almost created holes in the surface with his giant flat forehand!!
mac used it until 1996-97 in exibitions and senior events...
