It's a Prince Precision Response. Got it for $15 at the tennis courts about a year ago. Same strings, but changed the overgrip a few times. Want to get a modern racquet with much smaller head size.

Before settling on using the above one for most playing and practice I was using a Prince O3 or something ($125). Then I got a Babolat 105 (on sale at TW for $70). But the Precision Response, though a relative cheapo, feels better to me than those. They are too light.
