Babolat New Pure Storm-LTD GT (95)
DUNLOP Biomimetic Max 200G
Dunlop Biomimetic 200 (95)
Prince EXO3 Rebel (95)
Prince EXO3 Tour (100) 16 x 18
Volkl Power Bridge-10 Mid (93)
Volkl Organix 10 325G
Wilson Prostaff Six.One BLX (95)
Yonex Vcore 95D
Those sticks seem to appear here regularly as among the favorites of many who like players' frames. I really want to try out a few on the list, particularly the Vcore 95D and Prestige.
I'm using a 4D200 T, which would head the list if they still made them. I really wonder what passes for decision-making at Dunlop. They have a total classic frame and cancel it. Compare that to Head or Bab, which keep their signature frames going year after year.
