    Babolat first generation

    That's what i've heard too but to be honest i can't confirm that it was actually a PK destiny... The first pure control on the other hand is indeed a copy mold of the famous "Supermidsize" Donnay Pro One.

    What do Henin and Davenport's racquet today?

    Babolat first generation

    Yes, if they are not brand new i'll play them (mostly a brief hit). The soft controls were 80% graph / 20% Fiberglass. As i had too many of these older Babolats over the years i've sold a bunch of them, the rest is now in boxes waiting to be hanged together with the rest of my collection...

    The Snauwaert fanclub _/¯

    Ok for once and for all, the correct number should be somewhere between 600.000 and 800.000 (max.) rackets per year! The only one that made more then 1 million rackets per year was Donnay, not Snauwaert. My apologies for the bad info coming from the Belgian press, my info now comes directly from...

    Snauwaert again?!
