    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.

    Babolat first generation

    Thank you, As you can see on the pictures the paintjob is slightly different as are the specs: 1994 edition (the Original, 280gr unstrung) 1995-96 double line edition (290gr unstrung) 1997 edition (300gr unstrung and most common) The swirly is a different mold. The first soft and pure drive...

    What do Henin and Davenport's racquet today?

    You can't buy it no more cos they don't make it no more, even Justine had to switch to Babolat VS late in her career after using all her stock of MS First Gold...

    What do Henin and Davenport's racquet today?

    Justine uses the same racket as Svitolina (old steam 99 with Burn 100 pj) these days.

    Völkl T10 mp gen. I RA: 64 The best racket i've tested with very low RA is the Vantage Bastcore 30. That is actually a racket i could still use today or play tournaments with...

    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...

    You are correct, it should have been 3 million rackets/year. Fixed it ;-)

    Snauwaert again?!

    They really did, the person in charge for the rackets is Roberto Gazzara, he worked for Prince for a long time but there were problems at Prince so Snauwaert got him.Together with Frank Goethijn (product development university Antwerp) they have a team with experience. The first 1500 rackets...

    Nadal is no longer using RPM Blast

    Hmmm, the fact that some long time (and trusty) members confirmed that he actually plays BB Original doesnt count as proof? what's wrong with the world... ;)

    Hi VS, yes it is and it has nothing to do with the Belgian site, nada.

    My PUMA Holy Grail!

    Yes i do but note that the lead was not always placed at the same places, as you may know on the BB World Champion racket the lead places are painted on, the reason is because at that time (1995) he put the lead on those places so it's just a mark on the BB WC (Boris used single layer lead tape...

    eye-glasses suitable for tennis

    I'm maybe in the minority here but i don't like my Oakley's (FJ's), my eyelashes touch the glass, they fog up like hell, too tight around my face. Oh and too expensive! much better alternatives out there...

    Snauwaert again?!

    Hi Auto, hope all is well, its been awhile... Anyway, you are correct, that is his Prince with a Snauwaert stencil. He is testing new frames as we speak though, he will be the new ambassador for the "new" Snauwaert Europe brand. A Belgian businessman and investor started in 2013 by taking over...

    Snauwaert ATP Tour 85 & 93

    Very solid rackets with great feel and weight, thin constant beamed so giving that extra old school feeling and control. Love these sticks!
