They do in house after market adjustments and Prince told me they are the same frame but all their pro's are using extended versions. So they must be getting raw frames in and customizing to players specs.
I didn't keep any of it , I was constantly giving away old stuff to my friends and family. I saw my daughter wearing my old addidas stuff a few weeks ago and laughed. She is 21 now and said it was cool stuff that she found in one of my old boxes I gave her.
I don't have pics as we didn't have cell phone cameras in the old days but I will tell you he didn't want you to miss a ball and when you came to net he would try to take your head off with a forehand and then he would call out " that's what it's like to be a top pro" all business on the court...
Adidas 1989-1993then switched to mizuno clothes and rackets. Kennex made frames for me from 1987-93 and then after mizuno as well. I am lucky enough to know one of the family members that owns Kennex .
I agree. Totally different patterns and the effect they have on the ball. I like both for different reasons . Love the controlled spin of the 18/16 and 18/17 patterns, and the crazy spin I can generate with the 16/15.
I just heard from a reliable source that Prince players are all using extended frames . They are going to send us a pro stock frame.
I call it prostock as it is extended. Prince then customizes frames for players with lead and silicone.
