    I'm interested by the Solinco Pro line of racquets but information about those are rare to non-existent. I'm interested about anything you know about these racquets: information, comparisons, opinions, reviews, everything.

    Amongst the many questions i have:

    1- I've heard that they are base on the mold of some head racquets but others have said that they were K-Blade clones. Who's right?

    2- Grip shape: standard Dunlop shape or rectangular Head? Do they run larger than usual or smaller perhaps?

    3- Are they using a pallet system to change the grip shape/size in case i don't like the grip?

    4- The Pro 8 seems to be identical to the Pro 10 in mold shape and stiffness, except it's a lot lighter. Do you think leading a Pro 8 to Pro 10 specs would result in a very similar racquet? I'd prefer tweaking a lighter racquet like the Pro 8 rather than having no margin for customization with the Pro 10, even though it's stock specs are right in my preference zone.

    5- If they are indeed head molds (they really look like em), can you CAP them, maybe?

    That's about it for now, any help is appreciated...

    I don't see any in the "for sale" section either. Either they are really good or no one is buying them.

    I am starting to seeing a few popping up in the junior tournaments here in Australia. Mainly Pro7’s and Pro8’s.
    Asking how they perform, I got some positive feedback. Good control with the 18x20 pattern. One comment from a Dad was his son was now happy to move into the net when he struggled before. With regard to stiffness no one had an issue.
    The strings that were being used were Tour Bite and Barb Wire.
    The other comment was it is a great looking racquet.

    I was curious about the mold as well, so I emailed solinco and they said that it is their own unique mold.

    I'm very interested in these frames, so if anyone has more info on them, please post in this thread.

    I have tried both the Pro 8 and the Pro 10. I would think that yes, leading a Pro 8 will reach very close to a Pro 10. The Pro 10 is a real beast of a racquet, it's more like hitting the ball with a small truck rather than a racquet. I would suggest starting with the Pro 8 and customizing from there - because the Pro 10 is just so much racquet to start off with.

    I would say more to a 'standard' grip shape than anything. If anything, the handle felt a little small to me (4 3/8"). I do not know if it has a pallet.

    Sorry I can't help more.
