    Thanks. Do you know the specs for the racquet ? It weighs 340 gms with the strings. An arm friendly racquet ? Do you know, what the number on the grip means ? Serial number ? AK233988.

    And yes very arm friendly. I've never had it on the RDC machine but it feels very low 50s at least. Very flexible.

    Dude I've got one of those Donnay Graphite Borgs and it's amazing! Great find! Grommets are falling off on mine too but it's got barely any head rash or scratches.

    I found a Wilson Pro Staff this afternoon for $1.50, but I was hoping to get some more information on it. I posted in the "Classic Racquet Talk" forum, but am yet to hear back.

    Just ditched a PS 6.1 Classic on an online sale @ 10€.
    That's an absolute bargain here in Portugal, but it's 4 1/2 grip sized, and I already have one 6.1 classic.
    I had to fight my will to just get the damn racquet, but in the end I know I'm not comfortable with thick handles, so I had to leave it

    I wouldn't think it would be too hard to rebuild the tension head. Or I wonder how much TM would charge to rebuild it? Great find and should be a moneymaker for you.

    I have a NEOS 1000 and just haven't crossed that threshold where I must have a WIse.
