I got this Prestige Classic 600 (Star Trek, grip 4 5/8) signed by Goran at the ATP Champions Tour 2010 in Spain. I'm not really looking for comments about the signature but rather more info on the actual racquets he used (models, grip sizes, etc.). Thanks in advance.

Nice, I saw this one.:) he was accepting offers so I'd imagine you got a good deal? Ivanisevic uses a Prestige Classic XL, I have seen those before but never owned one, 'Prestige Classic XL' printed on the throat.

Do you have any pictures of this racquet? Btw, I'd be interested in your PC 600 Star trek font. Do you still have it?

Just sold the PC600 actually, sorry. Are you switching to the PC from the TXP's? Here is a Prestige Classic XL, noticed that it has regular grommets instead of CAPs just like the Prestige 600. But not sure if it's the actual version Goran uses, need help from vsbabolat here.:)

Ok, maybe someone else will shed the light on this PC 600 XL. I know very little about it.

The TXP is still my favorite right now. It's slightly stiffer and lighter than the original PP. I'm getting ready to experiment with lots of string setups, mostly Nat Gut. So I got a few of them:

(5) TXP
(4) original Prestige Pro
(2) Prestige Pro 600
(4) Prestige Classic 600 (2 Star Trek)

I still have a few other similar frames like Elite Pro, elektra Pro and Spalding ATP Pro Stock 200 (the braided graphite Prestige mold). They are all awesome racquets, much better than anything in the current line-up.

Really nice collection. I thought these classics are much better than any of the modern Prestiges too. I saw a Spalding ATP not long ago on the bay, description says it is a clone of the Prestige. Are they really quite similar? I didn't bid for it, as I'm not so sure about that frame.

It's a very stiff and heavy frame. Doesn't feel like any Prestige at all. I like it on its own. The stock frame comes with a Fairway grip and ATP hologram logo in the butt cap.

Thanks for the info, if it's heavier than a Prestige, probably not a frame for me. Btw, fairway grips are simply the best. I bought dozens of those!:twisted:
