Happy 30th Anniversary HEAD Prestige On Tour Since 1986

B-Line

Rookie
Thank you, very nice picture!
According to Sergio Tacchini outfit, it is '86 or '87. The same model was wearing Pat Cash when won Wimbledon in '86. I saw Casal was wearing the same outfit at '87 European Community Championship in Antwerpen (full-size gold-diamond racquet trophy). He played against Cash who was wearing newest ST outfit and played with Yonex RQ-180 instead of his winning Prince Magnesium Pro 90. Cash won.
1987 that Sergio line

Wow - they are like gold dust.... wish I knew to get one long long ago. Lol
You want that same feeling in the future, grab a couple Gravity Pros now. They're ugly as sin, but they're already generating the sort of high level tour support that means players are going to be flocking to them for years under whatever kind of new paint emerges after they start to make the new editions worse.

Best rackets in the market currently. Looks are very subjective
 
I just hit with a 1st gen prestige pro (all brown), strung with a 1.18 copoly. I instantly felt at home with this one.
As an early teen i played with a graphite tour 600 (junior version) (from 1992 to 1994-95 or so) and then my father gave me his prestige tour 660 which i played with from 95 to 2000 probably.

This prestige pro is just amazing, wonderful feel, insane precision, fast through the air, sweetspot seems quite big for the head size. I hardly missed a shot for an hour.
I was left wondering, why do racket manufacturer even bother making new sticks, it seems there hasnt been any real technological improvement since then... and it's been 35 years now ?

I also hit with an Elite Pro... What can I say ? Flexiest of the flexier racquets... The feeling when you hit with full power is nuts ! But I find it at little less precise than the Prestige Pro and of course less powerful, so i think i prefer the Prestige Pro.

Anyway, 2 more frames to add in my bag, along with PT630, Radical Tour candycane, i.Prestige MP, PT 2.0.... The curse of choice!
