Best looking Head ever. Mine has a Frankenstein cap grommet job which has been cut to fit but I'm getting the MG Prestige grommets for it soon as it deserves better. The feel when you hit the sweet spot is sublime.

My favorite racquet! We have a long relationship.

I started using them back in 1988. Here’s me practicing with one, circa 1990:



I still have a few; still play with them, when I am in good practice.



The grommets can be difficult to remove, though:

Loving the pic ! Back in the day when we all had to worry about our hair being to big and puffy . Now I’d kill to have that problem!!!!!
Retro ! What is that black square on the but cap ? Is that yellow lime green tourna grip or gamma grip 2 possibly a. Stellar grip ?
And red strings ? Maybe . Prince top or syn ... or even tecnifibre!???

Retro !at least in the pic above you could be an Andre Agassi double !!! Seriously check it out look at Agassi at 17 years old . In the pic you provided if you had a bleach job and longer hair in the back you’d be a dead ringer man ! Wow . That’s crazy bro

Hahahaha! Well, although I am the same age as AA, what you see in that archive photo of me is about as crazy as my style ever got. The overgrip was a Gripsy, strings were red Prince topspin—nice guess! The butt cap just had the stock silver Head sticker on it, though I typically added another label with a number on it, because I kept a log of which frame was strung with what and when, etc., and with a bunch of otherwise identical frames, that helps to identify them.

Shoes were the amazing blue nubuk leather Diadora Mavericks with grey trim. Had white ones for tournaments, as well; back then, some places were still adamant about “predominantly white” attire. Oh, finally, this is on a hard court.

Head Elite Pro (CAPped) 352/12.42/52/324
Very close to pc600 just slightly more flexible
Yes, that's my other Elite Pro, with full black CAPs. I haven't measured the flex of this specific bat in the post. But I expect it to be more or less the same. I've got four more nonfully-CAPped Elite Pros, and they are all within a point or so, if I remember correctly.

I’d have to agree using a multi at 41 pounds is possibly the only way you will get some free power.
