    Amazing really that so many top players still using these racquets, which one has the most pro devotees still on the tour?
    Head Prestige Classic: Flipper, Safin , Haas?, Arazi
    POG: Santoro, Rochus, Ferrero, Spadea.
    Please add any others you can think of to this list, I would like to total it up and then re-post to show just what a load of bullcrap all this paintjob nonsense really is!

    Haas doesn't use the Classic, he uses the Dunlop 200G MW. You forgot to mention Coria as a POG user. So your tally is 3 Head users, and 5 POG users.
  3. Often it seems that in every men's match I see one guy is using a Prestige Classic. The last guy I remember playing with a POG was Michael Chang, and that was a while ago, before he switched to a longbody. If you mean the longbody, then your guess is as good as mine with all the paintjobs and all. On the other hand, most any pro playing with a current Prestige paintjob is still using the Prestige Classic. Ten years ago Head had 25 of the Top 100 playing with their sticks, mostly the Prestige Classic. Most of those players have since retired, but now there's a crop of players in their early 20's hitting it in their place. It's an amazingly timeless stick that on tour will outlive the lifespan of even the Pro Staff Midsize.

    If you are counting all the countless variations of the pog as one, then instead of just using the prestige classic as an example you should just say the entire prestige series.
