Help me identify this racquet manufacturer, please

Sarcastic looks like he’s got the answer to his question so I’m following suit...

Does anyone have any idea whose logo this is? I have picked up a mystery racket and can’t work out the manufacturer from the buttcap logo below or the name on the throat (“Pro Mid MG 929” - catchy...).



The game is afoot...

Tony Trabert racquets were made by three different SoCal manufacturers over the course of 7-8 years, each using a different butt decal. This is not one of them. By the looks of the frame in the other thread, it was likely made in the '90s, long after the final Tony Trabert frame left the factory.

I don't know what it is, but odds are it's one of the gazillion random brands produced by myriad Taiwanese manufacturers (The "TT" might as well stand for "Taiwan Tennis" :)). I'm convinced that someone can spend years researching obscure Taiwanese brands and still have no idea what percentage of these remain unknown. Of course, many brands are made by the same manufacturer, and since @Henry Hub is trying to ID the manufacturer, he can narrow things down a bit by measuring the diameter of the circular depression in the butt cap using a caliper. If it's around 1.16", chances are it's a Kunnan product, though this is nowhere near an exclusive characteristic.

Pro Supex? Is that a knock off of ProKennex? Which itself was a semi knock off of Yonex ( I believe).
While I'm sure Kunnan Lo had studied Yonex frames, Kennex was its own animal in Taiwan while Yonex was strictly Japanese(at that time). Kunnan was making frames for many brands before hitting the market seriously with their own line. While Yonex was deep into the Rex('square') design, Kennex was as oval as could be with their early offerings.

I was being a bit silly there. The only knock off is the name. The Ex suffix denotes being superior or ultimate quality. Something along those lines.
