I need some help identifying this Donnay Pro One.

The head size is a bit bigger then my Donnay Pro One Limited Edition Supermidsize and about the same head size as the Head Radical Trisys 260 oversize Agassi bumble bee racquet.

What year were they made?
What is the string tension range?
What are they worth today? I paid $80 for it local off FB marketplace

Its the Pro One Oversize, the Agassi racquet. I might be slightly off here as by no means am I an expert but they started late 80s when Agassi left Prince to sign with Donnay and he wanted them to clone the POG largehead version he was used to, so they made this but without the throatbar. This yellow/blue one is highly sought after, I myself took about 20yrs to find mine. I had Donnay sponsorship early 90s and was able to get the orange/grey one in about 92 or 93, then the mad purple/grey one came out about 96 (?). Please anyone correct me with dates if I'm wrong.
If you managed to get this for $80 then you have an absolute bargain. Keep it, cherish it, love it. Play with it occasionally but do what I do with all of mine, hang them on the wall and admire them!

Thank you for the information. I wasn't sure if it was the one he used or not. This one almost looks like it has never been played. No scrapes or scratches just some light scuff marks. I put some fabric tape on the head and over grip and tried it out. Even with worn strings this thing hits fantastic. I like it more then the Head oversize racquets I have.

Do you know what the recommend string tension is? What do you string yours at and what string are you using?

Sorry but I don't know the recommended tension, I'm sure there's better experts on here than me who can help you out!
My Pro One's aren't my 'match' racquets so I think I just put some ALU Power in one, maybe some Syn gut stuff in the other, tension I always ask for low anyway, so about 50lbs or so. My match string is Yonex PolyTourPro at 47lbs in my Head Gravity Tour Auxetic.
Yours does look in superb condition, much better than mine, so for the price you paid as I said you have bagged a good 'un!! I used to use the orange/grey as my main stick back in the 90s so it's battered.
