Post Pictures of your Gear part....3 I think

Rubberbands are cheap and highly effective! Buy a bag of 100 for a few bucks and you are good for a long time.

Gotta love the trends that pros like Agassi start for sure!

Jdeloach,
I have an off topic question, how does the rubberband damper work compared to the o-damper?
The rubberband is by far the best for the money...lol.
I do like the "o" dampener, but not worth it when the #64 Rubberbands get the job done, and you never have to worry about them popping out during a match.

1st - Put both ends of the rubberband through from the backside.



2nd - Cross the two ends over each other (one above the other), and feed back through to other side.




Last - Then turn the racquet over to the side where the ends are, and tie a knot. That's all!

is that a babolat buttcap on that prince?:-o
Yes, it's the Babolat butt cap. I bought the racquet in 4 5/8 gripsize so I have to resize it and the local pro shop didn't have the 3/8 butt cap so I used the Babolat instead.

As far as the difference between diablo and the POG. I use the Diablo when I need more control and use the POG as my main stick. I Like both sticks but the Diablo hurts my arm if I use it for more than 2 hours.

Here you go:









I don't have any specs, but if memory serves, there were three original Destiny racquets: composite, ceramic and graphite. I played with 2 graphite destinys and replaced them with graphite presences. The composition, if I remember correctly, was composite destiny is combo of graphite/fiberglass, ceramic destiny was graphite and ceramic and maybe some fiberglass. The graphite destiny was all graphite.

I have been looking for a graphite destiny for a while but have not run into one.

Holy ... that's a nice looking frame. How thin is the beam? I want one already :).

The beam of the head looks to be around 25mm, it is very "aero" in cross section and looks like the Pure Drive head. I think some have posted that babolat used/bought the destiny mold from PK. The throat is round in cross-section and tapers to about 17mm.

Weight is a solid 352 grams strung.

I see. I love this candy apple color anyway ... I'm just getting depressed that there are still so many nice looking frames around that I have to buy :).

THX a lot dallasstarsfan!

I remember :

the white Destiny, the blue, the red (ceramic) and the black (graphite). I had the blue, the red and then a PK Destiny Arche Legend Boron. I guess it was the next gen of PK, but it looked really like the original Destiny lineage.

They all broke up @ 2 & 10. They all were replaced by PK without any question. I switched to a PS 6.1 at the time.

I didn't remember that the Ceramic was so heavy. In France PK was huge back in the 80's and many juniors played with the blue or the red stick. All were 95 in² I think. I got pics of the Destiny Graphite if you like.

BTW I've just bought on a French Auction site a PK Destiny Arche Legend Boron. The same that I used... I hope to receive it next week.

I've already written to PK to get some specs but they haven't reply yet

edit: Legend Boron

I have heard they got the molds from PK also. It is odd that there already "aero" shaped beams, but Babolat can market these with the help of a numbe #2 ranked player and make a killing.
