    I am currently using the Dunlop biomimetic 200 with Klip 17g natural gut and recently purchased a second with Klip 16g natural gut mains with Weiss cannon scorpion 1.22mm (though I haven't had a chance to hit with it yet but i can't wait :)).

    Do you happen to have the specs for the Dunlops? Are they all the pro mold?

    Damn those look nice! I was thinking of moving up to the X Dark-Red or the X-Blue from my X-Oranges (need that weight!), but man, Donnay makes the best looking frames, don't they.

    My Wilson K-Fator Bold with 17 grams of weight.

    see another post of mine for how I changed the balance point of my racquets for more snap and punch, using a combination of leftover chrome strips from an auto parts store and nickles![​IMG]

    I think you may have a serious illness...

    It's called "Emilda Marcos disease"...she had it with shoes..just sayin...btw, I help out kids in my neighborhood who can't afford racquest by getting them on ****, for cheap when I can. I live on an SSDI monthly check, so that's not as often as I would like. Got any oldies that you might donate to my cause? See my Facebook/guruhelp pages for the Tennis Explosion I have started in a small neighborhood in Las Vegas, if you like!
    Nicely organized collection, too! Looks like it's a pro shop!

    All those 3 frames are based on Dunlop 300 Tour mold. Here is strung spec.

    Berdych: 367g, 317mm, 59RA
    Blake: 365g, 316mm, 63RA (but I think it's just a tad stiffer than Berdych's)
    Haas: 357g, 307mm, 64RA

    thanks :)
    I played a lot with Head i.Prestige Mid (overall around 3 years) back in the days and tried out PC600 Classic (very special stick, absolute beauty but not for me :)).. Also I demoed Fischer Vacuum Pro (Kafelnikov), and after few hours I put this thing away - serving was a terrible action with Fischer.

    you mean the vacuum 98 mid plus? never played with it.
    currently using the prestige pro from 87, which i prefer over the prestige classic. the i prestige mid is the one version of the prestige mid i´ve never played with

    I like it a lot. It is so precise and smooth. And feel is unmatched. The only concern I probably have is not that much plow as in my Dunlops Revs.. apart from that - the racket is absolute winner. And built brilliantly!

    yes, Vacuum MP, first revision, which Kafelnikov had won his RG with. I really found it stiff and uncomfortable, especially on serve.
    I highly encourage to try i.Prestige Mid. Nice frame.

    i had a similar experience with the vacuum mid, Stichs frame, with which i couldn´t serve at all but slices and volleys were unbelievable.
    astonishing how the prestige mids can differ. couldn´t really handle the prestige classic but love the older prestige pro

    i.Prestige Mid was tad more comfortable to me. PC600 (as well as PT630/280) so sluggish I could not stand.

    that sounds very much like the iprestige mid would appeal to me, good info, thanks.
    i played with the iprestige mp for some years and liked that one

    Nope, when I moved in it was in the closet. The strings were broken on it when I found it. Decided to go out back and relieve some of the moving stress. It was a 21" kiddie frame. I was waiting for someone to notice.
