I have heard a rumor that Roger will finish his career with the current all black paint job. My guess is only Roger knows for sure.
Wilson will probably have a commemorative special edition PJ ready to be launched the minute he retires.

Then... there will be the "Goodbye Roger Special Limited, He Won't Come Back... But You Never Know Edition" at a mega price point... Followed by the Australian Open RF Edition, RG RF Limited, Wimbledon RF SW19 LTD... and Finally the US I Did It My Way RF Night Session Special. ;):D

I don't get to play a lot these days, but when these two lovely lads showed up, I couldn't resist and bought them...
Does anyone still remember the Dunlop AeroGel 300 Tour (16x18)?

Lovely rackets... Where did you manage to get these? I have been searching for them for ages...

Thanks! I had been looking for this model for quite some time, too. Found this couple via local ads and couldn‘t believe my luck. Oh, and they play great!

Paint job actually looks kinda nice.
Yep, I think so, too. Even if the design of the hoop is actually rather busy.
But - two rather basic design principles that work well (for me) are:
1) Symmetry (I don't even know how all those asymmetric designs have lasted for such a long time already. Totally beats me.)
2) Brand name in white letters against a dark background at 3 and 9 o'clock. You want others to see what brand the racquet is a player is using? Really easy this way and actually gives the stick a "professional" appearance. Also calms a "busy hoop" (see above).

I looked at some photos on the bay of it and it does look nice. Kind of reminds me of nCode 90. It is busy at the hoop but somehow it actually works.
Maybe I'm just drawn to aesthetics of box shaped beams, Babolat Pure Control looks like it has similar mold.

Picked this up off the bay for £14 and simply cannot wait to get it out on court.

Hit with it tonight and now have a real dilemma whether to continue with my trusty Tour 100P or the banana Reb. The flex on the rebel along with Alu Power Feel at 50lbs is addicitive. Plough through is fab. Really reminds me of the Rad Tour Zebra. I’ve seen another on the bay which is sorely tempting.

I grew up with the pc600 and pt 600 and played with it all my life!! I used to stock up alot in my sponsored days but managed to play through all of them (all 10 either warped or cracked)... now im onto my last pair of pt600..

I bought tgt292.1 from a member here ( he is the best!!!) last month and i really love that!! I think i sorta preferred that than the pt600 (maybe due to the rounder head and just felt more solid/stiffer slightly)!!

Oh and vsbabolat now that ur here.. ive been meaning to ask u this for a long time.. u mentioned u stripped ur pt600 into the hairpin and remolded the handle!! Who does this service! And if you did it urself!!

Any tips on how to do it? I tried to get the buttcap off but it seems to be stuck and i cant get it off! I ask because i brittled the rubber collar and tried to fix it by cutting tk87 pallet, sanded n reglue to make a new collar!! But when i play a slice backhand it seems to make like a cracking sound which is annoying..

I wonder if you have any idea on how i can fix this collar problem without changing the balance and weight of the racquet.

You mentioned your remolded pt600 plays like pc600? Same weight too?

Hey @graycrait, I always wondered if the Graphite Comp and the Graphite Pro were really the same racquet under different paint, do yo notice any difference between the two?
I don't think there is much difference. I would love to have access to a RDC machine to check these rackets out, especially a comparison of Powerflex, Power Pro, Graphite Comp and Graphite Pro. All the others exhibit relatively significant differences in flex, feel, etc.

I gave my PT600’s to certain racquet customizer. The PT600 were customized to my PC600, play and feel identical. The customized removed the SG handle and then molded one on.

The Graphite Comp is a much stiffer frame than the Graphite Pro. The Graphite Comp was stiffer than the POG. The Graphite Pro and Power Pro were much higher flex with a higher percentage of fiberglass than the Graphite Comp. I have not measured any of the frames on my RDC but was quite involved with Prince in the 1980s.

Pulled these two old timers from under the stairs. IG Speed 300’s. Stuck 6g of lead at 3 and 9 and tail weighted with tac to 340. Pacific overgrip and vibra dampeners. Flex in the high 50’s. Looking forward to taking them out on the clay tomorrow.
