That is an awesome lineup. I’d love to swing those old prostaffs to see if they feel as great as I remember them in the 90s.
The one without overgrip unfortunately has a crack in the frame but it still looks fabulous on the wall. The other one has been used a lot (not so much by me) but still in good shape. The few times I hit with it were fantastic. Legendary racquet for a reason.

I would not call the f2.0 plush. It feels like 66RA to me. Much of that is the 18X20 string pattern.

Saved a Dunlop Maxply Austral, Dunlop Pasttime and Dunlop brace thingy to stop warping from being tossed by the club.

I'm not sure what on earth a Dunlop Pasttime is and whether or not it's worth restringing.

We had a few Emrik, Spalding, and Oliver International racquets, but outside of being a historical curio for a time I wasn't alive, I don't think any of them were good quality wooden frames. The nice Slazenger one I found was pretty badly warped. Almost an "S" shape. Shame though, it looked pretty good to me.

Love the M200 Classic. Got that and a Biomimetic 200, both in near mint condition, for $60. Two beauties added to the collection.
I do love both frames - however I have just discovered that my favorite 200 is Aerogel. I managed to buy a couple of them, new! The most plush feel in the whole line, also quite powerful.
 
Ahhhh, that's the one that I don't have! Have the Max 200G, Rev, MW, HM, M-Fil and Plus, AG4D and Tour, Bio, M200 Classic, and F2.0 Tour
Where are you from? There are some nice offerings at the moment on the usual auction site. It is so nice to find someone that still has a love for the 200 lineup!

I've just realized that Aerogel was also offered in a 16x19 string pattern. Great option.
Bu the way – do you know the unstrung weight of the lineup? M200 Classic was 322g as far as I remember. F2.0 Tour 323g.
However, Aerogel 16x19 is only 312g unstrung.

Never played with Rev – it was the predecessor to Muscle Weave – is it different?

What I really like about Bio 200 and M200 classic is the change of the mold – for a bit more PT57-like. So I can have my two favorite lines in one!
On the other hand - Aerogel 4D 300 Tour seems like a copy of PT57 mold. And it shares the same mold with PT924 – the only prostock of Dunlop that I have.
Fantastic feel by the way.

F2.0 Tour however looks more like a Wilson's Six.One mold. Is it less comfortable to use than M200? Never tried this one.

I have several of those, but I'm still drooling all over my keyboard. As far as my Dunlops go, it's hard for me to really tell what the difference is between them, in terms of stiffness, etc. All produce about the same amount of spin. They all feel relatively plush (except for the F2.0... that thing is much stiffer), especially compared to today's racquets. They got progressively lighter over the iterations, if ever so slightly. The Rev, with leather, pushes up over 13oz. (13.2, maybe). I used that as my main racquet for a while, strung with Bow Brand natural gut. Man, was that sweet. By the time I got that, it had been discontinued for a while, and Dunlop was at the end of the MW era. I got it on a super discount from a golf (mostly) store for $30, brand new. That's the theme with my 200 collection... got them all cheap. That one for $30, MW was given to me, HM I had gotten cheap, then it was stolen, then my girlfriend (wife, now) bought me a replacement for my birthday. M-Fil for $40ish, M-Fil Plus for $25 off of Craigslist, 4D for $20, 4D Tour on crazy discount from TW. They had a March Madness bracket for products with a larger discount for however far they got in the "tournament". Somehow, I got two discounts and got it brand new for $35. Bio and Classic, as I said, got them for $60 total, F2.0 for $45, and a friend found the Max 200G at a thrift store for $20 and refused payment when I tried to give him money. All in all, they play relatively the same, as one would expect. I've used the Rev, MW, and HM the most. Haven't really given the rest as much attention as they deserve. The one I've played the worst with is the 4D Tour. Heavy, not nearly as headlight as the rest, open pattern. Kind of like Prestiges. I have, but have never gelled with, the Youtek Prestige Pro. Something about the open pattern. And I think you're right with regard to the F2.0. Seems close to a Six.One mold. I think it may from Dunlop's mold they used for Tommy Robredo's racquets (Option C, or B... I don't know which).
 
Is this a custom paint job or a line of the PC600 I'm not aware of? Any more pics? And do you still use it?
Just sold it and took some photos. I think they look great with black CAPS and no collar. I must admit that I prefer IG Prestige Mid (or TGT292.1).
But in real life, I prefer 95" frames (both Prestiges MP and old Radicals) – or 98" box beams from Wilson (H22/BladePro).

That’s the Prestige 600 from 1991 and 1992. It was silver/dark grey with neon green grommets originally. I can show you a photo of it in its original grommets and all its glory.

My friend @Grieeegoorr would know about it. He uses it sometimes when we're hitting. Hits a mean heavy ball with that racquet. Plenty of weight and plough-through, but a small head. He plays very well with it. He'll have more details... I just have the experience of being on the other end of the net.

Hope he chimes in. Cheers
Gotta see all the photos, and watch closely.
Wanna know if it's fake or what

I'd say it is not genuine Wilson Ultra 2 with Braided Graphite & Boron, could be a genuine Multi Ultra 2 with ultimate graphite & UOPP (whatever that is) though. There is no mention of Wilson in any of the pictures you've posted, both my St Vincent's & Chicago's have Wilson where Multi is on this one & the butt cap in the picture you sent me is definitely not a original Wilson one. Would be interesting to hit with an Ultra 2 without Boron, I can't really tell from the pictures, is the beam tapered?

Are they 95s? I used to use nothing else from mid 90s to well past 2008 or so until an arm injury forced me to change. I used one in match recently and it was just wonderful. Pro Staff 6.0 95. The best frame ever made in my opinion.

I switched to this thing the first time I played it in a match. It does everything well, and it's forgiving to boot. Super under-rated racquet the 03 TT 100's.
Yup this segment is a large gap in the US market for sure . A comfortable players frame with mix of feel, pop and forgiveness with medium flex . Basically helps an aging player keep up with the younger guys with their Babolats lol
