Prince pro stock code?

I have a Diablo mid pro stock which claimed to have been used by an ex-female tour player. The code printed inside the throat was still TC55D-93 but there was another code of TC55A-93 printed outside just above the grip next to the v-throat. Any pro stock expertise knows what the 'A' represents?

The code TC55 means it is a Prince Precision Retro Mould, the number stands for headsize.
Capriati played the 93 version of TC55
Malisse played the 100 version of TC55

I was told mine was from Capriati's stock which I bought some years ago.

Any idea what 'A' stands for? different layup, flex, weight or balance? Even though it has a grip 4 butt cap but the grip feel no bigger than the retail grip 3.

Most Prince codes are TX###A or P, the following usually refers to layup.
A is for retail. P is for Pro Stock.
The 3 digits refer to the mold.

Example given: TX141P-100 28" CK6A
TX141 - O3 MP mold.
P - pro stock.
100 - headsize
28" - length
CK6A - layup.

Prince puts the mold code on the spare grommet set (and on retail racquets, at least some of them). If you buy a grommet set for an O3 MP the label will read:
ENG. CODE: TX141A

As I wrote above, there are exceptions. The Prince Graphite Classic 100 mold code is TC0-100 or TC0H-100.

If you're going to keep copy/pasting @Automatix post, at least give him credit.
