I'm trying to find out the specs for the Prince Tour Graphite racquet which was sold by TW several years ago. I'm particularly interested in the unstrung weight, stiffness, balance, beam width and head size. I think from memory that the head size may have been 93 sq inches. The frame i'm referring to is basically black withnarrow green and yellow stripes around the head and down the throat to the grip.
How similar was this racquet to the POG mid?
Thanks in advance.

No idea but here are the specs on all prince racquets with the word TOUR in the name ( except for the Pillow Tour Softy Soft model)

@Sanglier , can you give the chronology of the Prince Crossbar Mids? I only have 4 left and never had a 1 stripe other than the one with both grommets and bumper guard, 4 stripes both with "MidPlus" and "90" at 12 o'clock, and a couple of the "Tour" versions. I have never had one of the green/gold 2-stripe versions. I have had the newer Prince Classic Graphites in 100 and 107 that had this same green/gold 2-stripe pattern, but no earlier mid with that green/gold stripe pattern.

They’re all roughly the same.
1984 was the first Graphite 90
1987 is known at the 4 stripe Graphite 90
1987+ became the 4 stripe Graphite Midplus
1997? 20th anniversary or Straight Shaft
2000 Graphite Tour Midplus
2010 Graphite Classic Midplus

They all use the same grommets. They’re all 93.

I have only paid attention to 1-stripe models, so 1987 is my cut-off point. Everything I know about the later variants comes from reading that massive POG thread in the Classics sub-forum.

As for specs, my 1-stripe mid weighs 358g (12.6 Oz) strung, has a 4.6 Pt HL balance, with a 332 SW, and measures in at 71 RA. My early 4-stripe mid weighs 342g (12.1 Oz) strung, with a 9.3 Pt HL balance and 317 SW, and measures in at 67 RA. Lastly, my 4-stripe "Midplus" weighs 334g (11.8 Oz) strung, is 7.1 Pt HL, with a 312 SW, and measures in at 70 RA. The 1-stripe beam is also slightly thicker than the 4-stripe beam (19mm vs 18mm).

Hitting with them I never expected them to be so stiff
