I just picked up a silver ace from a used sporting goods store in 9/10 cond. for $10. Being a user of the Redondo I was curious to see what my racquets ancestors were like. I strung it up at 62lbs with proline x and it is hands down the best feeling racquet I have ever played with. I love how flexy it is. I was also amazed by the power and spin I was able to generate. I am honestly considering switching to this racquet; my only concern is the 85in (guess) headsize and the inability to get backups. Does anyone else have an experience like this when trying a classic racquet for the first time?
