The 2014 PS90 a paint job that grew on me, mostly because it's the racquet I play with. Something about cream or white colored racquets looks really pretty while swinging. I feel like the color alone adds RHS to my shots.
I loved and miss those subtle shimmer paint jobs on Princes in the 90s; I had a Lite XB Midplus and a Comp 90 - both had it, and I miss them both. I love the simplicity of the new Phantoms too. When I saw the P17 Pure Strike though my mind was blown.
Matt finished rubbery, powder candy colours. Dont like gloss finishes as for some reason it affects the way the racquet feels. Like the Dunlop biomimetic 200 paint scheme, the Volkl Tour 10 mp, Dunlop Hot Melt 200, Pro Staff 97 black. I like the new RAW paint schemes.
I guess the first ever frame that caught my eye (*as far as the looks are concenred) was the Prince Spectrum Comp. Donnay’s first X-series had nice paint jobs, especially the X-Reds. The Volkl PB10 had nice paint jobs - all three version - especially the all black. Currently, I think Prince is back on top again with the Textreme Tour 95 & the Phantom series.
The HPS Tour 90 is the belle of the ball in my eyes - other lookers:
Angell custom 90 or 95 (the black, grey and silver - not sure what year)
Babolat vs control
Dunlop Maxply McEnroe
Head Youtek prestiges
Head prestige 600 (though it’s more the contrast of the paint job and the green half cap)
Volkl v-engine tour 9 (explosion in a paint factory)
Volkl Tour 8 (the black and red one - think it was called the crusher in the US)
Wilson blade 98
Wilson JK autograph millennium (paint job rather than playability)
A couple of more esoteric ones:
Jaguar Limited Edition (nothing beats racing green with a leather grip)
