Definitely this one. The blacked out frame will never become boring and looks great with whatever colour overgrip you put on it.
I'd have to go with the blacked out Volkl PB 10 Mid; I really like the black/yellow paint job, but the all black is just too good.
I forced myself to get used to its weight and balance. I actually slowed my swing down and just met the ball... to get the timing down, then slowly put more speed and force behind the shots... over about two weeks period. I was really dialed in after that.
After the first hit, though, I almost sold it because I couldn't get used to its feel coming from the IGPMP. The PST needs some time to get used to its unique feel and weight/balance.
Excellent Choice. I was thinking about it....and I have been through many generations of rackets....some beautiful and some ugly. I have liked plain ones (prince graphite, Yamaha Secrets), and gaudy ones (orignal pro 1) since the early days, and that continues to be true today...
When trying to think of one that really stands out, the RD7 sprang to mind, even though I never played with one (for more than an hour - thought about switching at one point - came close). The looks surprised me though...I was expecting gaudy, cheesy, yellow and red flames like some 70's dragster....but instead it was subtle with flare. Rich, dark, black with the colors blending in beautifully. Great racquet.
Even though I have an affinity for black racquets (e.g. Blade 93) this is one of my all time favorites.
Seriously, no one has mentioned these yet?
So true. Another gorgeous racquet. Played with this one and the Max 200G. Dunlop makes some beautiful sticks.
Anything Maria Sharapova is using
Prince Textreme Tour 95 or Wilson PS90
no one's mentioned the HEAD EDGEWOOD yet??
for modern frames I can't go past Fed's ncode, that paint job is synonymous with greatness.
Definitely the best racquet I've seen when it was announced a few years back. It's not vapourware though. You can buy it now for $750 here: http://www.lacoste.com/us/lacoste-sport/men/tennis/lt12-racket/LABLT001.html
Wilson Burn FST 95 - is a very good looking racket..
Vintage rackets best looking
Volkl t9-30 candy apple red with white accents
Puma super 0r the estusa provantech and the power beam series, with white strings red stencils and white overgrip
Kneissl red 90's model I think ...vertically halved into red and black with yellow accents
Kneissl's toms reach machine White and black model
Yonex Rd ti titanium mesh long the midsize red krajeck racket
Volkl c-8 pro ( mid 90's)
Model white and black hints of yellow( wish that the yellow would have been red accents though)
I love the Graphene Speed XT MP LTD
Monfils current blacked out Wilson, Dimitrov/Fed prototype racquets, or the latest RF97.
Head Youtek IG Instinct MP is the most beautiful racket I've ever touch.
These 3D style stickers (pic below) are very difficult to described or understand them in a photo...
Unfortunately the racket itself is too harsh...
The new RF97. Specs aren't my case but I'll be demoing it in the hope of liking it cause it looks so good!
The most beautiful racquet??? You cannot be serious! Who is obsessed with beauty in a racquet?
Should we have a beauty pageant ?
Some of the stuff on this forum is so absurd. But it does make me crack up.
'Wilson Blade 93 2013' hands down (of which the current FSTs and RF97 are just copycats).
The Yonex Ezone AI/DR 98 are not bad either, not as classy but nevertheless tasteful and novel look imo.
Ai98 is pretty ugly DR98 blue isn't bad.
To my eyes there is no racquet more beautiful, elegant, or regal than the 2012/2013 Wilson BLX Pro Staff Six.One 90. If I can make a car analogy, a lot of paint jobs are cool like Lamborghinis and Paganis, but the BLX Pro Staff Six.One 90 is styled like an Aston Martin.
Aston Martin just shuddered at the thought of gold spriraling stripes.
Looks like a white Power Ranger racquet
Agree to disagree on that.
How is it that some of the suckiest racquets have the best pjs?
Woodies and Olde Graphite
As of now off the top of my head.
Dunlop Biomimetic 200 looks great
Yeah those Dunlops also were gorgeous back then...

That's one of the ugliest paint jobs of all time. I can't believe it was approved. I'd guess you're in the minority on that one.
Steve Harvey will try to announce the racquet beauty pageant winner any moment now.
nothin to see here. Move along
I've just purchase this sexy lady for 20€ !!!
Vote for "20" !!!!!
Pictures don't do them justice. The 200 particularly is a thing of beauty.
Not even close. Add in the wonky shape of the shaft and the fat beam.... yuk!
Dunlop Biomimetic 300 Tour, Wilson BLX PS90, Angell TC90 with red grommets and black strings.
I'm sorry you feel that way.
