Head IG Prestige Mid

the string pattern of the Head IG Prestige Mid is the most dense i've ever strung. 18x20 on a 93 sq inch head. you can use it as a fly swatter. i'm really tempted to find out how it plays..

My POGO stick. (Prince Original Graphite Oversize)

I have been looking for this racket since i got myself the K-Factor six.one tour. I fell in love with box beam rackets and I got to have them all! ALL!


Prince Graphite Oversize


There were various releases of the Prince Graphite since it first hit the market around 1978. The list below is the various incarnation of the classic that was made famous by Agassi and Chang.


POG 1 = Tear dropped shaped head single line with no grommets/no bumper and no printing on top or side or racket (possibly just sticker) except for Prince/graphite- circa 1978

POG 2 = Tear dropped shaped head, single line with grommets/no bumper no printing on top or side or racket (possibly just sticker) except for Prince/graphite- circa 1980?

POG 3 = Normal shaped head, single line with grommets and bumper, printing on side is "graphite series 110" top has no printing front is Prince/Graphite. Printed stringing weight is 70-80 - Circa 1983

POG 3.5 = Same as 3 but side says "graphite 110", String weight 60-75
Circa ?

POG 4 = Norm head, 4 line with grommets/bumper, printing on side is "graphite 110", top is "110" , side sticker says "series 110" front is Prince/Prince- , Printed stringing weight is 60-75 - Circa 1987

POG 4.5 = Same as POG 4 but top is printed "oversize", side is "graphite oversize" , front is Prince/Prince, printed stringing weight is 50-60 -
Circa > 1987 (any ideas?)


POG 5 = Straight shaft-Not sure of OS had straight shaft?

POG 6 = Tour





The one in my hands is the POG 4.5. It is a beauty. Condition 8/10.



The paintjob is almost perfect, bar a few small chips of paint here and there, barely noticeable. What a way to start 2012 with!

Fake Racket Spotted in Mudah.my



5 string holes in PWS area, Original only have 4
Original should come in Leather Grip. Warranty card should be in English.
If a deal is too good to be true, it usually is. RM250 for a NEW K-Factor 6.1 Tour? Unbelievable.

Let me get straight to the point why this is a fake racket.

- 5 string holes in the PWS area. Original only have 4.
- In the second picture, grip comes in white. Original should come in leather grip.
- In the second picture, the warranty card is printed in chinese. MAJOR telltale sign of a fake.
- Warranty card also spotted the nCode logo. This is a K-Factor racket, not a nCode racket.
There are 2 versions of the Original K6.1T, the US version at 340g (unstrung) and the Asian version at 320g (unstrung), and since we are in Asia, the racket should come in the 320g variety. Furthermore, the Original would not have "Made in China" printed beneath the silver Wilson.com logo.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

There are 2 versions of the Original K6.1T, the US version at 340g (unstrung)
and the Asian version at 320g (unstrung), and since we are in Asia, the racket
should come in the 320g variety.
