we must stop talking about prokennex. it breaks my heart. I was sponsored by them when they first came out the heritage series that Failed. then I was forced to move back to Wilson ProStaff (tour 90, 6.0, 6.1) for the consistency I was looking for. here is a PIC of the Best Prokennex "players" racquet EVER. The colors were just Grey. I mean the idea that it was a weapon/tool not a pretty thing was great. but the public didnt buy in. The Composite for my racquet is 80% graphite 20% kevelar, 98sqi and weights about 13oz 18/20 pattern. From my experience its a Pro-level Racquet for $150 bucks at the time. Then 1 year later after the line was released, they took out the kevelar and the racquet played like ARSE redundo. It became way too flexible and lighter.

Martina I think used Bancroft early in her career
If you count McEnroe's 10 doubles slams (includes 1 mixed with Mary Carillo) that's 10 more for his racket.
Pat Cash - Yonex???
Goran Ivanisevic - Head???
