Mine is the Mizuno Lendl Type S.   It has a 90 in hitting surface and it is nicely balanced

I don't agree that the 200G is "Definately a serve and volleyer's racquet", especially since Steffi Graf used it to punish her opponents from the baseline. I've always found it strange that folks would categorize racquets based on style of play. I learned to play with wooden racquets, so I can play with just about anything. It's just a matter of adjusting here and there.
Hey Lendl Jr., you can add the photos right in the discussion.  You don't have to use the attachment feature.  I edited this for you.  Do you know how to do this?  Mark
My fave because it is just so classic!  And my first racquet!
Can you tell the difference?
On the left is the Boris Becker Super made by Puma. I've played with it.  You could adjust the racquet length my twisting the screw thingy at the butt cap. The one on the right was made by Estusa to Becker's specs after he was dumped by Puma.
No, the correct answer is the left one is an old and beat up racquet and the other one is a new and never used racquet. Just kidding, you are right. Estusa made a few different flavors of Becker Raquests from late 80's to early 90's. More than 10 years later, the company resurrected the line, but without any mentioning to Becker and with slightly different colors. The one in this picture is the most true-to-the-one-used-by-Becker version made in 1989. It is not equiped with a head bumper and has a "championship ltd. version" lettering in recognition of his dobule crown of Wimbledon and US Open in the year. Never strung and never used.
The one on the right has a bigger head too, right?  What are the head sizes of these.  And I hope you wont take too much offense if I declare this one of the ugliest sticks I've ever seen!  :-)
The head size is actually exactly the same (93 square inch). It's just visual and maybe because of the way I took the pic.
I guess my picture skill did not do justice for the racquets. With this guy playing with one, it may not look that bad. But don't ask me if he is using Puma or Estusa in this pic. Nobody really knows if BB actually ever used an Estusa or it was just a paint job. :)

no i dont.. how do you do that?

 

Mark, when you are commenting, there is a bar of icons right above the comment box.  The one second from left, uploads a photo (or you can link from a url), and puts it visible in the comment.

Find it?

It would have to be the Head Prestige Classic, but the stiffer Tennis Warehouse version remake. It was labeled just Head Classic 600. It comes very close in spec to the current Youtek Prestige Mid, which I own 5 of.
