So my friend was at my house the other day and he took a peek into my closet and a particular racquet caught his eye. Being an avid tennis player he immediately freaked out when he saw that I have a "ProStaff". I didn't have any prior knowledge of racquets or even how to play tennis properly so believe me when I say I didn't know what the hell he was talking about. While rubbing the racquet against his face he told me that this racquet is worth a nice amount of money and is used by people like Sampras and (rumored to be) Federer.
After he offered me money (but I rejected as this old racquet once belonged to my father) he left in a daze, repeating the phrase "prostaff" over and over.
I did some research and I have come to find that this racquet does sell for a nice amount of money on ebay. Further comparisons of the original racquet and mine has led me to believe that I may have one of the St Vincent produced originals but I am not sure. I don't plan on selling it or anything but it would be nice to know what version of the prostaff I have exactly.
So I would like you guys to help me out in finding out, I have taken some pictures that would help so lemme know what you guys think! Any information and opinions are a much appreciated!
I took this picture to exaggerate the red primer under the black matte paint
I tried endlessly to get a clear shot of the three letter coding on the butt cap and this is the best I can do. It seems to look something like HNQ or HNO but its very hard for me to tell.
I have measured the width of the racquet and it appears to be 17 mm wide.
This is pretty much all I can give you guys, if you guys need more pictures or have questions please let me know!
